The arrangement of the small driftwood in the middle looks artificial. Scape also not very well balanced.

Additional Information The powerhead brings the water up through a hose into a "Y" conection where it comes out on the right piece of driftwood and the middle piece to keep the moss from drying out. I tried to make differnet zones for the Toads/Newts so they could go where they felt most comfortable (cave, in/out of water, on land)
