If your going to create a rock "wall appearance" I would suggest using it to create a height dynamic or section an area off, right now it just looks kinda like a white line.

What are the brown things? Coconut houses?

Turn off your flash. Add root tabs and get more DHG, and also get a light for it.
Hope that helps!

I have root tabs and/or flourish liquid ferts. I got a light fluorescent light today but it didn't fit my tank, so i returned it and i am gonna get another one, i wanted to do a little more research. 20 watt fluorescent should be enough? Also, i have DIY co2 I just have to add more of the mixture and make a new bottle, but I am very lazy.

I would change out the large sword plant for something with finer leaves. The big leaves I think throws off the scale of the decorations.

That is a good suggestion I never thought of that I just needed something large to cover empty space any plant suggestions?

Also new the white rocks were intended to be more of a walkway. I guess their intended purpose isn't noticeable. It made sense to be but I guess that's because i made it. Any notes on creating a pathway effect?

hmm i get what you're trying to do with the rock path, but they need to be buried a bit more so they don't dome over the substrate. and also as said above, not so straight a line. it also migh be fun to put the pagoda on a slope higher and to the back, and have the path lead to the front foreground. kinda like this:

Don't take pictures with a flash. That causes glaring and reflections off the glass

Ya i agree they stones should be buried more, and the slope is a good idea, i just might have to move the heater somewhere else. I also need to take care of this snail problem...
