I think you need more bigger stones. Try to raise the small stones up a little more. There won't be visible once your plants filled in. Anyway, awesome equipment!

Nice, did you use fishing line? I just ordered a Mini M and a Finnex Fugeray. Planning on hanging it just like that. How did you connect the light to the fishing line?

I think this is getting close to the final arrangement. I'm pretty happy with this. What do you think?

Yup, fishing line. I ended up cutting 2 wire coat hangers so that about half an inch stuck out on both sides. I just tied the fishing like the that. Nothing really complicated.

Nice work. Scape looks good. What plants are you going to go with?

HC carpet and probably Blyxa japonica background.

Pretty sure this will be the final hardscape. I'm going to leave it for a few days to make sure I'm happy with it, but so far I'm pretty pleased with how it looks.

So because I was bored and sitting here with my tablet PC, I decided to do this to get an idea what it might look like when it's planted. Lol.
