I remember seeing this tank in the aquascaping forum! I love the setup, you couldn't have found a more perfect piece of driftwood. Have you considered adding any rocks to the hardscape? It might be interesting to add something around the back right corner.

Looking forward to watching the tank develop, keep us posted.

Everything flows.

Thanks! I'm still considering adding some rocks on the right near the base of the driftwood but I think I'm going to start out with the hardscape as-is. I'm a couple hours from an ADA retailer so I might try to pick some up next time I'm in that area, maybe some Yamaha stone.
