I like the stones, and the way you have them placed.

You are going to have the ones in back placed on a slope?

Have you considered adding some smaller stones of the same material to the aquascape? I think that touch would really make it perfect.

I agree with Momotaro. I too like the placement, and I think that the overall effect would be complimented with a few smaller stones. The ones that you have look killer though. I think I might follow the same route. I like the unique rock placement.

The back is going to be slopped and where should I place smaller rocks?

The smaller stones should be placed around the larger stones. That will make the larger stones feel like a part of some sort of landscape, as opposed to being large entities in the middle of nowhere, so to speak.

Best advice for you, Turtlehead, would be to take a look at some of Amano's photos that feature rockscapes. You will see exactly what I mean. You'll pick it up quickly, I am sure!

It will look better if you would actually assemble them inside the tank, that way we know how it should look like.

It should absolutely have your own touch! it is your aquarium, not Amano's after all!

The suggestion was just to give illustration to my idea.

Looks awesome. What types of plants are you thinking?

It looks to me like it's screaming for a short carpet plant.
