I particularly enjoyed this work and I believe it has a lot of potential to be improved! The hardscape work is very good especially the details on the paths which are excellent. The foreground is very dynamic and "in motion".
The point that could be improved is on the pruning of mosses. In some places the mosses are very long losing the original shape and the profile of the rocks. Another point is that the layout does not have a priority since the 3 most important mosses have the same importance although the empty spaces are quite pleasant and well distributed. I believe a stronger taller and prominent focal point would make this layout better.
And lastly the black background took depth from the layout. Probably an endless background would give more perspective and depth of field to work. Anyway congratulations for the beautiful aquascape!!!!

Peaceful layout. I really like the feel and flow of this aquascape. Im wondering if the fish placement should have been slightly lower and fewer. Well done!
