Stand is in place. Tank is set. Equipment at the ready.
Aquasoil is in.
Hardscape is slightly different, but worked from the first set up. What do you think? Is is better than the first? Would you make changes?
Thanks for looking!
Great! it looks so much better now you have substrate to work with.
First of all I like it how it is. But I will make suggestions of how I think you can do better.
At least I think you could do these things.
1)put the RHS rocks on more of a lean. This will both bring the largest pointy rock onto the third line but I think they would just look better. Either that or have none of them on and angle.
2)put the large rock second from the left on more of an angle to match the right. Stand the left most rock up too the same angle. The reason being the two groups are clashing rather than harmonising as they are. The small group of rocks at the right front is great and is a scape of it's own. I like that a lot.
3) add a bit more substrate at the back, or put some gravel under it if you don't want or have more aquasoil.
I have digitally messed around with the scape and done some swapping. obviously I can only do so much and it is not the same as I can do in my head but I'll show you anyway...
Ok, so with this one try and ignor that the rocks are not in perspective and such. but here I have moved the right rocks further to the right so the largest rock is 1/3 the distance from the right side of the tank. I think no matter what you do you should do this. You want to try and avoid your 'stream' being in the center of the tank. I also added a couple of rocks but I can't get them to look like I want (on an angle like the rest).
this one I was trying to swap the arrangement but couldn't get it to look right, I just posted it anyway.
Anyway, whatever you do it should look good.
