Only thing I would say is the big rock looks top heavy the way it's placed. Also what stone is that?

Love iwagumi scapes.

I honestly don't know, it seems to me like they are either seiryu or ryoh stones, if any reader knows I would love your opinion on it , I got them from a florist near my home, he had only monster size ones and believe it or not the 5 stones all came from one piece, I'm just afraid of breaking them down again. I do admit it's still quiet big but looks impressive to my eyes .

What do you guys think , should I keep this arrangement or try a different placement? Someone adviced me to move more sand to the back leaving one inch in the front and 3" on the back

Personally, I think the big rock is too big. But that's my opinion
