right, il keep this brief.

tank: 40L 50cm (dont know the name, just an old tank :lol: )
lighting: 2x 11w clip ons
filtration: (havent decided yet, will update this, still after an external of about 500-1000lph)
substrate: powdered Akadama on the very bottom with a sprinkiling of osmocote. then jbl aqua basis topped off with some akadama (not powdered) but sived so the lumps are smaller.

right, this is my first ever aquascape and will be my forst ever planted tank, apart from the odd sword shoved in the gravel in my main tank!

can i have your opinions on this: (sorry about the poor pictures)

Cool! I'm not that good with rock positioning, but it seems to me that the outer two are pointing inwards towards the middle one... which doesn't quite look right. They're also too spaced out like aaron said.

Didn't notice at first look but you're right. Maybe it's fossil, looks like it was a happy face though!

confusing time now :)
For the laef stone, the standing up position in the first 2 is best, just more the rock up close to it, but try lyeing the right rock down so it is nice and low, i think that may work :)
