I'm almost positive he means the left. Definitely seeing improvements every time you give it a shot, so keep at it until you love it, you'll get there, you're already quite close. Generally speaking, rock groups should be odd numbers. This isn't ALWAYS true though.

BTW, 120H is my favorite non-special order ADA tank, amazing dimensions. I'm jealous.

If you remove the 4th rock from the left, I would slide the two right most rocks to the left a bit so the gap isn't weird. I think the result would be pleasing and slightly off centered to the left side of the tank.

Just one idea though, working off what you had. Im not sure of your process, but if you follow Amano's outlined steps iwagumi tends to be easier. Generally place the main stone, then the supporting stone. Then work from there.

You are improving though! Keep it up.

Like the scaping! Hope you're going to get bigger rocks, those things are going to get drowned in a 120H! Excited to see what you're going to be doing!

I'd squish it to the left more, closer to the center grouping.

I'm interested, why just sand?

I really like how it looks there I'd just smooth the sand out a bit
But IMO you've made some depth with the rising rocks they look like mountains very nice

Immages of a prototype stand i built for the 120H. I will take some better pictures once i have the tank, etc.[/B]









Please let me know what you think of it

Here is a view from my living room on where the tank is going to go, Darn I think a 180P will fit better in that spot, but i should not get ahead of my self

Left side is really good. Try to tweak the right side to complement the left better.

absolutely, i am making another one for the 60P, it helps to own a custom furniture and cabinet shop. I will gladly build stands for whom ever needs one. They are just not a budget stand. I can also help with the design if need be. what you do not see on this stand is that it can be leveled with out the use of shims, it has 6 leveling legs, that i also built, that can handle over 600 pounds each.
