it looks GREAT.

The only slight change i would make is to move the secondary rock (the smaller of the 2 large ones) back just a hair. maybe an inch if that. just so that the focal point stone stands out a tad more.

good luck

There are 2 types of people on this forum. Those that have algae, and those that lie and say they don't.

Nice hardscape man! Click the link in my signature for my 12g Long Iwagumi journal. I have a pretty in depth journal.

Key to DSM is to not over do it with the water in the substrate, you want it just below the substrate, don't allow it to pool up anywhere.
