    Just a thought for you.

    At the end of the pathway plant a few low pale green plants as if there is more to explore over the slope.

    I might give it another dimension.

    I did say "might"

    Best of luck.

    Why have you removed the top plants it was a great feature you too a good Aquascape then to an Aquascape that was different and gave it an added interest?

    My main concern is that pathway the shape its self is OK but then you have a sharp line of bare rocks, then the plants to me it looks unfinished, in nature some plants would be growing on or around the rocks plus a few on the edge of the of the rocks and substrate.

    Keith, the AGA registration also features pics with the surface plants.
    You're right, i have to work more on the path. Maybe put some Fissidens fontanus here and there, maybe some small branches too.
    Also put some small rocks here and there to change the line of the path.
    Always nice talking to you guys and thanks again for the advice.

    You are an expert in your own right you have blended Aquascaping with Nature with that tank in my opinion you are very close to perfection.

    All those top plants look like it is a river bank of palms.

    Your tank seems to improve as it ages.
