Just knowing the serious disadvantages of this fish is a major distraction from the aquascape. This speaks directly to one of this forum's judging points regarding the compatibility of fish to aquascape.

This is not the first time Amano has used this fish in one of his designs. See pg #83 in the 1st volume of his "Nature Aquarium World".

What does everyone see as the focal point in this layout? I find my eye is being led up and mercifully away from the foreground which I think is unsightly.

The focal point seems to me to be the right leaning driftwood spike at the top. The effect, I think, is for my eye to wander up and into the empty water column. I can't imagine that this is what Amano had in mind. I end up missing the point of the fish and the foreground.

Does anyone else see it this way?
