If you think I am too abrasive there is a little triangle icon in the bottom left of your screen to "report post".

Looks really good, I might add some short plants or a piece of driftwood to the middle to break things up a bit but it looks very good.

Nice work. If I may, i would just suggest a dark background, something as simple and inexpensive as black construction paper that you can buy a sheet of at the arts/crafts store. It would expand the space and help to break up that centre open area that lorax84 referenced.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

This is a great start. It looks nice, and it's apparent that you put a good deal of thought into it. I would agree that a background would be a nice addition, and perhaps an interesting rock or piece of wood somewhere in the middle(but not dead center). What are the species of fish that you have there?
