    So this is how I picture planting my new setup:
    scape-1.jpg
    ie
    Spiky moss and M.pteropus "narrow" on the wood, an Echinodorus uruguayensis in the corner behind the wood, staurogyne around the base of the wood and a hairgrass carpet

    However my quandry is this: the right hand side seems awful bare if I only have it as a hairgrass carpet, yet I'm a loss as what to do in the corner.

    So suggestions are what I'm after, bearing in mind I'm on a reasonably tight budget
    I'm a complete newbie when it comes to aquascaping, so be gentle with me, lol

    Thanks in advance
    Joe

    You could have a small clump or crypts or something. If you move your filter inlets and outlets to the opposide side it would therefore be hidden behind the plants and then you wouldn't need to add anything. It doesn't look bare to me it makes sense to have the lawn effect look like that.

    I agree with Neil. An area of just grass with fish swimming ove rit could work well. Sometimes less is more. If you feel like you need to add some interest you could always add clumps of E. acicularis or E. parvula.
