Well, the wood just laying there is a bit boring, if you piled them in the middle or up a corner, you could get some vals or other similar plants to grow up and through them. That would add interest.

I was actually thinking of just putting moss (flame,java) on the thicker pieces. Come to think of it I can see some plants growing between it, I just can't execute?

No pictures which show the light also. So what kind of light do you have on there ?
Lots of variety. Oops, I just noticed it started on the third month(March). That's good because after I looked
at all the pictures, it looked as if this had taken a month to create. But now I realize it took most of this year.
I was wondering how you got that much growth out of Pennywort in a month...LOL...

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...

I like the set up! It has an overgrown feel to it which is oddly relaxing. I guess the light must be strong because there is a lot of frogbite on the surface.

More pictures!

This how my tank was transformed from jungle to manageable all the fish i had to catch in oder to do the rescape.
Plants taken out for either tieing down or to get rid of.
How the tank looked a couple days into the rescape.
After removal of the hardscape (rocks). I found a few plants i forgotten i have lol.
FTS of the tank.
Pkg of plants given for a whole $10 now i can get some more ferts.
This had to go next Dwarf Sag.
Plants tied and tankward bound.
Left overs, plants to be squeezed in later i guess.
Drift wood was supposed to gonin the tank spent 2 weekends boiling but it was short periods so it was still floating at the end of the first weekend, second weekend boiled em for about 8 hrs straight an finally sank 3 pieces lol.
Beginning to reshape an rescape.
Added more substrate cap.
Finally done the fish that stayed (I couldn't catch) are ready to enjoy the new space.
A few more aclimated back home.
Then the rest!
Done untill next time i wanna change it up again LOL. Could be in a week, a month who knows only took me about 1 year to wanna rescape this beast. Tanks for those who followed this i do promise more to come with better updates than just big gaps in time my bad.
