You could try grouping a few rocks together to make a bigger rock. But yes, I agree, you need bigger stones. Did you say you were adding more substrate, because I think this will help somewhat, but you still need more scale in there.
I prefer #1, although the smaller rocks look like they've been placed deliberately evenly across the tank. Try moving them around a little so the gaps are different sizes or grouping them like JAmesM says and I think maybe the big rock on the left could do with moving to the left a bit more. I like the one on the right though.
Thanks for that. I have changed around a little again. This time I have raised the 2 Big rocks on the left up a lot higher.
The second picture shows the left to right view of the tank from the top downwards.
i think it looks quite good iv been looking into rock layouts recently and found this website which helped me quite abit im not sure if it will you as you seen to have got a good idea but you never know http://www.slipperylittlesuckers.com/article_Iwagumi.htm
this is for iwagumis but your layout is quite like one
hope it helps
I have seen this article and did find it usefull. The issue I am finding is trying to fit the rocks into the scape without crowding it while trying to give some structure given the shapes and textures that I have.
Hiya, your rocks are getting there but they are still very small for such a deep tank. I know what it's like when you've just payed for something and you want to get it used but i made the mistake of using rocks too small for the tank in my iwagumi Osaka and really regretted it. I rushed the whole scape TBH. My rocks were a similar size to yours and this is how they turned out once the plants had grown in, plus i had the substrate at 25cm at the back!
After that i decided that there was no messing for my next scape so i hit TGM hard! I got this "Blue Stone" thats the same as whats in their massive iwagumi. It's about Â£2.50 per KG and well worth it! That big rock is 40kgs
