Cinbos I would recommend getting some more substrate so you can slope and create depth. Shorter in the front, higher in the back. As for real plants, I would go with very easy plants at the moment, like anubias and java fern, you have to tie these down to rocks and your nice pieces of driftwood that you have. They have them at petsmart and petco, can be expensive though. Also if you are wanting a lighter substrate like the sand you have, you should go with pool filter sand. Almost all pool stores have it, and fairly cheap. Anywhere from $5-$10 for a 50 lb bag! 1 Bag should do, but you can get extra if you'd like. I always have extra on hand just in case some comes out during water changes.

Tmittone3 I'm looking to get plants don't know where to get them around here.
Thank you for the comments I'm pretty happy with it so far. I need to junk the plastic cuz it killed one of my archer fish.

tomfromstlouis I like the driftwood and its placement. I like the rounded rocks. The sand looks good. I think you have a good eye, which makes the fake plants even more out of place. (I don't think you expected rave reviews on the plastic from us and so I will dish it to you).

There are plenty of nice easy plants that would give your tank a more natural feel and compliment your hardscape beautifully. Why not try it?

A wall of vals would look great. Or a few crypts. Or java ferns. And, while you tell us your plant plans, tell us about fauna too.

Awesome drift wood and rock scape. Probably would look better without the fake plants, that would make a nice cichlid tank.
