Broken pots

I just moved into my new apartment for the school year and wanted to set up my tank so I could have it all year.

I got the idea for this tank while I was working at a greenhouse this summer. There was an old pile of broken pots covered in weeds and I like the way the plants hid some parts and highlighted others.

-I'm using a light hood I built a couple of years ago. I have two 13 watt bulbs, one is a 5500k and the other is a 6700k. I want to make them both 6700k because I like the way they look better.
-I have eco-complete for the substrate.
-Some type of filter.........just from the pet store

I just got some HC from aquabids and I had it all set up and then my roomates gave me some Carny Goldfish they won at the state fair which dug up all the plants! haha

So I replanted everything and this is what it looks like!

I'm planning on getting some pearlweed to put in the back right corner in the next week

Looks like a neat idea. It reminds me of ruins or something. I'd like to see it when it fills in more
