The light looks a little blue. Do you know the Kelvin rating?

Cool... but you should change the title to "Patience is a Virtue" so no one thinks you are talking about sick people...

I like the placement of the back 2 rocks. It's the one in the front and center that seems...off. keep the back 2 where they are and change the location of the small rock.

that rock in the picture is schwweet! I'm not feelin' the seiryu stone tough, a bit too rounded for the picture you're modeling it after. I would give it a quick chisel to sharpen it up a bit, just my opinion.

off topic but just curious to how those rock formed to end up being so white! Is this a common occurrence?

my inspirational photo i guess?
its formed throusands of years ago when the landscape was slate, then moulten "rock" would flow down hill and fill up the gaps

over time, the eroision from the sea will slowly wear away the slate as its the softer rock, and then your left with that landscape, im not sure what its called but i can ask my geography teacher if you would like.

Nice looking scape.

For the filter, why not a Red Sea/Azoo nano filter? They are about $12-13 here in the U.S. However, I'm not sure if stores carry them in England.
