ADA 60p Iwagumi- rescaped.

I recently got a great deal on a 60p with LED light, ehieim canister, malaya soil and a great batch of seiryu.
I originally scaped it in the "pathway/dried river" style with a natural valley on either side and a low lying flow through the middle. After two attempts at making this work for me, I scrapped it and started over. What I have now is exactly what I wanted. A more traditional "side flowing" scape with a perfect rythm throughout. I also broke down the hc into smaller pieces and will be trying DSM for the first time.
I will be using only two plants for this piece: HC and African micro swords.
I am planning on letting the hc fill in the gaps between the rocks and spread a few inches lower. I dont think I want a total "carpet" but who knows how I'll feel as it starts to spread.
I also added a back light behind the tank to give it a nice little sunset.
I will update as progress is (hopefully) made!
Please let me know what ya'll think!
