I think it looks great.
I prefer it without the moss rocks in the front, it makes it look unorganized.

Congratulations

This is fantastic. Inspiring. I wish there was a way to hide the equipment in the tank. Mine all have the same problem of course, but somehow the more beautiful the tank the more jarring the equipment.

You could probably get some things cheaper though, like the light. CO2 is not necessarily needed so you could get it up and running for less

looks very nice to me. the stump on the right might be a little bit "heavy" in relation to the other branches, but that's just me. i like the moss.

I just did a conversion and i get it to 130 us dollars too, I think if you were to go down the route of just desk lamp, no co2 you could probably do it for alot less
