I absolutely love this little canyon scape. The path meandering off behind the cliffs is lovely as are the plants cascading down the rocks. No it's not something we haven't seen before but it is still very well done!
— Karen Randall
What a beautiful canyon!
Very good proportions and positioning of the hardscape!
The reflections from the side panes are interesting and the shadows are very strong and harmonious.
The work with the Anubias could be better in a more natural way as they are all artificially lined up.
The front part of the layout is too parallel to the front glass and could have more finishing details.
Perhaps Paracheirodon simulans would be more appropriate due to its smaller size.
But in any case your work is sensational very strong and natural congratulations!

The piece showcases an impressive level of hardscape despite the somewhat limited proportion of aquatic plants. It's surprising to see such detailed canyon-like features and perspective in a small-sized tank. With a bit more time I'm confident an even more fantastic piece could have been created. Thank you for sharing this wonderful artwork and congratulations!
