Mini M Hardscape Critique
 
Please help me hardscape my Mini M. This is the first scape that caught my attention. There will be a UG carpet and maybe some hair grass towards the back. I have about 100lbs of stone and plenty of time so please give me an honest opinion. As always pics never quite capture every detail.

Looks pretty good; you've obviously put some time into thinking about it. At most I'd rotate the rock farthest foreward a little bit clockwise; it's front face seems a bit obstructive the way it is now.

With rocks that vertical are you going to attach some moss to their surfaces?

I hadn't planned to but I'm certainly open to ideas. I was thinking a UG carpet all over and dwarf Hair Grass in the upper right corner. Do you have any pics of the moss or suggestions?

I was thinking of something along the lines of Fissidens fontanus (see profile http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/my..._fontanus.html).

That would be interesting up the backside of the rocks.

I liked the first layout, but I'm no expert.
