It needs something higher, another piece of wood or bigger rocks. I also think you need more plants to fill it up some. It is off to a great start.

What fish do you have in there? I'm just curios

I agree that it needs a higher piece of rock or wood and more plants to fill it out

First thing I would do is put a black background it will help a lot everything looks good but what I would do is get some dw (probably a couple) and make a dark spot for them...move the sword over and take pieces of dw and make it look like roots from a tree coming out of the top of the water that way its more kilter what's in streams... That's just me though

A black background I think will make a huge difference in the appearance IMO.
The colors'll pop and almost make it seem for filled in ... IMO.

You have 3 goldies and plants that aren't getting shreded? Good job My mix of fantails will either eat it or tear it out of the ground lol. I have a lot of Anacharis for them to munch on, so that's something to consider. As for moss (java), my Panda fantail ate every string of it, so you might want to do a small test before making a wall of it IMO/E.
