I'm impressed. Good work, I'm not usually a big fan of driftwood layouts.

beautiful, a background would go a long ways, especially at showing off the tetras.

Aside from what I consider to be a perfect hardscape, I love the mixture of colors throughout your plant choices. Once those stems fill-in I'd imagine the most ideal splash of red amongst the beautiful field of green you've created. Any specific care taken maintain your glosso?
