New tank build

Here is the very start of my new tank, simple filtration, soon to add anubias and cryptocerne. Input?

I like the rock wall/column! Did you glue it together or is it just stacked?

Thanks! It is bonded using aquarium sealant, I did not use the rule of 1/3 (golden rule) but in retrospect I wish I had, and I originally planned too, but as I started building, keeping stuff from falling while drying was quite the job.

I am existed, and I plan on using other plants in addition to the saururus that will grow up out of the tank.

Neat idea. Is the rock formation + plants the filtration? That's becoming a very popular way to filter large ponds. I was on a pond tour earlier this year, and many pond builders are pumping the pond water through layers of gravel, rock and boulders planted at the top with bog plants.

I never thought about the rocks being a filter aid but that makes sense. I need to get a filter to put behind the rock formation.
