    Well done!
    You need to add the focal point to this layout by some red plants...

    Great tank!!!!!!
    I love the H. "sunset"!
    6 Feet, most be a very hard tank to keep up with?

    I agree it need a focal point. something to draw the eyes to. When I look at it im not sure where to focus my eyes on it so they run all over the place. IMHO

    I would like to be "that" amateur, lol. Your plant growth and health is professional ;=) Now you have a nice bunch of plants to start aquascaping.

    Ditto on the sunset hygro comments.

    Cheers !

    very nice tank! i fell in love with the star moss with RC on it. surely not an amateur for me. well done.

    just a suggestion, you could add any red plants as focal, like what they had suggested.

    Very nice tank my brother! The cherry shrimp look awesome against that star moss! Plants look very healthy as well. Good job!

    Very nice tank. I noticed lots of berries on the RCS, I have a feeling your colony is about to multiply rapidly.
