    The left side does not support the depth impression. I think it is due to the 'wall-effect'. The path and the right side are very supportive to the depth impression.

    thanks for looking.

    you mean the cave light? i used flashlight to resemble the sunset.
    the orange back ground is the color of the house paint wall.

    a 40gallons tank using diy undergravel filter made of 1/2" water pvc.
    the lights i used are osram spiral and PL lights and diy co2 system only.
    substrate pebbles to cover the pvc top with volcanic black sand commonly use by local planted tank hobbyist.

    Which are you trying to achieve: a sunset or a cave?

    If sunset, try a VERY short plant against the back wall so that it is silhouetted black against the red sun. The red looks like late sunset, adjust light accordingly (front 1/3 of groundcover needs to be a bit dimmer). But if you want an earlier sunset, make the light orange and a bit higher. Then the tank could be brighter.

    If a cave, add...a cave.
