Some scapes look better dry ... but then again if you don't put water, it's just another lizard tank LOL.

Two main pieces of wood I weight down with rocks and the rest of the wood are tighten with wire.
Filled with water, no problem so far.

I have no idea what type of rocks are this, I found them in the bog pile next to the road.
Looks like gray granite to me.

hi, it looks great! one small tweak that might look neat is moving some of the driftwood on the right, so that there is more of an open space between the two rock groupings. you already have somewhat of a path between them with the way the substrate looks, and that would just bring that out more. enjoy it!

55 gallon planted with a pair of Apistogramma cacatuoides, praecox rainbowfish, bristlenose plecos, neon tetras, australe orange killifish, amano shrimp, & bamboo shrimp. Dwarf baby tears, dwarf sag, Amazon sword, guppy grass, moss, java fern, anubias, & several crypts.

Beginning to look real sweet - keep it up - it can be awesome-looking with a little time & some fine-tuning to your taste.

I really like the scape! You're off to a great start!

I'm looking forward to following your tank and seeing the plants fill in.

I don't want this to seem like a bash on your planting, because it's not, but I almost think I like the tank better without the plants. Take it as a complement towards your hard scape design. What fish are you planning to put in?
