    This tank looks great as is. It has room for the Discus to swim around the whole tank and in different directions. The only thing I would change is the figurine, I would take it out as it does not match the looks of the tank.

    Agreed, lose the statue.

    The tank looks very well manicured, and very healthy.

    Even the white and red stone in the front looks kind of out of place. A nice jagged natural stone might be better suited to the natural look you have.

    hahaha cute that youre asking about aquascaping, at the end of the day its YOU who is going to look at the tank the most so scape as YOU like it!

    my input? lose the statue (being the human hater that i am i personally would not add anything to my little "frame" of nature that would remind me of humans. i already have the the glass tank, the heater, the pumps, the filter, the room ARGH!!!!!!......to remind me) and put back that branch as i thought it was pretty nice
