New scape on 55 gal

This is the new scape of my 55 gallon after a few months. The first pic is after two weeks. The foreground still needs to fill out, but it's getting there slowly. The Aquasoil is doing very well, sloped slightly to give some depth. Any comments/advice?

My camera is a point and shoot, and it doesn't look nearly as nice as it does in person so try to keep that in mind.

I like the way the plants continue the upward movement of the rocks.

Looks great! I love the rock placement, you did a good job with that. I also like how the substrate is sloped. It will look amazing when everything grows in.

Push your rocks into the gravel some
when just placed on top it looks a little artfcl.

Should fill in nice.

Thanks! The rocks are into the soil about 2" or so. In fact, I put a little soil down first then the rocks and then the rest of the soil. They are just big rocks. I put some pieces of planter mats on the bottom to protect the glass bottom. I must admit that I'm not much of a scaper but I am trying, and I hope that this works out. I'll add some new pics when it all fills in a little.
