Very nice tank, I love the hardscape. And your journal looks nice, too, just wish I could read it.

Default great composition

That layout is really dynamic. It looks like it is moving almost, it's just totally vital. A nice use of negative space-- I wish i had your restraint, I tend to stuff plants everywhere even though I know the open space makes the busy parts look better. You have an artistic eye!

Wow. IMO the grass in the rear was complimenting the composition better in the older pics, and the rotala looking stem plant could use some trimming/fattening up, but it still looks very nice grown in.
