Looks good but probably removing the background will make it look better and make the real plants stand out... Either paint it with plain black or none... Just my 2 cents...

Use the actual IMG code link on your photobucket home page. It's a different URL than what you use to view the photo from within photobucket. Here's a visual aid for you:



Basically, you just copy that link that I've pointed an arrow at, then paste it right into your post here at the forums. It already has the

Glad I could help. ;)

It would be easier to critique with a straight-on FTS, but I'll give a try. It looks like it's off to a good start, and things just need to fill in more, as it seems fairly sparse here and there. But I definitely like the floaters, and I think you should try to feature them more, by either moving them to another area, or replanting the tall plants underneath them to another area.

Also, try to make sure that the taller plants stay in the back and the shorter plants stay up front, which goes a long way to providing depth for your aquascape. I like the MS Paint rendering, and if you use that as a guideline, I think your scape will turn out fantastic. It just takes some time to let the plants fill in, and see how they look next to their neighbors, and stuff like that.

Now give us a straight-on full tank shot!

yea definitely get a solid color background. I got a role of the cheap black plastic like table cloth covering. Then just cut it to fit the tank glass and tape it. The role is enough to cover many many many tanks lol. The current one makes the tank look super cluttered. I like how you have the hanging roots though. Looks awesome.
