Is there a page for aquascaping suggetions?

I was wondering if there is any page where you could maybe enter your size of tank and plants you got and it would give you some type of aquascaping suggestions? Looked a little bit around, but dind't really find anything yet

That's what this forum is for. Most people who want help aquascaping will post a picture so we can give suggestions.

Your tank looks more like a regular planted tank than an aquascape.
And I see fake plants in there too, am I right?
I would change the background of the tank as well (black or white)
Keep in mind that what scape you are trying to create. Some example can be see from here:

Yes, right now it is more planted than an aquascape. And fake plants are the big ones left and right, that's it.

I am not sure if i should wait for more growth before i replant everything or do it as i wish. Was thinking about another background, guess i will do that then

If i would want another substrate, could i put that on top of the gravel or should i remove all the gravel first?

I find looking at the Tank Journals most helpful, especially tanks with similar dimensions. Then look up the Rule of Thirds, which is very easy to use.

I think you will find that a lot of truly beautiful tanks are composed of all natural materials. There are pretty significant exceptions though, like everything else.

The Green Machine out of the UK also has a lot of excellent videos and reading on their site. Amazing stuff.
