I guess I'm one of the few that preferred the second arrangement. To me it seems more dynamic, where as the first is pretty static & a bit "klunky"?
Just my preference, but I like the eye to be drawn along a line or vista. If it were my tank, I'd even lay the smaller rock down somehow to get a bit lower angle and maybe add a couple more smallish rocks to even out the mass on that side if it looks too unbalanced.

Any updates on this beauty?
Sure am enjoying this thread so far
I strongly believe I want to grow out the plants like you did with your tasnk.

|Couesfanatic||did you trim it yet?|

|ThatGuyWithTheFish||Last update before Thanksgiving break. HC carpet is almost entirely filled in, just waiting another month or so to trim and have it even out. I'm having quite a bit of algae, so I think I'll get an oto or two and an amano shrimp to help out a bit. Will leave it for almost a week unattended so I hope everything will work out!|

Things are going well. I had a bit of a problem where some leaves in an area would yellow and melt, probably caused by too little CO2/ferts. IDK what to think about it, maybe I should start dosing nitrates.
My diffuser got so dirty and covered and algae that I cleaned it for the first time. The superge worked very well, though not completely, though that is probably because I waited too long to clean it. My filter pipes are sparkling, most likely because I have no fish in it as of yet.
Here's the latest pic. Sometimes I feel bored of the scape and want something more, though it might contradict my theme of a meadow. Maybe rotala behind the rock? Downoi in the corner?

Looks great! Keep the updates coming.
Interested to see how it develops.
I'm getting closer to setting up a 60P ADA tank as well.
It's been a few years since I've had a planted tank, so the anticipation is overwhelming!

Got around to testing water conditions:
pH: w/ CO2 6.6, w/o CO2 7.6
GH: ? (not sure if test kit is working)
Of course this is all without RO water. I could buy 5 gallons for a few bucks and that will last me 2 weeks.
