 Looks  very  Cool.  Good  stuff.   Clapping  
 
 IMO,  it  would  have  looked  awesome  if  you  would  have  scattered  the  rocks  all  over  the  tank  (piled  on  top  of  another  to  form  cave  like  structure).  The  rocks  are  placed  on  top  of  the  gravel  ,  it  would  have  given  it  a  natural  feel  if  the  rocks  were  placed  1st  then  the  gravel  added  (making  it  a  part  of  the  bed).  These  are  just  my  observations.  No  offense  meant.
 
 The  rocks  look  real  good.   Thumb Up

 Replace  the  flowerhorn  with  some  mbuna  and  you  have  a  nice  lake  bed  tank.
 
 Love  the  scaping!

 if  u  want  your  FH  to  be  more  colorful,  change  the  background  to  a  more  colorful  one  
 and  do  add  some  pebbles  or  some  small  rocks  for  it  to  play  around  with

 Very  nice  rocky  set-up  bettaji.
 How  did  you  ensure  that  the  rocks  piled  on  each  other  stayed  the  same  way?  Did  you  glue  them  together  or  tie  it?  I  have  similar  rocks  but  i  am  afraid  to  pile  them,  due  to  the  fear  that  the  ones  at  the  top  might  fall.  I  don't  want  to  use  silicon  glue  as  well,  because  i  like  to  change  the  look  of  the  tank  periodically.

 Thank  you  Binesh,
 
 I  have  just  piled  these  rocks  one  on  top  of  other.  One  advantage  I  had  was  that  they  had  a  very  broad  base  so  they  were  very  stable.

 You  are  more  likely  to  find  smooth  and  rounded  rocks  on  the  river  bed.  To  me  the  fossilized  rocks  look  out  of  place.

 ^  I  agree  with  Beta.  Both  the  fossilized  rock  and  the  FH  look  artificial.
