pretty good for a start. i would strongly suggest partially covering up the rocks. it creates a more dramatic effect as if the smaller rocks are actually one huge rock that is slowly being exposed by erosion. if you have a long but curved branch of driftwood. i would complete the arch that you already started.


it will allow for opportunity to create overhangs and grow stuff like mosses, buces, and ferns.

I would offer that in a small space it's very easy to add too much hard scape. I would remove the smallest driftwood branch in front.

I do like the suggestion of covering the rocks with maybe moss to soften them and give an aged look.

Looks good. Maybe make a slope coming from the back left corner of the tank?

looks alright... though i noticed that the lowest branch has been moved slightly in comparison to the shot before it, before you included plants. sounds nit-picky, but by doing that, you've sort of detracted from the arrangement because now it is more centered rather than elongated. however, if that's how you'd like your tank to look, that's fine too.
