I like the set up of this tank. When I had my cons they loved to be in their clay pot but I didn't really like the way it looked. I always try to go for the more natural look, this is why I really like your setup now. It takes the focus away from the pot. My only concern is that if the pot is now behind the rest of the decor then you might not see much of your cons if they spend a lot of time back there in that pot.
