Looks great! I really like to see sharp ledges and elevations in aquascapes. And creating nooks and crannies for fish to hide and explore is an under appreciated factor you didn't skimp on!

I have Marineland Penguin Biowheels (of varying sizes) as well. They are definitely on the noisy side, but they create far more water movement (surface and also subsurface) than equivalent aquaclears...

I can see the campfire feel to it as mentioned above, but I don't think its a bad thing. Definitely like the rocks and front wood piece, undecided about the back one. Nice to see a solid standalone...

I like the heavy hardscape, you don't see that too often.

The centre-left area with the two large rocks is what draws my eye, so maybe go with a larger-growing plant behind them that will grow to...

That's true. They do seem to be a bit slower generally which makes sense since they live in colder water. Maybe I'll make it a personal challenge to find and keep an active north american fish

Ok, thanks for the info, unfortunately I don't have a half decent camera and the snails are the size of a food pellet. I'll check the link online and try to identify them.
