The rescape looks good! One of the things I love about aquariums is watching the way good tanks evolve around the creatures that live in them. When the owner is considerate enough to notice and respond to the little things, the overall health and happiness of the animals that live there is obvious, and can be seen in a big way! Good work!
It's not really that deep to be honest. I'll figure out something eventually however I will no longer use fishing line. Apparently the gouramis tore up one of my microswords. I had used fishing line tied to a rock to keep that down. The female Senegalus ended up getting that right behind her neck and it tightened around her middle while she struggled to get it off.
Thankfully I noticed what had happened and between my friend and I we caught her, put her in a bucket, and cut the line loose. She seems to be fine now, she's swimming normally.
