I'm setting up 40 breeder NPT tank and will be using CO2 with it. I'm using Texas holey rock for the hardscape (because I like it, and it's free, lol). I'll be picking up the tank later this week, on PetSupplies Plus's aqueon sale.
So to get ready, I went through several different layouts of rock for the hardscape last night, and ended up with a three that I really like, but I thought I'd bounce them off of the community to get some other opinions. The cardboard background shows the size of the back the tank (the blue tape represents the top of the tank, and in the overhead shots, the front of the tank is just past the blue tape). Also, the cement tile that part of the hardscape is on will likely be replaced with some ceramic tile siliconed together or something like that.
Would you take a look at these pictures and give me your opinions? Here's the album:

and here's a key to the pictures:

My favorite is the last picture and the video. Sorry, but I didn't take an overhead shot of that one.
Thanks again for your thoughts.
