I love the rocks - my only thought it that you might shift the "V" focal point to the right or left to meet the golden ratio.

Is that Lava rock? It does look like some really cool mountains which should contrast nicely with your frosted background.

Agreed. Unfortunately they're so large there ain't much moving allowed. The left side is just 2 rocks: a very large vertical one against the glass, and a smaller 8" to 9" rock that fits perfectly next to/behind that. I have a lot more soil to add to the backside of the tank, and hopefully that'll skew (and widen) the V a little. Depending on how it looks at that point, I may be able to move the 2nd to middle right rock up and further left w/ more soil too. Anyway, point is, I'm aware and it's still my main qualm w/ the layout. But it won't happen until I start breaking down my 29g and recoup that soil. Hopefully next week.

Edit: yes, all lava rock.
