I think that you are off to a good start. Personally I would move the driftwood a little to the left or right. Even though the wood's shape is asymmetrical, putting it in the center is creating too much symmetry.

Looks good, I would also move the DW one side or another and then I would add a black background cover to the back of the tank it would really make the colors of your tank stanf out.

Yeah, I am going to move the dw over, and definately adding a black background, the one I have now was the one I had before with the fake plants and ornaments.

It looks nice but a bit centred. Most people like composition where thing sit in about one third from the edge.

it looks like we're pretty much in the same boat here, with tank size, lighting, etc. : ) your tank looks nice though. keep me posted!
