36 gallon bow front

Hi all, I am new to the forum been lurking for the past month to get ideas. There is a wealth of knowledge on this forum that has been very useful to me. I feel that I am ready to make mistakes and learn and wanted to use you guys for guidance. I am setting up a 36 gallon bowfront I started scaping tonight, for substrate I am dirting the tank mixed with fluorite and capping it with black blasting grit. Here is a shot from tonight I didn't get to the cap yet as it got late. The mounds are lava rock and the light came with the purchase my 30 inch 24/7 se is in the mail. Got an awesome deal on seiryu got a big 15 pound piece for $30 that I broke up into pieces.

So far by your pictures it looks right on track. glad you did background research before you got this started, most people don't do that.

Rate my scape please. Just scared tonight let me know what you think. Don't mind the caves, the one species that I know I will be keeping is apistogramma so I got the caves for them. I was trying to incorporate sight breaks in the scape to allow for separate territories that thought kind of steered my approach to the it.
