New setup, what do you guys think?

So this is my somewhat new tank.. About 7 months old.. Helpful criticism is definitely welcome.. Does it look too linear? Maybe need higher peaks or more backround plants?

The rock arch centered in the first and last pic seems a bit at odds to the scape. Everything else looks awesome. I think it's the lighter colored rock that jumps out at me looking at the tank.

What is that? a 40 gallon?

I like it. Like wkndracer said, the arch looks a little out of place. It would look great though IMO if you could replace it with a uniform type of stone.

yeah i agree with wkndracer, i don't think it needs to be moved or anything, it looks fine where it is, but if it was the roughly the same color as the other rocks it may look a bit more..'natural'? i suppose is the word i'm going for? Either way tho, your tank looks very nice! What kinda substrate is that?
