I like the hardscape except for the two stones front and center. Everything else looks natural and those two look like planted sentries. The second try is better because they are slightly more subtle but they still look artificial to me. What do they look like pushed to the back? How about connected to the other piles? I suspect plant growth will be hiding lots of the rocks anyway.
The plastic grid stuff is known as egg crate. Not sure where you get it, but I thought folks put it beneath the substrate to keep the substrate from creeping around. Holds it in place.
Do those white spots on the back near center need paint or are the plants going to completely cover them or what?
I think you are going to have way too many plants, especially the stems, but I gotta say, despite my quibbles above, THIS TANK IS GOING TO BE AWESOME!
