This tank demonstrates that using large sized hardscape well with great composition can make a large impact. This is almost a "wood Iwagumi" where the main focus of the scape is the interplay between the few large wood pieces. Restricting the aquascape to a few well-balanced elements give it a clean yet strong presentation - which contrasts sharply to many overly cluttered aquascapes where aquascapers sacrifice composition in an attempt to try to squeeze in as many details as possible. 

This aquascape also demonstrates good techniques at managing side reflections to extend the illusion of open space. A nice variety of non distinct plant species blended well together gives the aquascape a very natural feel.
