Hi

Would welcome any feedback. Tank ea aquascaper 900, twin star lights, will have OASE 600t with inline co2.
looking to plant back and mid, and leave the front and right side open with Ada Colorado sand.

can tell you the heart was pumping lifting and moving the rocks around in there o_O

This is cool!

Does the little rock stand up? Then you have all the rocks lines (striations) going up in the same direction to the wooden focal point - just my 2 cents :D;)

It can do, thought it would look like it’s fallen from the face behind it. Will experiment though....

Id suggest the middle bit with the cut is too much in the middle of the tank. Perhaps move it to the right as you look at it. You donot want it in the middle.

experiment turnpning it around so you donot see the cut bit?

maybe stand one of the other pieces up, slightly in front to the right of it to give depth. The thinner wood behind.

👍😃

Hi assume you mean the 3rd rock from the right. Will turn it around as suggested, completely missed the cut bit lol

Thanks for the suggestions, made a few minor changes added sand and gravel to hide the floss. Plants picked up yesterday, prepping to plant later this morning.

plants are in! Full list

limnophila - back left
myriophyllum Guyana - back middle
rotala green - back right
crypts x10 across Mid level and front left
a few alternanthera reineckii mini front between rocks
monte carlo creeping across rocks to sand
bolbitis and a trident fern on wood
bucephalandra red on some of the branches
anubias nana under the ferns
hygrophila pinnatifida fern on the wood
coral moss which I’ll propagate and spread once it grows

fingers crossed no floaters once I put the water in.
