The use of vertical wood in the mid-ground, with a wall of vals in the back, creates a really nice sense of walled depth - very good 'scaping choices on your part. Probably kind of pushing the limit on your fauna stocking, though ... if I had to wager a guess, I think your best choice would be to move the silver shark and turtles to other tanks ... still, this looks really nice.
