Sweet tank. Looks great.

About your rocks, they look pretty cool. Random rocks can sometimes leach into the water column and raise your ph pretty dramatically. If you like the look, you can always test it with a drop of strong acid. If it starts bubbling, then you have a base which will leach. By the way, vinegar is too weak. Use something like muriatic acid (HCl) which you can get at home depot or lowes or any swimming pool supply store.

The tank is looking fantastic - the added anubias in the corner really pop, and the petite on the branch is perfect!

i think adding that second anubias on the right really helped fill it in nicely, tank looks great and seems to be coming along nicely.

Arrow Made some changes

Added a few more plants, I took out the piece of wood on the left and replaced it with another smaller, thicker. Here's how it looks as of right now...

Thanks for your help! I decided I didn't want to risk it and didn't end up using the rocks, the wood looks to be enough.
