great stuff man. i personally like the rock look. if done right with the plants, it'll make the tank look even bigger than it really is! the wood is nice if you want the jungle look... but i lean toward the minimalist design approach or the experimental/scene design approach. I think the manzanita style is not as "wow". Just my thoughts. I'd go for the rocks. I'd make the whole look even more unbalanced though. Right now it just seems like you threw a bunch of rocks on either side til you ran out. Which unfortunately makes it look very planned. You want it to look natural. Rocks will stick out at different angles and be buried deep. Some will be leaning on others, etc. try to make it look like random placement. I think it would add a lot to the whole look once it's said and done because they say the hardscape is the heart of the aquascape (actually i don't know if they say that, but i believe that)
