    Looks like a good start.

    I think you have to choose to use either the stone or driftwood and not both. They are both very dominate, and I don't think together they blend well.

    Also, I suggest sloping your substrate (higher in the back and lower in the front) to create more visual depth.

    The rocks are too bright and too round. They don't go well with the wood in my opinion. Even with plants growing around it, I don't see the two together (stone and wood) balancing.

    I would keep the wood, and remove the rocks. Then place a dense carpet of plants such as dwarf sag, crypt parva, glosso, or HC. These plants will grow and blend really well with your driftwood piece.

    but the problem is that i can't remove the rocks because if i take them off the water would be in contact with de bottom mineral... so algeas.. the root i could remove it but how could i fill the "big" area??

    if you like to remove rocks then try to remove as gentle as you can while a friend of yours is taking out water with a hose (put the hose in a way that will take whatever comes out when you remove the rock) then plase some sand to fill the gap and at the end make a big water change.

    thats what i would do if i was you


    sorry about the english its not my native language. ihope you understand
