Personally I liked the first hardscape better, but otherwise it looks good. How long has it taken the hc to fill in?

hmmz i had the hc for like 2 weeks, oh and the first hardscape was too big on the left (meaning the rock blocked all the light behind it and it hung over so some places didnt get light) other than that i did like it. more UG will be added and it will be a mix of UG and HC (UG in left and right sides)
i might do a rescape on my 29g tank as well

The E. vesuvius is interesting. I rarely see it used in scapes. And of course, the erio is gorgeous here.

id move the erio backwards, so its right in front of the rock. maybe add some hairgrass near the other rock.
