|ramen lover||looks good! you said you arent happy with the intake tube placement? have you thought about moving the intake/output piping to the other side? that way the intake tubing will be more hidden behind the taller plants/driftwood? and just move the powerhead to the right side of the tank?|

|bikinibottom||Really like the balance between along the colors. And the dw is very well positioned. I'm sure it would be a pain in the A at this point, but have you considered creating a slope with the substrate? Might add a sense of depth/perspective to the tank.|

|iadubber||That is a big upgrade!|

Thanks! Sometimes I'm not sure if it was a good idea or not, as it limits my flexibility (i.e. suction cups don't stick) with equipment placement. But overall, it definitely lends a more "natural" feeling than other sorts of backgrounds, especially, as you say, in this style of scape.
I do want to start an Iwagumi style tank at some point, in which I think this type of background would not work.
Anyway, thanks for the comments - I enjoy reading them.

|GMYukonon24s||That's nice I like the different background. You don't see that rock style background that much.|

|tinkerpuppet||Looks great! I like the new dw addition.|

|RobMc||Huge improvement - looks organized now with a clear sense of flow|

|tiggity||That background is awesome! It just fits perfectly with the scape.|

Well I added some DW to the right, and some limnophilia repens around the front of the larger dw, and a bit behind the smaller. I also did a prune last Sunday - I'm attempting to get some branching from the stem plants and get them to begin to fill in more thickly. I also changed my filter setup - not sure I'm 100% happy with the placement of the intake tube, but I think once the cambomba fills in with some height it should hide it.
Let me know what you think!

|jshaffer740||Thanks everyone. I think I will try a piece of DW on the right. It's just a matter of finding the right piece...|

|Meganne||much better, and it was nice to start with!|

if you could add a second smaller piece of wood to the right foreground it would enhance the overall effect

|mitchfish9||Definitely an improvement in my opinion|
