So, a few little changes.
First off, removed the second largest rock.. the one to the left of the big one, to make room for more stem plant development on the top of the "mountain."
Of the tiny bit of good rotala sp green stems I got in the shipment I cut them down and replanted two little patches. Hopefully this will grow out so I can get these nice green, well trimmed bushes that I can envision.
Two ideas... Thinking of adding the removed rock to the right side and putting some substrate behind it and putting another little rotala sp green bush over there to balance out the whole scape and give it more of a camyon look instead of the island look... This is still up in the air. I don't dislike it like it is. In this little phone sketch I dont have the rock but you get the idea.
Second idea... extend the substrate along the back wall out further into the sand and have the plants sloping towards the right wall... something like this.
As of now Im favoring the second idea in terms of less work, haha. But I tihnk both would look good, idk what I plan to do.
Thoughts? Opinions? Constructive criticism?
