Beautiful, I love the look. Especially how the plants grow out of the hardscape like that.

Yep ,I had also that feeling when I looked for the first time at the hardscape as being created...but then I managed to see the bigger picture.

Wow, I have a tank with the same dimensions. Never thought it would photograph that well, Only have two angels, a tile, and a java fern in there though.
