This diorama makes use of heavy Seiryu rock construction to give the impression of a massive cliff system. The rock work is build-up high against the sides of the tank and allows the mind's eye to extend the cliffs beyond the confines of the tank. This gives the impression of the tank front being just a window into a much larger setting. This gives a great sense of scale to the aquascape. Similarly the top edges of the rock work and the wood pieces flowing down from the sides converge to focus our attention on the small window in the middle of the scape - the most distant point in the aquascape - this also accentuates the sense of depth perception. The aquascape is lightly planted to show off the textures of the rock work.
