Please feel free to give me any insight or thoughts on layout for my tank. Is there anything else I can do to make it look as natural as possible?

Looks pretty good so far. If it were me I would get some smaller pieces of driftwood that look like small branches and just toss them in andlet them lie on the bottom where ever they fall, that would look more like a river or lake bed.

Hi! Beautiful tank!

I wish I knew more about plants, I am just learning myself. I would say some nice tall plants on the right side and maybe a few short ones stuck amongst the rocks on the left. I am in love with this little plant right now...

I think you could move the big pile of rocks and driftwood away from the left glass some. That would help fill up the open space in the middle.

What is your stock and filtration. I have a 125G as well

Beautiful tank! The only suggestion I can think of is switching out your current background for a plain black background

Lol..I have yet to upgrade my filtration, right now. I have just a hob aqueon 75 from my 75 gallon setup, and a reef octopus hob protein skimmer with charcoal added to move the water around and help with the cleaning a little...right now the tank has
1Black ghost knife
1Green severum
1Pike cichlid
3angels
3 clown loaches
1Red tailed shark
1Bala shark
1Butterfly loach
4 gouramis
1 Bristle nose pleco

Hello, Welcome to Fish Lore
I'd have to agree with above, I think a solid dark background would show off your fish much better.
And hopefully some of the stocking guru's will be around to help you with some stocking issues.

You have a few stocking issues as others have said. If you'd like to discuss them feel free to ask. Though it's a very pretty tank

Aside from needing a few more clown loaches(which was definitely in the works), I'd for sure like some input on what else I could do! Thanks for the feedback

Also, id say your overstocked then. Try rehoming some before buying more as there is fish in your tank that grow very large!

Long term I'm not sure how the pike and bgk will get along. Pikes can be incredibly aggressive

Clowns butterfly and balas need to be in groups. A 6 foot tank won't be enough room for clowns or balas long term as they get huge and need even larger tanks.

I'm definitely going to take all this info into consideration... mmmm not entirely attached to the clowns or the bala for the most part. Was pretty much looking for some diversity in the tank. Any suggestions on other different kinds of fish that would be good in it? I like oddball stuff for the most part
