Default 72G Controlled Fury

Haven't posted a setup in a while due to lack of time. With that in mind this setup contain no traditional stems that need constant pruning. It is mostly slow growers and plants that don't need regular trimming. The pic below is 4 months after setup. Any comments are appreciated.

very nice simplicity and peacefulness to it, but looks very flat, at least in the pic.
maybe tilt the wood forward some to expose more to frontal view or add some val nana along the back for another layer? just some ideas.

nice!
I know from experience a 72 bf is not easy to plant and have any kind of depth.

Thank you very much for the comments. Kinda surprised by the depth comments since I actually think the tank has alot of depth for a 72g as vancat made reference to. Might also be the black background and blackened sides too that reduce look. Also waiting for the Cyperus to grow alittle more.

Newt this is my only scaped tank right now, but I do plan on starting another small one soon.
