    looking back, I think you should Move the two furthest rocks over just a little bit. It looks too spaced out IMHO.

    Im sure when the foreground plants grow it will be like an open field in the section of the tank.

    Those are really nice rocks. I hope they still show a lot of their character once the plants fill in. I look forward to seeing this progress.

    I agree, wonderful set a rocks. I think the growth of the plants will only enhance the rocks and help them blend in a bit more with the scape overall. Once that happens, this scape will be even better looking then it is currently. Keep us posted.

    I think you should kick out front center right rock... it's to symmetrical.

    Looks great...I would remove one rock so you have an odd number of rocks. Possibly the lighter colored rock. Sort of distracting and doesn't look like the same type of rock. Also angle the smallest rock so the it sort of points to your focal point. As if to say "hey, walk through the passage". Try leaning the largest rock towards the opening as well, so it's right side is not so vertical. Also the larger rock to the left should be angled towards the opening as well.

    Just some thoughts!!
