It looks good! Maybe add a few plants to add some color but other than that I like it.

When did you set up the tank? Is it cycled yet if not than you have plenty of time to figure out what fish you want. I think some fire fish would look great.

Looks good. A lot of rock and looks stacked. If you could make some arches and allow flow to go through it that would lessen the amount of dead spots there would be (where detritus accumulates and causes nitrate problems). There are lots of options. Look on live aquaria.com or bluezooaquatics.com if you haven't already. A midas blenny and purple firefish would be awesome. Just stay away from damsels (very territorial)!

A table shrimp in a net or sock. Or if you want something that doesn't have such a foul smell you can get pure ammonia. They sell it at some hardware stores. Make sure it doesn't have a scent.
