Newest Cichlid Scape

So I had to dig out 3 cichlids that were holding eggs, which means everything must come out of the tank, literally every last rock. This is the newest creation, I know the fake plants look bad but I wanted to mix some colour up in it.

You've done a great job with that set up! I hate that you keep having to change stuff around but it always turns out awesome!

Looks great! Nice and natural looking. Just are you cleaning out the debris that accumulates between the rocks? Turkey baster method?
