6 Plain Rocks Iwagumi Challenge

Here's the challenge, Planted Tank. I have 6 plain, rather ugly rocks that are going into the Iwagumi. And you guys are going to help me design it.

The flora will be:
Glossostigma Elantoides
E. Montevidensis
E. Acicularis

The rules:
1.) You don't have to use all the rocks.
2.) You pick the position of the rocks. (I'll supply the pictures of the rocks from multiple angles [at least 3] and you tell me which rock, what angle and which sector of the tank)
3.) You pick the height and depth of the substrate at every sector.

Modified rules: If this doesn't pan out I'll just do the scape myself and you guys in-tank can modify it.

Yes, this was made as difficult as possible on purpose. Not only are your rock choices limited but you must use your mind to build the scape entirely.

Let's see what artistic ability you have PT!

(Pictures coming soon, I have some work I need to finish)

I will -try- to get everyone's ideas in by Saturday. The final decision will be that day as well. Scape suggestions closes at Sat 12am.

Specs: Tank floor is 30" x 12" and it's 12" high. Classic 20L.
Edit: To simply you can tell me which rocks you don't like and what position you like them in. You can ask me to bury it ask me to rotate it....

This is the floor.

The grids are 1" square.

Decided to use less pictures. Not enough time. And seemed superfluous.
