The Wood and Rock placement on the right hand side in post #19 is AWESOME!!! The wood all on the left looks great too, BUT you loose the awesome shape of the right hand piece when done like that! Can't wait to see the new piece of wood!!!
I agree with the soil looks WAY TOO DEEP!!! When looking at Amano's setups his Aqua Soil is only about 2" deep in the front! SO I would remove at least a inch or 2 from the very front of the glass, then slope the rest to the back while creating a "mounding" look where the wood is sitting.
ANYWAY this is a AWESOME BUILD, and I am enjoying seeing all of the high end stuff you are using! SUBSCRIBED 4 SURE!!!
