You can check out the journal here
but I thought I'd post some pics and get some feedback here also.
Both tanks are 20 gallon longs, both will be low light and fairly low tech. First tank has black diamond blasting sand as substrate and will be home to a group of corydoras (either pandas or habrosus), probably some otos, and (big maybe) a betta. Thoughts were some open space to watch cory playtime and some nice planted areas for (hopeful) spawning.

Other tank will be home to some crystal red shrimp, so trying to keep it fairly simple. Want open space for shrimp watching, and will be lots of moss tied to wood. Ignore the floating pieces - some of it's being a bit stubborn.
Close up of rock formation:
Was trying to do an odd number of rocks, and I know the smaller one is different - contrast good or bad? Thought some fissidens on the bigger rock would look nice. Not completely sold on wood placement plus I'm still waiting for the other pieces to sink to see if they would work somewhere.
Anyway, I really am not that good at this kind of thing, so please be gentle, but I would love to hear some constructive criticism.
