What do you think?

So I've really gone head-first into this whole planted tank thing. My wife thinks I've lost my mind! Please tell me what you think. I'm always looking to make improvements.

Thanks!

Your tanks look amazing, I dont think you need to do anything now but just enjoy them. I am about to go into the planted world, I just ordered a new light fixture and once that comes in, im going to start planting like crazy

Those look nice, I especially like the top one on the right, as the large rock is slightly off center and breaks the visual line nicely. The one of the top left could use a really nice piece of driftwood, and the white rocks in the one on the bottom need to be shifted slightly left or right so they are slightly off center. Hope that is helpful.

Thanks guys. I really appreciate it. Planted tanks is a challenge for someone as impatient as me (thus the C02! Ha!).

Renegade- you nailed it. There's a decent chunk of driftwood in that first tank, but it's engulfed in anubias and crypts. I'm thinking a nice manzanita branch would be ideal? I tried to start off center on that last one too and create that crevice between the wood and quartz. Darn 20g talls are so hard to get off center. Maybe I'll try the pebbles under the dw in that one.

Thanks again for the input folks. Love it!
