I actually really like this scape!!! But, with plants in there, those pieces of wood at the bottom will get lost very quickly. Unless you dont plan on having any plants there but I think you do. Maybe only HC in that area would show up if even.

I think the scape could be improved. you can layer the rock one on top of the other. place two or three rocks close together not spread out. the wood that is laying flat on the soil can be adjusted to look like roots, like the one on the left. but group them together not spread out like you have them. I think you are close to making it look natural.

Alright, a couple of tweaks and I'll really feel like I'm almost there! I'm going to re-boil the wood today when I get home, and if it goes quickly enough, I'm going to plant tonight. The stand is DONE, but I think planting tomorrow would be a better idea because I'll have more time. (no school the next day)

$320 for the tank, and $200 for everything else.

Ok, all the plants are here, and I'm making a stop up to my LPS now to pick up a load of HC. Tonight is going to be a late night, I'm planting and filling baby!! I've been waiting 2 years for this day!! Anything I should pick up while im there besides some purigen? I have an $80 credit...

$320 for the tank? shipped? no way... and $200 for everything else? the lily pipes alone cost nearly $200 :P I guess you didn't calculate those because they were "gifts"

from what I saw, I thought you spent at least $1K, if not more.

well for EVERYTHING I spent about 1.4k, but the tank was 200 plus 120 for shipping. the lilypipes were a gift, and the aquasoil and ferts costed about 120 and 80 for the zebra stone. I probably spent around 600 on ADA merch. I'm at the lps now, anything I should get? this is from my iPhone btw.
