This is a stunning tank. I do not usually like fake waterfals and the like, but this is beautifully done. Absolutely magical!

This layout transmits peace and tranquility, when I see it, I remember scenes from a lost untouched paradise ... When your work awakes this kind of emotion, you achieve the high level in aquascaping. This is ART! Perfect color, perfect use of space, perfect use of plants (the H. pinnatifida fits like a glove) ... The only point can be improved in my opinion is the foreground left side. Perhaps some small details there would make it more interesting (just a small detail)... Congratulations for this masterpiece!

I am not a big fan of the water fall look. It adds a bit of wimsey to an amazing layout. It detracts from the scape. Otherwise very nice.
