Nature aquarium rules!! What a dynamic and natural layout. Very good work with reflections and well detailed. I loved the central tunnel which takes our view to the background of the layout. It is a pity that the two sides of the layout are too symmetrical. If the ratio 3:2 would be used, the layout probably will gain much more impact and strength. But personally, this is the kind of layout that feeds my soul. Congratulations.

Another great example of using color to create a vibrant and interesting aquascape. The wooden "bridge" and broader sand path is a nice variation on this popular style.
