Yeah the pebbles are coming out. I wasn't sure how it was going to look. I don't like them either.Can i suggest taking one of the smaller stones from the back and smashing it up to use instead of the pebbles so they all match
I know there is something a little unnatural about the vertical piece on the right. It did slide forward a bit when I filled the tank so when I drain it to plant I am going to push it back. But it I'm going to keep it vertical. I have a vision of a pillar of epiphytes in mind.I would also consider trying to push back the top bit of the wood so it is against the back, this will mean the wood is less vertical in the scape, more like it has settled there of its own accord if you like.
My plan is to plant Bacopa Caroliniana in the back right corner. My understanding is it should grow under low light. Do you think that would work? I thought leaving a decent amount of space there would give me an area for a nice dense stem plant area.I would consider moving the large DW as far to the right as possible and increase the height of the substrate to the right/back behind/under the DW .
Thank you I like it as well.The DW is an excellent piece and must be shown to its best.
I will be adding substrate throughout the mid and background at the time of planting and will level of the front as well.I would prefer the Substrate to be higher another 10cm in the back RH corner at the moment everything is looking rather flat. Make sure across the front is an equal height for a better eye flow.
I'd ask you to keep in mind the tank will be heavily planted and a lot of what you see of the rocks will be behind the ground plants and epiphytes.Your rocks have plenty of character and if not careful they will dominate your Aquascape I would have prefered a brown colour.
We all have been there and, done that what I am doing is helping you to have better Aquascape and maybe stop any concerns along the way.This is my first aquascape so I know mistakes will be made.
@Keith GH your advice is not falling on deaf ears! I joined this group to learn and understand the art of Aquascaping. Please don't take my resistance as a disregard of your feedback. I have a vision for this scape and would like to stay as true to it as possible.We all have been there and, done that what I am doing is helping you to have better Aquascape and maybe stop any concerns along the way.
