Mr. Chen from Taiwan created a natural looking layout by using both driftwood and stones. The arrangement of shade plants such as ferns and mosses also contributed to make a good ambience of jungle. However, the base composition is not so clear, especially the right side seems roughly arranged. The open space on the right end is a big disadvantage as the joint part of the back corner appears clearly. The composition would have become clearer if this space were filled by layout materials or aquatic plants.
