    There is a lot of detail in your tank using heavy and twiggy pieces of DW.

    The selection of rock colours is very close to the substrate used which is very good, except for the front centre grey rock.

    Your design is very central in fact each sides practically mirror each other, only there is no rock pile on the LH side.

    I would also like to see some sort of backing to lift the Aquascape out a little more.

    When all the plants have developed I think they will soften all the DW and make the tank even more interesting.

    That's an interesting scape. But IMO the central pile of stone isn't doing much to the scape, I would have preferred a flat even layer near the front pane. The wood should have been slightly off center to create stronger focal point.

    You have pointed out a few very important points about Aquascaping for rodoselada to consider.

    The layout now looks a looks a lot better now not so central.

    I am very confused at the moment it looks like you have had some special effects done to make it look like bare trees after a snow storm.

    It looks like snow but could it be dead plant material of something you disturbed when you were doing the changes.

    See if you can net or syphon it out also check your filter.

    rodoselada,

    Its coming along very nicely a very light trimming "might" help to thicken it up a little.
