A set of great master stones proudly set at the center of the scene - it is quite appealing. Yet the composition looks slightly imbalanced because there are no stones arranged on both sides of the center stone. In Iwagumi layout the arrangement of "suteishi" (a sacrificed stone/ornamental stone) is an important factor of expression just like that of the master stone. In this aquascape placing a piece of stone on the area of Microsorium could promote a good sense of balance to its composition. Overall it's an ambitious piece of work.  — Takashi Amano

This tank has a carefully designed "wild" look that I like. It is a tank that might be overlooked at first glance because you must linger to appreciate it. The change of gravel texture toward the edges draws the eye back into the aquascape the way a vignette on a photo would and the spill of large rocks in the center leads the eye along a curving path that looks very natural but I'm sure was not accidental. Very nice work.

Innovative rockwork! The substrate textures work brilliantly too. For me the weakest part of the composition is the untidy mass of stem plants on the left. I think I understand your intention of portraying a wild appearance but for me it's a bit too unkempt. All of the other photos especially the 3rd shot show off the aquascape magnificently. A superb effort!
