As for the design, it looks very good, its a bit Pale to me though, to much white light maybe? anyway it looks good imo. Better than anything i could do in a nature scape aspect! The right side is a bit bare, but i figure that will fill in over time.

Over all rating:

8/10

As long as we are talking about design and methods, it is all good. How old is the tank in the photos?

The tank has been running for about 6 weeks now.

So yes it will fill in eventually. The right side is mostly planted with various cryptocoryne, so this will fill in slowly

Thanks for the comments all!
