    Looks great!!

    One thing I learned from those super show tanks is not to center or "balance" the tank with equally spaced decos and plants. Same is in art. The winning tanks usually split the tanks into thirds, with the main features being off center. This makes your eye wander around the tank viewing the whole scene, and makes open areas for the fish...it is very effective IMO.

    Sorry, maybe too balanced isn't the correct word!!
    Think of it like a shelf or and really cool picture...make the design cause your eyes to scan constantly...from a main focal point to other interesting lesser focal points.....sorry, maybe its the painter in me!!!...lol

    I like it, the thin twisting drift wood looks really well with the plants.
