Nice scape although it's a little bit unfocused to me.
— Kris Weinhold
Oh... this tank makes me stop thinking a lot about it. By one side I love the hardscape arrangement and the combination of stones and driftwood. I feel it is very natural. By the other side plants are overgrown and the photo quality is not good enough. So... I cannot give a very high marks to this tank but with just taking care of this details this tank could be a top.

This is one of those works that you either love or don't even notice. The hardscape's work is perfect very natural and harmonic.
Its positioning the general proportion of the layout points of interest all very well executed. Certainly the author knows very well what he is doing.
In the other hand the health of the biosystem and the quality of the photography aren't so good.
It is clear that this layout is not at its best moment and that plants are suffering from imbalances. So the algaes are standing out. Better cleaning of the rocks would be welcome as well as better plant work especially on the right side.
To make matters worse the quality of the photography was worsened because the whole photo is very yellow (the plant choice did not help).
Thus as this is not a photography contest I want to congratulate you on the beautiful work of hardscape and spatial vision giving a vote of confidence and faith in his next work especially with regard to fertilizing and maintaining healthier plants.
Congratulations on your work its deserves to be among the best.
— Andre Longarco
