Nice scape, love the detail in the sand and gravel work. Looks so natural how you've mixed in the bigger pieces towards the wood and rocks.
Creates a great sense of scale.

Thank @Steve Buce started from scratch so need the filter to mature again as I had been getting loads of diatomes with this tank ever since i got it so low light and nice and slow this time think it needs a fern in the middle of the wood to give it some body maybe a trident or java need to have a look

I love this. You’d never think that this isn’t one piece of wood. It look so natural.
What combination of sand did you go with in the end. Looks great

@howanic I went with Hugo Kamishi Natural Fine Gravel and the Rio xingu peddles then a sprinkle of the la plate on top just to.lighten it a very little think it needs a bit more of the gravel towards the base of the wood to bring it together right in the front centre of the wood and a trident or java fern in the centre of the wood I'm.not sure about the tripartita might try it again when I do water change later it floated when planted so left.it out for now
