Lastly, you might consider letting the soil behind the mountain on the left continue to rise toward the back of the tank (pushing a few of the stones towards the back as well so the mountain appears behind the wood portal). This would help improve the perspective. If possible, move/adjust the intake(?) in that corner to allow the deeper soil.
I still don't like the LHS that high. Maybe it's because the rocks are looking so 'white' but it's just a big focus puller in my opinion an detracts from the beautiful texture and movement the wood provides.
