Strong sweeping wood work gives a sense of wind and flow. Aquascape has a wild naturalistic feel to it. More finesse in planting and hardscape details will enable this scape to score more highly.

What a beautiful forest style aquarium. Its trees are very striking and strong give weight and power to the layout. I also liked the shadows and the choice of aquatic plants. The point I draw attention to is the excess of logs in the front portion. I believe that some could be removed especially the thin ones. Another point I believe to bring confusion to the eyes is the excess of white or empty spots. Perhaps the leftmost point could be eliminated. But anyway it's a deep layout and I like it a lot. Congratulations!!
