A grassy meadow surrounding to show off your driftwood acquisition, it sounds like a plan to me. Uprooting those plants can be done without disturbing the substrate. That kind of planting might help keep the EC on top of the substrate and preserve the black bottom look of the tank.
I can't wait to see this driftwood!
Aquascape? I'm a crypt farmer.
It's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.
That IS an aquascape, it's titled "The Vacant Lot".
