I like the look of the twigs reaching up to the top of the tank, especially if you'll be stocking something that will swim in the top portion! I'd flatten the rocks out though, they'd look a bit more natural and I'd be worried about them falling over as they are now.

Alternatively, you could arrange the rocks into a slope (from left to right) and flip the twig so that it's coming down like tree roots? That would be nice with bottom dwellers.

What plants will you be using? Some mosses could look great

Thank you for the feedback, I actually just got some plants in, Anubias Nana Petite, Moneywort and Monte Carlo. I will eventually be adding some moss to the driftwood.

This tank will be stocked with shrimp.
