#384: 42.4L Aquatic Garden Luzone Montane Rainforest

John Dustin Victorino Pasig, Philippines


Well done forest layout but too perfect and symmetric. This kind of "perfection" takes away from the naturalness of the layout.
The "stems" of the trees could be thinner and there is too much repetition of driftwood at the foreground.
There was an abrupt transition from the foreground to the middleground it should have more intersection plants.
The foreground could have some cosmetic sand rather than being completely covered by carpet plants. In this way we would gain another work plane and better perspective.
Maybe another type of fish with less contrast would be better.
Keep aquascaping dude!!! Your father is definitely proud of you!
