Guess I can no longer call this an iwagumi, not sure how to change the title of the thread.

While I love the lushness of this tank, what the hardscape did achieve was a focal point... maybe use another contrasting plant species somewhere in the rule of thirds to draw the eye... a dark plant maybe on the left third?

Just a though, but I am still jealous of your growth

Very healthy looking, great job.

(Btw to change the thread title you change the title of the initial post. Took me a bit to figure that one out, too.)

Looks great but the rockwork really made it pop to me, maybe smaller rock or driftwood for some contrast?
