Not different rocks, but purchase the same type of rocks, but with different sizes. That might help create more possibilities and options to create more interesting scapes.

It's good, but I feel like there's a better arrangement, try moving and tilting the stones more horizontally than vertically. I think you could create a slope of a mountain with the rocks you have...

I think adding Blyxa between the rocks will cover them up since it can grow up to 6 inches in height, so I think you should buy a different plant, perhaps dwarf sag? Helanthium Tenellum is one of my...

So many options! Throughout all of your scapes you've posted, they seem to lack a single prominent rock which makes it hard to create a focal point. They also seem to lack direction like in option 7,...

I like the prominent rock on the left, but the overall scape lacks direction. Instead of making the rocks on the right and left side face opposite directions, I recommend you slant the rocks in a...

Love the driftwood, but the rocks with different textures and different colors make the scape look unnatural. The rocks all being close to 90 degrees also makes it seem a bit unnatural. Sorry if this...
