1st 20L tank scape ideas

Hey everyone,

So its my first time ever owning a tank as large as the 20L. I have saved up a lot and got the Aqua soil 9L bag. I have three pieces of spider wood, two pieces of Malaysian driftwood and also a few props here and there for moss and things. I do plan on adding filter pool sand as well as rocks in there. Of course all in due time depending on how much I can say for this project I wanted to look the best of course however looking the best and trying to make everything the best also cost the best lol. When it comes to plans I have enough at the moment most likely I am going to end up saving for some blood vomit. Apart from that I will end up having 16 Cory pygmies, 6 ember tetra, 4 Dario Darios, 3 oto cats, 6 cpds, a fuse nails and low-grade cherry shrimps. Before I do anything else this is just a concept I came up for the hardscape any opinions or suggestions will be great thank you for your time. I know this seems like an overstock tank that's completely fine with me. Thank you again.

Pretty nice but The aquasoil will set. It will look a lot different a couple days after you add water.
