Comment by the expert

Greg Martin: As the whole tank is not shown it is difficult to assess the layout as a complete picture. Whilst the internal theming appears to be a mess it is probably indicative of the actual biotope.

Peter Unmack: Would have liked to see a view of the entire aquarium in the video, can’t judge the layout of the whole aquarium, details were a bit sparse for many of the categories.
