Very delicate and colorful layout with good textures. I perceive a great affinity with the Nature Aquarium style however like all "island" style layouts which are generally monotonous this work sinned by also closing the sides of the aquarium with ribbon-style plants. The reflections on both sides which could give more amplitude volume and notion of perspective to the layout presented a simple and unattractive view. This is further enhanced when we note that the large width of this aquarium would provide this beneficial effect even more. Even at 60cm wide it is a layout that only has three layers.
Other points that also could improve are the pruning work mainly in the mosses that hid so much of the wood and an improvement in the work of shadows which are almost non-existent.
But anyway it is a job that deserves to be highlighted.
Congratulations very good Nature style !!!
