Hopefully Macclellan isn't driving right now because I'm sure he'd go into cardiac arrest upon me posting this
Got my stones from ADG today. Super nice rocks. Jeff did a great job picking out a nice assortment for me This driftwood will live on in my 40 gallon breeder- it's originally planned home.



I'm working on arranging the rocks right now.

There won't be any tall plants in front of the rocks.
The only thing that bothers me is the far left. Can't quite get that rock to fill in the space right. It looked good without a rock there, but the balance wasn't right. Any suggestions?

I think it looks nice like that...if you really wanted a suggestion then maybe move the 5 stones on the left side left about 1/2-1"...maybe it'll help fill out the left side a little bit

see if you can find another angle for it where it's brighter, placement looks good to me, the meshing and flow of colors maybe a tad off, but i think when water is in it will change the look anyhow...

The back left rock was wet, which was why the color seemed off.
