now that you pointed that out you are right. i think if you pulled that rock that is closest to the middle (left side) and put it all the way to the left at the base of that wood piece it would look awesome.

I really think the largest rock should be there and then cascade with the heights

Sick set up you got started there! I'm not sure if you were wanting to put moss on the wood or not, but I usually find it easier to do before placement of the wood- especially on really branchy pieces.
Maybe some needle-leaf would look good back there?
Great suggestion and thanks for the complement. I might just wait to finalize the hardscape until after the plants get here so that I can connect moss and ferns to the driftwood easier. And yes, I'm definitely going for that "thicket" look on the right so needle leaf java fern will be involved.

Looks great. Can't wait to see more pictures.
Thanks! Pics will be coming in a couple of weeks...this is a slow meticulous endeavor.

Thanks...I highly recommend dsdrifter for similar pieces. Thanks for subscribing!

Yes I agree, that's due to the shortage of rock I mentioned earlier. I'm hoping to score on some pieces like the rock in the front.

Where's "there"? In the middle where the medium sized rock is? I think the larger rock would look out of place being in the front but I may play around with it and try it there. It could give it scale...

Thanks man...I've read your posts on other's journals and your always encouraging. I'm about to get some more stone then it will be a few more weeks until I plant. I'll post pics of the rocks in the scape when I get them.

Setup looks great so far. As per ur last sketch guess you r planning on c. Helferi on left? Won't they be a little to tall for the edge concept you are creating?

Is this another name for GHG? I'm thinking about using some of that tall wispy grass on the far back left and right to lean over the void. The void space that you can see on my sketch is to simulate the stream valley going off into the distance.

From Lowes, I just had them cut some plexi-glass sheets the right length.

Ahem. Updates? I am really itching to see this tank develop. That stand is sweet, by the way.

Without Algae, death of mankind would be inevitable.

Yea, I wish so badly I had updates, but my rock supplier has fallen off the face of the earth. He's agreed to sponser my tank which is great news because his supplies some of the most beautiful rock I've ever seen but it's been three weeks and no word from him. If it continues I'll have to go the ADA route for my rock which I think has less potential than this guys stuff and which is why I'm giving him as much time as I can for him to return my e-mails/texts. Thanks again though for your interest in this project, you probably know how encouraging it is when people ask for updates. I will be waiting one more week for him to get back to me and then post what ADA rock I will go with which may have to include a rescape.
