looks good, but you need to size your pic down.

I would like to see something more on the right, looks heavy on the left and needs banlanced somehow IMO. I would like to see more done with the Crypt Balansae. Lots more and grouped together on the right.

Ive been trying to figure out how to convert an old pc tower into my own server. You got any how to links?

My server is just an old Pentium III, nothing different about it hardware wise than any other computer. I run Windows 2000 Server on it and Exchage Server 2000 for my email cause I host my own email too. This serves as my file server, domain, web server, ftp server, and I back up all my stuff to it so that I always have 2 copies. I dont know of any websites dedicated to setting up Windows2K Server, I learned in college and by just messing around with it, and its expensive if you cant get a bootleg copy of it.. but who would do that?? lol

I like the way the driftwood kind of pokes out in a few places. But, you are right, the crypts are a bit wild. You should harvest a chunk of them and offer them up for trade on something. It seems like you have a bit too many long, grassy looking plants. Maybe add a small leaf bunch plant (e.g. babytears / pearlgrass) and / or some branching stems (e.g. stargrass or Cabomba sp.) and / or some delicate leaved plants (e.g. Mayaca).

That's what my eye suggests,
