Opinions much appreciated guys.
Some other possibilities
One other thought was to bank the soil on the left hand side and then lay the rock work around that slope.
[ATTACH] Thanks Seige and TBRO.

Well that’s something I can possibly look forward to them!
I may turn up the co2 as a preventative step based on your earlier post.

Rightly or wrongly I’ve not worried about full EI dosing (until now!) as I understood that over doing ferts within acceptable perameters is to...

So which pH pen gets the nod!
Very interesting tangent.
I suppose that would work provided it is consistently inaccurate!

Your reply confirms what I thought the position would be.
I can now look forward to trying some hardscapping this weekend.
I’ve acquired Amazonia as my substrate. I’ve read In a number of forums here that you can plant in this straight away if you have a mature filter....
Where do you go locally for your aquascaping needs?
I now think that I'm leaning toward a nutritious substrate such as Amazonia or the Tropica aquarium soil.
I’ve seen manado. Does this have the same performance benefits of the Africans?
