I love what you've accomplished in such a small space. Your choice of plants is great and the overall piece is beautiful. The only thing that jumps out at me as in the wrong place is the red in the corner. I'm not sure. Perhaps it could grow behind the edge of the green a bit more, or at least have some green in front of it. I think it detracts from the rest of the layout a bit which is awesome without it. Still does with it though. :) Seems like a lot of fish in there too. It must be near to bursting with action. :)

Glad you guys like the tank! I agree, the red is in the wrong corner, There is actually some green stems growing behind it, and I may move the reds to the right a little when I get back from my trip. I actually want a little less fish in there. But I can't catch fish worth beans (I will curse, cry, lay on the floor before I will catch a fish), and I don't want to tear down the entire tank to catch them. I tried various methods suggested for catching fish, but no luck. :) Thank you again for the compliments folks.

The one rock looks like a sitting frog. Is it a frog ornament, or just a rock? Love the floating plants! Beautiful tank!

Thanks! The sitting frog you refer is also a rock. They are all ADA Seiryu rocks bought here in Hong Kong, they are great looking rocks with character, looks good with sand or dark soil.
