Your multiple substrate idea to separate the tanks into parts was brilliant, looks awesome!
I think the only change I would make, if I tried to mimic this, is that I'd try and find a wood piece with a branch long enough to arc over to the right side island. Then moss the whole branch to make it look kinda like the plant life crept over the wood and into the new spot.
Ha ha ! Have you been spying on me ? Thats exactly what im in the process of doing LOL
I have a few pieces to work with but none seem to be "perfect" its getting a little annoying .
