added more plants!

Ok I took some of everyone's advice and added more plants. I added some Java ferns in the right corner attaching it to my driftwood and some water wisteria and more hygrophillia too.

Tank looks good man.

I think there are some things that you could do to improve it though and this is only my opinion.

I think you should change the background, maybe to all black. I think that it distracts from the actual real elements (rocks, drift wood, plants) in the tank.

I think the tank looks a little unnatural because of the uniformity of the layout. Wisteria in both corners and exact middle and the way the rocks and drift wood sit. It all looks a bit staged, you know?

To make it look more natural, you might try making things less semetrical. http://aquariuminfo.org/ talks about this a bit. you should read through it, it might help.


Either way, I like the tank and it is better than what I got going on. Keep up the good work. Also can't wait to see your tank when you get more plants in there!

I agree with removing the background and going black. Was thinking about that myself. It would just be a pain right now with work and everything and moving the tank out out from the wall. But when I get some time I will do it. Anyways thanks for your opinion, any input helps.

Beautiful tank and Angels, im a big fan of Anubius and melon swords both are hearty and readily available. i like to use 3-4 variations of anubius in my tanks and with the wood you have it would look great attached at various location. but thats personal preferences, the tank is beautiful as is!
