Should I stick with all rock or swap out the middle stones with the driftwood? I'm going high tech with this one and was thinking a carpet of Monte Carlo. Thoughts?

I think swapping the center rock for driftwood will look great! It's a really interesting piece of wood! What's your stocking plan? I admire the hardscape so far and the carpet would look so lovely !

Rescaped a bit and added some dwarf sag, crypts and a couple others generously donated by some friends in the hobby. CO2 is running 2 bps and also got my Finnex 24/7 set up yesterday. Did a 60% water change to clear the water up from the driftwood tannins. Ammonia still at 1.5ppm so the cycle has a ways to go. We'll see where is at at the end of the week. Overall I'm pretty happy with how its coming along.

fyi: 2bps is not going to add much co2 to the tank. Also i would use a ph pen to measure ph drop as a good indication as to how much ph you are adding.
