For fish, take a look a emerald eye rasboras. By themselves, they may look drab, but mine have great schooling behavior and are always seem to be active. Watching a bunch of blue eyes swim around your tank is kind of mesmerizing. Tetras always seem to just hang out in a big loose school, at least for me.

IMO, placement is perfect.

Looks good. I can't wait to see everything grow in. As for the fish, I'd go with Ember Tetras like Searun said. Not as many people use them and they color out really nice.

Whoa! The tank has a lot of perspective. The rock looks like a mountain. I think the rock should be in the middle-left of the tank though. You could have a school of cardinal or neon tetras in the tank. I rate it a 10/10. By the way, what is your substrate?

I agree at this point. But I think it has more to do with what stage the tank is currently in. The left side is seemingly empty and does not have much "action" so to speak. Once it all fills in, I feel it will look totally fine.

I like the rocks...maybe you could add more "bushy plants/trees" to the left?

I have the same (sized) tank. Is it a Fujimoto? I got mine at Gardena Pet Center. This size tank is probably the most underrated. But it is great for aquascaping.

That's a beautiful scape you've got going! Thanks for sharing.

I think it looks great where it is. First thought is, "That's a 90 gallon tank?" That rock is perfectly proportioned for the tank, IN PERSON. When photographed it makes the tank seem much smaller than it is because the rock is the frame of referance, people don't expect such a large rock and scale their idea of the tank to fit the rock. With fish, or more planted, then i think that issue is resolved, there are other points of referance.
