a word to the wise, your rocks look way to big for any root system to do well in. I relize you have dirt underneath but I wouldn't be surprised if you run into issues. usually 2mm diameter gravel does the trick,,,, even better yet to cap the dirst with sand =)

Nice tank!
however, I'm wondering about whether the cap is sufficient. have you tested your nitrates? sometimes the soil can leech nutrients when the cap isn't fine enough
