A few people have mentioned driftwood, I just don't feel it ATM. Maybe I'll change my mind in the future when it grows out.

skinz180189 Well this is the 3rd look of the tank. Personally I'm quite pleased, plants can be moved depending on their growth etc, but for the time being I like it.

SPECIAL||PLANS maybe its me and my crappy city water but i think planted tanks either fail or flourish. if you want to go low tech the skill required to balance everything takes time to learn, which is usually picked up on through fighting algae, trimming plants, etc. and again, this is probably me being wishful, but i'm hoping the high tech quality looking tank is actually easier to achieve once all the pricey equipment has been brought in. i'd like to hear others opinion on that.

skinz180189 Getting a load of matching rocks through the week to play around with this weekend. I don't know about swapping substrate out though, I don't have another tank I can put the fish in.

Plus at the end of the day, I'm not looking to enter AGA or anything. I've not got the ability to grow a stunning tank like most of the forum seem to have.

mistergreen mmmmm, yeah.
Let's get back on track


I would swap out the substrate too if you can to something finer.
The larger course gravel makes your tank look small. Watch the size of your rocks and plants too. Too big and it looks crowed and makes you tank look small even though it's relatively small.

Funny that, as I'm an apprentice engineer! I've rescaped it now, pictures will be in my Journal later.

Francis Xavier I would try to first find more uniform types of rock/same types of stone. Second make sure theyre a bit bigger since currently they are a bit small to make a good impression.

You can probably find some decent rock by hunting outside depending on where you are.

When an engineer says the drawing looks rough, you know its going to be rough, LOL!
