Hi all,

I'm new to the hobby and was inspired by some of the wonderful tanks here and on YouTube.
I wanted to share what my attempt at an aquascape on my 60x30x30 cm tank and get your thoughts on how to improve it and some advice on filter inlet/outlet placement.

I am planning to out sand in the front, leading to the point to the middle/rear area, hence why I've put the filter floss to form a barrier of sorts.

However one problem I have is with my filter inlet, the top of it goes off the edge of the picture as I can't physically put it in lower without plonking it into the substrate:

Any tips on what I can do with the inlet pipe? I was thinking making a "hole" in the substrate to allow the inlet in - I was planning to get an inlet with surface skimmer which is pretty much the same size as my current one, would that work?

Any feedback on the Scape is welcome, thanks :)

Thanks for the suggestion, but my replacement inlet is a stainless steel one - prefer the look of them and want the surface skimmer version which doesn't come in a "smaller" form
