Aquascaping poll

Hey,

You all know how long it takes to aquascape and yet at the end, you feel like maybe you could do better. I like this but I need some objective points of view on whether or not this aquascape looks natural.

good to me...one opinion of mine is to have a peak somewhere. If you look at the overall rock it looks sort of square. I like the highs and low look (kinda)...Just for the record I think yours looks good!

This is really a matter of personal preference. It looks nice to me. If you like, leave it.

Chalk another one up for liking the way it looks a lot!

Unless you are entering it into a show, there's only one person that needs to like it, though, and that's you!

Looks pretty sweet to me! i agree that its really a personal prefrence though. also depends kind of on what fish you plan to keep. some fish like a lot of caves where as others dont. good luck!

Nice arrangement. I think your fish friends will be most happy to move into that.

Just double check your water flow around the setup and you got yourself a pretty nice scaping job.

I think its pretty good. I have about 4 places my fish can swim through, and I hope thats enough. I know fish love a lot of rock to swim through. Good luck with yours!
