Great in fact.

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...

I like the left hand side a lot! I'm not the biggest fan of the floating island on the right. Personally, I would cut it off a few pixels to the right of the central island. Maybe put the TPT logo by itself on the right side?

Yeah, lots of interesting stuff there hidden by the logo.

I would make the large white area at the 2/3rd boundary on the right hand side blue, and put the logo there.

This will open up the detail on the left hand side, and the logo will be covering an area where nothing else is happening.

I like it the way it is. The eye moves naturally across the whole thing.

I'm fairly experienced with fish, but new to planted tanks.

How is that island staying up?

Supported from the top? Floating and tethered on the bottom? This fishtank is from planet Avatar?

@randym
Usually those islands are stuck on/attached to the rear wall via suction cups with a platform. But I have seen some smaller floating rocks and islands done by simply literally hanging them from above with clear string (fishing line).

By the way, I think the planet in Avatar was called Pandora (for some reason Pangia/Pangio also ring a bell to me)

Thanks. I might have to try it. I think my shrimp would like having an island to perch on.
