IMO take it out. It is cool, but kinda sticks out

It doesn't look very natural. Keep it if you like it but it doesn't look very nice to me.

I agree take it out or get more to match but alone it throws off the tank.. draws all the attention to it.

Belongs in a beginner's freshwater setup with some neon tetras...

Agree with the others, totally distracting. Either get more to make it not stand out so much or take it out.

It is right in the middle, if it could be put to one side or the other I might prefer that.

I'm tending to agree with this. If it were maybe on the bottom on either side with some rocks on top of it and not so bright with the light shining right on it, then it might work.

Leave it alone, take those things out. Non of them work, give your tank the natural look it had prior. Plus your gaining real estate for coral.

Sorry honest and to the point. The before pic is much much better.

Of course this is just the Con's opinion
