saintly said:firstly, can i say it was nice to meet you wayne at the ukaps meet.
ok, for me i'd try to make more of an island with the stones making up the base. thats not to say what youve done is wrong BTW...its not!.ultimately, it depends on the planting scheme whether certain arrangements work. id maybe push the whole thing back a tad?...it lacks that sense of depth IMO....unless of course you plan on stuffing the back with plants. remember you dont need acres of room at the back for stems as the bulk will be at the upper 50%...if that makes sense?
also maybe adjust the height of the 3 main branches as there on a similar plane.
just remember wayne, a good planting scheme will change everything.
Ed Seeley said:I like the wood, though the far left piece looks a little different from the others, but that could just be the way it looks in the photos.
As to the rocks I think it might look better if the larger rocks are in the centre with the smaller rocks looking they've broken away from the main parts, a bit like the island idea Mark said. Good job though.
What are the plans for the planting?
Thomas McMillan said:It looks a bit...weird to me. I think it would definately be better if you went for a more island scape, e.g. the wood positioned how it is, but more central and together, rocks holding them in place on top of and around the base
Also, as has been said, the left piece is kind of distracting because it looks different from the others, but it might just be the photo. You could always overcome this by covering the wood with moss, but once the tank is full of water this might not be an issue. Also, the large clump of wood far right is distracting, because it's too upright and stands out too much ATM i think but I don't think it'll be an issue once plants are in
