|UDGags||I basically have a stack of wood and that's what I chose. I have two other large pieces, one I used in 2013 and the other is too big for the tank. Ideally, I would have bought some new wood but I don't have the money for it so I'm working with what I got.|

i think i've mentioned this in the past, but props again for identifying plant names w/ pics. i'm not an expert by any means and it really helps to get to know the plants better. appreciate your effort in doing so.
agree w/ others on your 2013 tank. one of the best!

|UDGags||Yeah, the thing the bugs me the most right now is that two pieces of wood are two different colors. I'm hoping long term I can cover/mask the front one.|

|HSA1255||I think you could do a tank that's heavy on one side successfully... or even one with a center clump with branches reaching out.. you have the addiction. Ha.|

You sound like my wife. I asked her about the hardscape and she wasn't a huge fan either. She liked when I had one piece of wood on each side the best. I also liked the wood on each side but that was so much like my 2013 tank that I wanted something a bit different. We'll see how it works out. It's easy enough to flip the wood and replant if this doesn't pan out.

|HSA1255||I just read this whole thread because I love the look of your tank. Wow, you really know what your doing and the scapes you have accomplished are remarkable. I've got to be honest, this recent layout of wood seems a bit too linear to me... and the back right piece curving up like a head just strikes me as odd... but seeing the work you have done I think you could plant it just like it is and it will be remarkable. Some of your other hardscapes at this preliminary point just drew my eye in more I suppose... But I have seen some really cool looking tanks that drew attention when the plants and hardscape complemented each other well. I think you are capable of doing just that with the arrangement you have. Amazing skills, I am looking forward to seeing where this scape takes you.|

Your driftwood looks like a kangaroo sleeping!
Those are great plant choices. Will be following the progress.

So I've been busy since my plants came in Friday.
My to-do list
Here are the pictures of the plants and tank currently. This won't be the finally plant placement most likely for some of the plants but it will work to let them grow out. Most of the plants came in looking decent. A couple were a bit rough but I think everything will be fine in a week or two.
Full Tank Shot
Hygrophila sp. 'Araguaia' (emersed form)
Ludwigia "Red" Hybrid
Alternanthera Reineckii 'Variegated'
Crypt Striolata & Eleocharis 'belem' (DGH belem)
Striolata came in a bit rough but should be fine
A couple of my cories swimming by
I always love to hear feedback good or bad!
