Zlookup You'll get your arms wet when you end up putting in the plants. Consider leaving it half drained while you figure out your scape to allow for easier rescaping. If you are happy with it though, then leave it, but you will probably want to lower the water anyway for easier planting. Easier to move rocks when plants aren't in already then after so just be sure you are definitely satisfied with it. Changing your mind can cause a lot more work for yourself.

The new layout is so much better. I agree that it could still go further left. But it is so much better than it was.

My only other comment is that the stones on the side are all in a line. It spoils the fantastic looking peak you have. Try putting them on more of an angle or lean one on another one. Don't be afraid to have a gap especially near your peak. Your tank is big enough to have two peaks, one smaller than you have now but on the right. I'm sure you both like it, and that is what matters, but who's to say you won't like it more if you change it?


Hardscape can be quick or take months to get 'right' lol.

UDGags I think the peak needs to be 6" more to the left.

Take your dimensions and do this...

Looks good though! I bet it'll grow out to look pretty rad.
Never did figure out what it was until you pointed it out haha.

Hahaha, yea, I thought it was a fish or something.

secuono They are just saying to scooch the tall rock over a few inches and fill the gap it left with other rock[s].
You don't have to move it, dead center is fine, nothing wrong with it.

The rock is pretty center but i still like it. It looks pretty darn good.

I'm also wondering the same thing Msheresy is wondering about the fish lol.

Michael T I agree, move the tallest rock off center towards the left.
Looks nice otherwise. Nice choice of going with the dark sand.

I also saw his arm. I thought it was a mutant slug or something till I went to the next pic. Lol



@bryanmc

Did your gf know you were selling all her cichlids?!? Maybe I missed you saying that but if I came home and my bf had sold all mine even in just one tank, I would freak out!

Zlookup is spot on with his post. The rule of thirds is to make things look more natural. Is it something mandatory to follow? Absolutely not. You did an amazing job with the hardscape and I actually like how it looks as is. However, it will give a look of more natural following the rule is all. Again, it looks great! And if you love how it looks and so does your gf, then that is all that matters!
