Thanks all! Lets see, where to start...
The driftwood is hard to see in the picture, but it is from back to front, so the only way to move it would take up more horizontal space. The filter output is at the top and the wood is concave, so itll stream down. It is just what I wanted, but a little large, i agree. Hopefully itll work out they way my mind is picturing...
If you can see the tape on the edge in the pictures, that is where i was going to have the water line. It is 6" from the top, close the golden rule. But, I think I have changed my mind and will go 6-7" from the bottom, so there is less water, enhancing the waterfall. This will let me have taller plants, which is more what i want.
As for the rocks, I was assuming the planters will shade the slate, making it less obvious. Again, something that looks great in my mind, but who knows. haha
I think for plants, I am going to determine what I have available already and add to it. Time for some research to see what my mother's garden holds. I know I saw some in other riparium pictures, so I am hopeful.
Keep the comments coming, I have lots to learn!
