125 gallon tank!

Not really asking for advice or anything, just wanted to get some ideas on how to finish the tank! Here's a pic

Some of them are. I know! I'm having a really hard time finding something that would work. I was thinking plants?

Makes some caves with slates where the gaps are, I think that would give it a nice touch up

Move the wood off-center to one side, add some rocks to break up the open areas.
Here's a pic of my 125:

That's a good looking tank! I've never thought of using for anything other than a cichlid tank. Looks good though. Slate won't affect the ph?

Slate won't affect pH at all. I put some big pieces of malaysian and Mopani wood in my tank, and several large chunks of coral to buffer the pH. Took a few months and loads of carbon for the wood to stop turning the water dark. Stock is 3 red and 1 green severum, 5 silver dollars almost as big as the severums, 9 Colombian and 10 white (black) tetras, 8-9 kubotai botia's, about the same number of BN pleco's, a single Synodontis eupterus, a Macana zebra knife fish, and 4 recently added electric yellow Lab's. Pretty peaceful tank for the most part, though I'm keeping an eye on the green severum as it grows larger. The 3 reds (1m/2f, lost the other male last year) are bigger/older, and 2 seem to be more-or-less paired up but haven't spawned yet.
All the plants are plastic, the severums and silver dollars eat anything real. I occasionally toss in excess Salvinia and duckweed from other tanks.
