Wow, a 55 looks a lot bigger with fish that size...

The rockwork looks great, although cleaning it will be a nightmare. 😁

What stock are looking at?

Looks good a power head will help with poop settling between the rock work

Yes if you add a power head or wave maker it will give current to the water and flush out the poop which settles in the rocks.
