are you trying for an iwagumi feel? i'd spread the rocks on the left out more, everything looks really placed... i actually like the original scape better than the one you have now, but maybe that's just me.

I actually really liked the 1st one. I love that rock on the right in it. They both look good though.

Yea, I suppose you could say that. I don't have the right plants to make it look that good though. Just working with what I got. The removal of the smaller rocks was because I thought it looked cramped. I guess I could try spacing them all a little more.

Like that! Loving the rocks on the right again. But maybe tinker with the smaller of those two big ones on the left (that's a mouth-full) so that it's not so straight up and down?

Btw, are those rocks you found locally? I really love the color, wish we had some like that around here.

i like the new one! i agree with maybe tilting the big ones a bit, but it wouldn't be entirely necessary. it looks pretty darn good as is.

I'd go with the first picture, just add a few smaller rocks to the front and right of the large rock on the right.

Are you able to tilt the rocks a little downward? I feel the lines are way too straight

Looks sweet man! Really like those rocks and the geometric shapes.

I am thinking I need to create a sandbox tank or something for figuring out my upcoming scapes. Don't have an extra big tank to play around in...
