    I'm not sure if I wrote anything about perspective, but playing with perspective can make small tanks look large.

    Human's make judgements about size by comparison, I could write a lot more about the principles behind this, but I would suggest this for a 'narrow' tank:

    1. Use small rocks
    2. Use plants with small leaves
    3. Use lot's of 'different' plants (increase visual complexity), the other way is to use very few plants (minimalist), but don't go inbetween
    3. Use very 'deep' and 'sweeping' scapes, the narrower the tank the deeper the hill needs to be to give a sense of depth. Most people are too conservative on the gradient of their hills!
