I like the rockwork a lot. I think you'd be better off going with the hair grass behind that rock on the left though, and use the hc in front. Seems like that rock will be quickly overwhelmed, and you'll lose that left counterbalance, jmo.

i would like this tank a whole lot more if you used a dark color substrate to contrast with the rocks, the rock and the substrate blend in together, its not pleasing to my eyes. i really like the rocks, its like a brown version of seiryu
