It looks great but it's a hassle to maintain. For example, fish food and fish waste will sink to the bottom of the basket or get entangled in the artificial grass. Sure they will break down overtime, but if you want to keep the tank pristine, it adds another layer of maintenance work (luckily I have an algae eater for this). Depending on how well you maintain your tank, this extra effort could just be a walk in the park. But if you're lazy, these waste may accumulate and ferment into an amalgamation of organic proportion.
Also, if your fish lived its course and dies, it will most likely seek shelter and die in it. I found the rotting carcass of two of my tetras in this ornament - they apparently died and sat in there for a while before I spotted them. When I tried to fish them out, they literally melted on contact. The other fishes began to pick on the disintegrating carcasses, so I guess the cycle of life worked itself out in the process.
The trick to cleaning this bad boi is to "flush it out" with a bucket of water. Suppose you've siphoned out approximately 1/2 of the water from tank, what I do next is take a bucket of water and pour it right into the boxwood ornament and all the hidden fish waste, left over food and debris will come flying out. Then I would siphon out the floating debris.
