This is one of those tanks that people are going to love or hate... I love it! I've seen a number of people try to simulate trees and it usually doesn't work well. You've done a wonderful job!!!
— Karen Randall
Very creative idea! I think this tank give unforgettable memory in peoples' mind!
— Justin Law
It is one I know and a good breakaway from the traditional. The tree is obviously the highlight and well done at that. Strangely this is one of the few scapes where an incompletely grown in "foreground" is preferred. I am not however a fan of the moss plantlife in your stream. At least in its bushy state it takes away more than it gives.
