Thinking of rescaping 10g -- any tips for decluttering? / advice?
Hi all. Here's my current 10g, low-tech tank. It's a bit of a mess in my opinion. Aquascaping is definitely my weakness and I want to get better!
Currently inside of it:
3x driftwood. 2 medium, 1 small.
1x ludwigia repens
3x anubias nana. 2 on wood, 1 on rock.
3x amazon sword
java fern rubber banded to driftwood.
1x bulb lily which isn't doing so well
1x crypt wendtii green with I had to split up into more than one section because it's getting so large
1 package of brazilian microsword scattered about
I should mention that I'm pretty restricted to whatever they have at petsmart/co.
I think I have too much going on and that's my issue. I really like scapes that are either minimal or are really grown and lush.
My substrate is all over the place too. Black sand, not slanted or anything. just kind of a semi-hilly mess.
Any ideas on what I could do to help fix it? Make it look neater I guess. was considering throwing all of my wood pieces together tightly somehow and having plants grow in between the nooks?
Should I add more swords toward the middle so I have more of a background?
