Please tell me what you think and if you have suggestions to make better. Thanx

Here are the improvements that i would recommend: 1) i would put a wallpaper on the back panel (monochrome or with some kind of picture), 2) i would choose plants made of fabric (they look much nicer than plastic ones), 3) i would try to arrange the rocks in some kind of pattern (now they look as if they fell off the roof) 4) is that the outlet tube on the upper right corner? You can put it above the water level to create a waterfall effect and gain in aeration. You can also hide the filter hoses with a tall plant. The fish look nice. I think that a dark background would increase the contrast and improve the fish colors. fish avatar
For all those who score my tank if you would please leave a commment as to why you gave the score you did, just so I know what I need to improve on. Thanx fish avatar
