You've got some good hardscape there. I'm not sure it's placed in the best position, but I can't put my finger on it. I'm sure soomeone else will be along do give advice soon enough. I would say the rocks are a little too big though.

Is this your first aquascape or attempt at growing plants? You might want to go for easier plants such as Ferns and Anubias. Will the tank have C02 injection? What lighting? It might be a good idea to post this information so people know what plants to recommend depending on their needs. I do think a nice stem would look good at the back though, such as Rotala sp. 'Green'.

Hi

This tank isnt my first, but it will be my first with a planned aquascape and selection of plants if you know what i mean.

The co2 is a nutrafin fermentation set with easy carbo being added accordingly to back it up. Ive also got an 18 watt pl lamp for the lighting.

Im sorry, but what is hc?

Thanks

Will

Rate my aquascape...... it sounds like a tv show, probably hosted by graham Norton!!!! :lol:

right that out of my system, the rocks need seperating a little more, perhaps more around the base of the wood.

TGM are really very good, I am a total beginner and they have helped me to no end, plus they have lots of scapes to look at fro inspiration. Also, on their website you can search through their newsletters - they did one on layouts (golden ratios etc) that was pretty good and nice and simple, and you can access it on line for free, and sign up for future letters too.

Good luck with the scape, I know how hard it is starting out, as I am in the same boat!
