    Same suggestion on your other thread, add small rock on the right of the biggest rock and another in front of it slightly to center.

    Thanks for the tip, I think you're right.

    I may be impartial because I've almost done exactly the same thing (but not an iwagumi). I'll just echo what Shadow said. You'll have a lot more depth if you position the rock as mentioned, at least that's how it looks in my mind :)

    Hi,
    This is a very interesting technique which I'd like to try out someday, since I've seen it in some of my favourite aquascapes. I think you should use much smaller rocks at the left side to increase the effect. Also, it would be nice to see some photos taken from above.
    Thanks for sharing

    The second layout definitely has more depth. I also encorporated fundamentals of painting into my latest 'scape :) You may have trouble with the plants, as you can imagine. Although, I think that if you stick to fine/small leaved plants in the background, and plants with larger leaves in the front, you can accomplish this quite well.

    Best of luck
