Hiya - just starting out with aquascaping, trying to keep to a sensible budget (initially, at least!), so not C02 straight off the bat. You can obviously muck around for weeks with hardscaping, but you have to stop somewhere and start with the rest, right? So...any thoughts on any humongous mistakes that are being made here? My tank is 60X50X40cm, running off an Eheim Ecco 2232 filter. 36W Nemo lights. LONG term plans call for C02, but not right now. Thanks!

The slope on the right might start sliding when wet, what planting do you have in mind? I do like the look of it already :)

Thanks Wolf6! So, the slope on BOTH sides might well slide down (the left hand side is about the same height)? Thanks for the heads up. At the back I was looking for a curtain of long tall grass type plants (no idea what they might be called - still learning) or something like that. Living in the tropics (Brazil) allows for possibly some more exotic types of plants that are local, but I have to see what the shop has available or can get for me. Appreciate the feedback.

Hey Dougbraz, nice hardscape! Have you tried set up obliquely the left side back stone to pointing the left corner? I m just wondering, how it looks like if that stone is a bit higher. But I like this way too

Thanks Yanee - yes I have tried moving it about a bit and have settled on this - so far...let's see when the plants come - things may change!
