I am a fan of sand beds, so my opinion may be biased, HAHA!

got a few new things today in the mail! got my set of Pfertz and my new ehiem 2213 filter so no more noisy HOB filter that wasnt cycling the tank well. also moved out my blyxa from my 10g into this tank to add some texture difference and height to some of the areas of the tank should look nice once they fill out a little. also bumped up the co2 and light intensity a little bit to get some better growth

Looking good man.
I would slide the intake over behind the big rock and make it disappear

Even if the rock rests on the intake tube, it won't hurt it as long as the grill isn't blocked. The tank is looking awesome!

Your tank is looking great dude — very strong. And h4n's suggestion is solid.

i tried it there and it looked a little off. im trying to keep any height centered around the big rock to keep the focus on the rock.

Ahh I see! Sound good! Maybe try something else there. Something so it doesn't attract attention, but it makes it not empty and distracting to the eyes
