Great forest layout!
Very nice natural atmosphere with high level of detail but present the same mistakes that always are recurrent in this kind of layout.
1. Wood in excess. When some elements are repeated they lose relevance because one takes away the force of the other.
2. It is not necessary nor desirable to interrupt or cross the paths with logs. Why just in planted aquariums is this beautiful?
3. The foreground is flat parallel with the front glass. In this way the foreground stays without dynamism and without points of interest.
4. The pruning technique is not adequate. In some parts of the layout the plants have a messy appearance needing to be pruned.

But the reflections are very good and the occupation of the space is good and natural. Nice perspective and sense of depth are the high points of this amazing layout!
