|mistergreen||Thanks. It was a lucky find. I was strolling in Michigan and found the dead tree. I don't see too many weeping willows down here in Cincinnati. I hear they like to grow around a body of water.|

|Only One Haze||Love it! That wood is great|

Ok, finally made the change. I still need to replant and distribute the sand better but it's almost there. The driftwood is from a dead weeping willow tree. The wood is gnarl like mazanita. It's a strange wood, some parts are hard, some parts are soft. Well, the loaches seems to love the new setup.

|mistergreen||Had a little set back. I found a cattepillar in the glosso. The glosso was its salad bowl.|

here are the rocks.
There's 3 different types. I'm still planning on what is best. Mixing the 3 type might be too much in terms of harmony, maybe 2 type will work depending on size/quantity. I'll go back to the rock shop to get more of whatever I decide on.

|mistergreen||I lied. I might take out these rocks. I found cooler looking rock at a local rock shop, Buschelman's (for Cincinnatians). There were some gorgeous rocks, like ADA, rock garden type rocks but they have to be a least a ton. I wish I can take a chisel and hammer to them. I can only grab what I can out of a bin which was pretty darn hard (fingers not smashed). I managed to grab 100lbs of rocks. Not sure what type they are.|

|BS87||If you want to display the rock work, you could always transplant the larger plants behind it, keeping the foreground the same. You'd still have the nice tall foliage, but it would highlight the rocks in front of it.|

|mistergreen||Thanks. I stretched $15 worth of plants to $60|

It's due for a rescaping. I'm not planning to tear the tank down but only to trim, add sand, wood, and new plants.
I'm growing some plants (glosso, HC, DHG) right now to add into the tank. The plants are grown in wabi-kusa balls of sand and osmecote; no dirt to keep down the mess.
I was planning to transplant the whole wabikusa into the tank rather than each plant individually where the fishes might rip them up.
As you can see, plants grow amazingly well in this setup. This is outside btw.
