I haven't flooded the tank yet, so I don't have to worry about that yet. I'd like to have everything scaped how I want it before adding any water, so I don't have to worry about making a mess if I move plants around.

I made a 'hill' by filling pantyhose kneehighs with expanded clay balls and Eheim filter media balls and arranging them on the base of the tank - then laying in substrate. They can't be compressed.

And +1 on offcenter. Then again, maybe you will want to go with manzanita. I haven't seen any scapes that mix manzanita and mopani that I like, but I am sure it is possible.
OMG. I thought the same thing. Photo "C" looks like Godzilla. And I'm a big fan.

maybe turn the Mananzita around where the branchy pieces are reaching up the hill instead of going down it. I think that would look great, then you could plant between the branches and have anchor spots if you need it for the plants on that side of the hill. Also will break up the central focus of the tank and make it not so uniform from the middle
