New aquascaping- petrified wood

Opinions? Too much rock? This is a 75 gal 48x18, mostly Mbuna.

Not enough. You need smaller pieces to make dozens of crevices for the fish to swim through and hide in.

Will look ten 10 times better if you paint the back of the tank black. Fish will stand our much better too.

Yes, I didn’t think about the backdrop until it was full of water. And I tried breaking up the rocks a little more before I put in the tank. But apparently petrified wood is very hard and a sledge hammer didn’t even work.
