Looks really good, wow. It'll look better if you have plants to soften the edges where the rocks are stuck into the soil, but it looks amazing for now. What's the plan? Stems, iwagumi?

iwagumi and back ground for stem plants, as you can see in my art pic of how the plants will fill in, the iwagumi style looks good so far, i love stem plants, i am going to fill in heavy on the right side with mixture of red and green stems, bit on the left side too.

Very nice tank. I would move it away from the wibdow blinds or replace them with dark brown wooden blinds as ATM they are a bit distracting to me.
Nevertheless it's avery well designed tank. Can't wait tp see it once the plants have grown in.

yep that's an ohko stone, am planning on using HC or UG, if not those then Glosso, but most likely HC.

its absolutely beautiful. great job

i would lower the stone on the right just a tad. so that you had one "main stone" and one "secondary stone"

just an inch or so.

Great scape. I'll pass on the stems and perhaps go with e.vivipara if you can find it.

Since you asked for suggestions. It's a very nice setup, but the two main stones are too similar in size and position as well as the supporting stones directly underneath and gives it a too symmetrical form (from the pic anyway). I would also lessen the exposed rock on the far right since it distracts from the main focal area. Just my opinion from what I see.
