fred1163 Thank you chou, thank you DogFish.

Hmmm...so, you are both basically saying to make one larger piece instead of two?

Ok, will try that. I will be adding more substrate soon too. Thanks again for the help!

DogFish Hardscape - Less is better.

I think with those pieces I would use the larger one on right group with the ones on the left and arrange them vertically to create a stump. In the position area the left group is now.

Maybe one of the smaller pc. set like a root coming from the stump.?

chou IMO - i think you should raise the soil in the back more to give it more depth. and instead of placing 2 pieces of wood side by side, have them intertwined into the middle, with the plants coming out from the middle.

How's this basic hardscape??

This is a very preliminary hardscape of my newly started 90 gallon (48" L X 18" W X 24" H)...I will be adding a black? or blue? background, and I have a basic idea of around 200 individual plants to start (only 4 species)!

It will be a low light, low tech setup - no Co2, 4 x fluorescent 32W 6500K GE daylight bulbs mounted in white reflective shoplights.

Plants I have in mind are Corkscrew Val, Giant Val, Java Fern, and Bacopa (sp.)

Back to the hardscape! This is a trial run. Whad'ya think? Appreciate everyone's opinions.
