Talking 75 rescape .. the rockscape

Hey guys, as most of you know from buying plants from me, I have sold all my plants to start over.

I started this scape with a core selection of local rocks. Its a modified Iwagumi scape, with the one dominate rock on the right. However, plant selection will not be limited as in a true Iwagumi style. I am currently growing HC cuba emersed, hope that goes well.

Specs

Tank size: 75 gallons
substrate: nicco aquasoil with fertilizer pellets
lights: 2x150mh at 8000k
CO2: pressurized, but not currently on, but about to make inlet to my external dyi heater.
filtration: looking for eheim pro 2... trying to sell eheim 2215
currently misting with NPK solution every day

Feedback on rock formation of advice on emerssion is def welcomed

I'm sorry, but I can't quite see if you have a cover on the tank?
I don't mean to sound like I know this better than you, just wondering if you forgot.
Seran Wrap does the job.

yeah the tank is def saran wrapped... I leave a few holes for it to exchange air. I open it up to mist ... only. As of right now, most of the plants are slightly submersed, and Im just taking outa bit of water at a time to get them use to being emmersed. I should have water just above the substrate by this weekend.

Thanks cid, the the HC is starting to grow emmersed shoots now.. I'll wait a bit longer until the next set of pics. Current photoperiod is 12 hours. What do u guys think about the time period.. too much.. I hear emmersed setup can take on more photoperiod bc no water and decrease in potential algae.?
