I just planted this tank 2 weeks ago. I'm really happy with how the plants look. I was thinking of adding some driftwood, I'm open to suggestions and please let me know what you think of the tank, good and bad
looks good! I would highly recommend getting driftwood, it will make it more natural, and I would get rid the skull if it was me...maybe also getting some smaller fore ground plants rather then just having huge plants..thats just my two cents!
Yes, I agree. I would love to add some driftwood. I was going with an amazon themed tank. I just put some peat in the filter to get the black water look. I have the skull there as sort of a place holder for the drift wood. I was thinking either thin branches or a stump. As for a fore ground plant, I would like something that carpets, any suggestions?
I prefer driftwood/rocks for a natural look, but it still looks good. If you really like the skull, I would wiggle it down into the substrate more and maybe attach some java fern/annubias/moss to make it look like it has been laying in the bottom of a river for a while.
I would contact plantbrain (Tom Barr) here on TPT. he'll send you a box of random ones you can piece together branches or look at this thread by hydrophyte here on TPT, he has pics of the ones he has or you can pm and ask for something specific.
Here is the link to the post here on TPT. Link
It would be easier to see the driftwood, I'm assuming manzanita, in a picture out of the tank to have a suggestion. It is one piece correct? If you had multiple pieces of gnarled curvy branches you could have made a type of mangrove, Witt the wood weaving inand out of the plants with a bit of moss attached to them.
It's three pieces. I actually got a whole box of it. these are the thinest pieces, the others are thicker. I'm getting some angelfish soon and I'm not sure how big they are so I didn't want to over crowd the tank with drift wood. But I do like that idea
