Very cool design. This almost looks like a paludarium even though it's entirely underwater especially with the more bare area in the bottom and the fish there. I like how you kept the top area more bright than many of the other similar scapes that use this hardscape approach but cover it entirely with moss.

I love the design of this aquarium with that beautiful execution of the branches entering the sandy shore. It is a pity that this aquarium could not have a longer maturation time to obtain the best results. The high zone with excessive neutral space distracts from the true vanishing point by using stem plants this could have been corrected.

Finally a great mangrove representation.
The great sin of this aquarium was the lack of plants and maturation at the top of the layout. The skyline is too empty of plants...
There was a lack of stem plants to fill the empty spots on the sides and thus give even more prominence and importance to the central void which is very well located and represented.
This layout needs more plants and maturation time to become a top ranking... maybe next time!!! Keep working you have skills!!!
