The mighty root in front is almost intimidating.
I see a lot of shadow and drama here given such a small format.
The reflections of the side windows have been used well so that the narrowness is not so noticeable.
A very courageous work and your courage should be rewarded!

A very special tank!!! I really like it. The risky employment of the main point (tree) and a perfect employment of perspective in both sides created a very unique structure. Also the planting was fitting perfectly enhancing the work. My congrats. This tank deserved the great score from me.

The first big challenge of this project is to use a perfect cube. The second is to present a dynamic and not monotonous layout inside the cube! That said two points for the house! What a wonderful montage.
The flow and dynamism of the montage are clearly noticeable and move from the background to the front of the layout.
The white sand further accentuated the notion of perspective and depth and certainly the great slope of the substrate helped even more in this pleasant sensation.
One of the few sins of this montage was hiding too much the "Amano void" in the left at golden ratio. If some plants had been more pruned this aquarium would be much more natural and attractive.
Congratulations what a great montage!

Be careful of your reflections! Look at how much stronger your layout looked before you filled your tank with water. The reflections really play heavily into how your tank looks once the water is in it and what once made sense becomes chaotic around the edges.

This scape shows a great display of composition and has some very strong lines that give the impression of depth. The photography and water ripples are very well done too.
