I just think the LHS of this is flat and lacking. It tends to look like a separate layout because the orientation of the rocks is horizontal whereas the RHS is vertical.

Besides that when you plant you will loose so much rock.

I'm scaping a tank at the moment and I was pointed in the larger rock direction and it improved the tank no end. I reckon that you should at least try it. Take plenty of photos of this so you can go back to it if you change your mind.

But I think it's looking good mate.

The straight lines on the left look out of place, but it's still better than I could do.
It reminds me of outcrops in Kosciuszko national park or parts of Kangeroo Vally. Even parts of Scotland.
It's pretty cool.

Got fish? Go here...
