I'll be using the same tank.  Hopefully I can steal some ideas from you.  Good luck!

I’m not a fan of pvc foam. It gets everywhere and I think it soaks up water and becomes mush. But what do I know 🤷‍♂️
 

also I’m following your DIY build, if you need help or have questions don’t be shy to blow up my inbox or my build thread

Both options look good (nice start).  Although I kind of prefer the two rock option.  That gives you more open sand, open water, and access to the surrounding glass.  Maybe angle the left rock at a 45 (sort of a compromise between the two).
