Nice piece of wood Stacy. Unfortunately because of how snugly it fits, it would be hard to really move it around. Just have to pretty much work around it. I am sure you'll make something beautiful from it with your skills

I think "skills" might be a bit of an overstatement. lol. You're right though, it is a pretty tight fit so I don't have many options with the actual wood. I'm thinking maybe two islands of plants around where the wood touches and an empty area in the middle like it's a bridge. Hmm.

You see what I mean? That is EXACTLY what I had in mind + your "skills" it will be just beautiful

Guys should I trim my HC while dry start? It seems my HC is not spreading at all. Only growing thicker and taller...?

I've never done DSM, but I'd think you could trim it and then sprinkle the trimmings to help it fill in faster. Can't imagine it would hurt anything.

Finnex 36" FugeRay LED is coming out! I think I will get this fixture instead the Ray2. Should be good placed right on top of the tank.

I joined the club, GLA's sale at $59 for the 12 gallon long was too hard to pass up.
Will posted photos when I start designing, I'm loving the dimensions.

New to this forum and aquascaping; essentially my first post. Some friends just got me a 12 Long Mr. Aqua (Something i've been wanting for months now). I'm still moving things around, but as of now this is what I have:


Any suggestions? Should I keep the rocks centered or should I use the left or right side as the focal point?
