    I like your new aquascape! There is a great thread on this site that breaks it down aesthetically and was a real help to me when re doing my scape. I went with 2 islands which allowed flow and gave a minimal look but also added dimension to the tank front to back.

    Looks more natural and plenty of places to attach a variety of coral.

    Yes, two islands design adds interest and is something you would see in a lagoon.

    There’s a great write up on aquascaping called Aestetics of Aquascaping that a guy named Paul Whitby did Back in 2011 for Reefs Magazine. Check it out! It has a ton of usable information on how and why to place your rockwork and even, later, explains the use of color and texture contrast to make your corals pop.

It goes over the rule of thirds that’s used in art and architecture all over the world.
