I am judging this tank as a biotope the composition is good and the materials used for the tank really help the tank to look like flooded forest I always enjoy the use of leaves and the amber color of the water.
Good work

I like how your black water makes the red cabomba color pop even more. Your foreground is stronger than your woodscape and background planting, both of which are a little too symmetrical. The heterogeneity of wood diameters and the leaves are a nice touch. thanks for sharing.
