Here's my 120g currently. I've finally gotten the large stump not to float by using zip ties and a rock. It still looks like it's floating, but it's not. You can see the giant danios, a platy or two, and my cardinals. The panda cories are in hiding.

Looks good so far!Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.
You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

What type of rock is that in your tank ? Is it real rock or aquarium decorations made to look like rocks ?If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

It's two fake rocks. I love them. I have another in my 55 gallon. They look pretty real, are very light weight, and are hollow. My Convict Cichlid LOVES her rock. She swims all through it. I'm not sure I like the fake grass at the bottom. It seems I either need loads more or to just take it all out.

That's an excellent size tank you have there. What are your longer term plans for it?
To me, the decor could be improved quite a bit. At the moment it looks like two separate tanks (rockwork doesn't aesthetically sit well against the substrate/wood). This is only my opinion so feel free to ignore my critique by the way. The root on the right is very nice and would make a good theme if you can get more pieces like it to balance the theme throughout the tank's length. The rockwork doesn't seem to fit though - it looks like it should be part of a marine set-up, or an African rift set-up. I'd get rid of it.
Have you tried real plants?

I think the grass on the far left, right near the rock, looks good, but the stuff further out should go (too fake). Maybe scatter some smaller, rounded rocks around the substrate (varied sizes) to unify the whole tank.
The rock work does look a little out of place with the wood, but you can make it work. More tall plants between/behind the rocks!20 gallon with a male betta, neons, glowlights, and red cherry shrimp. (work in progess) Recently added a few LIVE plants and driftwood, Woooohoooo!
