Without more specifics we will just have to take your word on it. Hard to tell from just a picture. I think you may want to set the tank upright though.

I would add a lot more rock. Live rock is your filter. You don't have enough to sustain a moderate bio load.

First of all i Would defiantly add some more live rock and when you say parameters are all ok can you specify test results so we understand your tank a bit better

The general consensus is between 1-1.5 lbs of rock per gallon.
