It looks a bit symetrical and maybe slanting the wood against/away from the glass wood give it more interest!
I agree...maybe change up the hardscape a bit....although there is nothing wrong with symmetry, but many prefer a little off-kilter for interest...myself included :biggrin:
Looks good! Seeing that the back of the tank isnt going to get much light because of the shape I would put some low light TALL plants in the back. Perhaps Balansae or Vals, those would look sweet! I t would hide your equipment too :biggrin:
Dont expect that HC to stay in small clums for long! My HC in the ADA AS is spreading like wildfire!
looks nice but seeing it planted i think you should slant the driftwood peices over alittle.
