Rescape -- using "Scape it" to plan

Hi all!

Here is my current tank (a week or so ago):

Proposed re-scape:

In the Scape It, they didn't have the Limnophila Aromatica, so I put it as an H'Ra.

I am trying to make it so that when you walk into the room (you come in on the left -- when viewing the tank), you see a carpet of S-repens (just because that's what I have for now) and then you have crypts kind of blending it upwards, then after that some stems that follow the main fern and wood up to the top of the tank where I will place the mini butterfly so that it has much more light. I am also going to change out the spray into a sump with the output coming from the "right" so then it will blow CO2 all down the "new front".

Ironically, I don't think the rescape looks as good hah!

I guess what I am trying to achieve is a triangular shape -- and I can hide my hardware behind the plants. I have a constraint that I can't "get rid" of my hardwood with epiphytes ... yet.

This photo may give an idea of general shape of the hardwood:

If I actually want the sloping downwards, then I will have to hone in on my trimming skills - but one step at a time.

Next weekend I will be doing the rescape -- anyone have any advice for plant positioning (based on my current stock)?

Well ... 14 hours and prep + clean up to boot later ... and it looks nothing like I planned.

Let's see what happens.


An important note: I had it all nice and levelled out -- then I added water and the dirt had a landslide and flooded and covered all of my plants at the front ... so it will stay crooked. :)

Learned for next time.

Cheers,
Josh
