This is an good example of a Ryoboku - an aquascaping style that makes use of wood pieces composed with bunched plants for volume. Java fern is easy to grow and great for such layouts as they grow well being attached to wood & rock without needing to be planted into substrate. The interplay of shaded areas and green highlights gives good volume to the center body while a touch of red prevents the aquascape from being too monotonous. Fish are well chosen - their bright coloration contrasts well with the darker shaded regions of the tank.
