Looks good, but somehow the wood just doesn't look right for this kind of setup. Maybe if the moss would fill in.

Nice, simple layout. I like the moss. The sand looks great, too.

I think it looks great. Are there any fish in it? or just shrimp

I guess we don't have to explain a triangle to you.

Aquascape? I'm a crypt farmer.

It's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

That IS an aquascape, it's titled "The Vacant Lot".

Looks awesome, don't change a thing. The river stones are a great touch.

I like it, even with the wood.

I enjoy the uncluttered look.

It looks pretty sweet. I actually like the "draped" look of the moss. Any plans for a background plant? Maybe some vals?

Re-boot!
