Most people go with LR and DSB for the natural look. But it's nice to see someone going the traditional aquarium style. LR tanks look nice but they aren't as "fun". Downside is loss of the beneficial filtration of the LR. But personally, I like it.

Actually, I think it looks great! Very nice decore, I am not a big fan of fake decos but you have done a great job. It looks very "fun". The biggest challenge with fake decorations and plants is keeping them clean. Algea loves to cover these things so they just require a little extra attention. What are you using for filtration??

I like a more natural looking tank, but it really only matters what you think of it.
