Aquascaping - did I do okay?

hey guys,

after a few years I'm getting back into the hobby with a Aqua Medic 500xd
The dimensions are 49 inches wide, 25,6 inches deep and 21,6 inches high.

I bought dry Caribsea life rock and scaped something up - highest point of the aquascape sits at about 11 inches.

Here is a small video, which should be uploaded in a couple of minutes:

my phone is pretty crappy

thank you

Best regards,

Love it! Consider adding one live rock to seed the life rocks. This will help speed up the cycle and add biodiversity.

As many naturalists and environmentalists have suggested, we should set aside our arrogance,
our desire to conquer and control everything, and walk hand in hand with Mother Nature. -Walter Adey

Yea will think about some pieces of rock in the sump. Not really keen on adding them to the display directly..too much risk of pests getting in. Now I just have to wait for the PVC to arrive and my Clarisea SK3000..try to keep it clean this time around

Ordered 40lbs of Caribsea shapes, and 40lbs of the normal rock. Next time I would choose 40lbs shapes, 20lbs rock and maybe 20lbs from Real Reef Rock to add some plates.

Best regards,
