I would stack the rock higher and make more caves with the rock for them to hide in. Maybe add a piece of driftwood.

Add more rocks, higher at one side than the other - maybe use some aquapudy to prevent rock slides.

Some more larger rocks, stacked to make caves and nice places to hide also a nice piece if driftwood would really make the tank pop.

What size tank? Here's my 75g African Cichlid tank.

Looks like a nice price if wood.You may have to weigh it down until it soaks up water but I think it will look great
