    It's really starting to look excellent, the ember's give a nice contrast too!

    Lovely transformation.

    Just one point. Don't you thing the blyxa behind the main mountain killing the perspective?

    yeah i was thinking about that before, i'm about to do the first trim of the blyxa and hopefully i'll get short dense growth instead of what it is now. although i might take it out all together and replace with lilaeopsis or dwarf hairgrass.

    This instantly became one of my favorite hardscapes, you've got a strong sense for design mate:rock:

    I'll echo what Tirtha said. Blyxa is just ruining the whole perspective, its not working for me even if I imagine compact dense growth. Its better to opt for something that has a very fine texture. Maybe some curly japanese hairgrass(eleocharis sp) or maybe UG will go apt there.

    The tank looks great!

    May I ask what substrate you are using?

    Nicely done. Would it look better if the plant at the left back is also HC?
