Are you happy with the aquascape?

Just food for thought....I asked because it feels like something is missing.
You've got some great wood and I wonder how it would look if the wood piece you have in the right corner was just off center left as a focal point. Then the smaller wood piece angular off to the right slightly rear, but not in the corner - plants arranged accordingly.

Footnote: it's always interesting how we all have a somewhat personal sense of balance and symmetry.
In the end, your tank is your show.

AD
By all means, I do appreciate any input. In the previous tank I had the two wood pieces in the middle, but it took up space where light is best for plants, so I thought I'd try it in the corner (java fern can do fine off to the side, where there is less light). I added another hood/light so I have 2 sitting on top of the tank, making a total of 38 watts. One lamp is a 20watt T-8 the other is a 18watt T-5. I do have a crypt in my other tank, which has low light also, and it is growing like crazy, so I guess I could put that plant in that corner and move the wood more to center.
I'll adjust the wood in the other corner to move back toward the rear of the tank- good suggestion. Thanks!
