Need some input on this layout. There are 4 rocks on the left and 3 on the right. Fire away!

They seem a bit low for the tank

Gafi 08-16-2012 04:30 AM

really? nothing else from anyone.....perhaps I will mound the substrate higher then to fix the height issue?

The pointy rock closer to the middle on the left side looks unnatural. Maybe swap the two big ones on the left side?

Gafi 08-16-2012 04:58 AM

you mean swap the two left ones? and point it the same way?

how about this?

nanobettaman 08-16-2012 05:14 AM

that looks way better imo. Are you doing a dry start or? What plants do you plan to use?

Edit: maybe move the right hand side further right, create more of a plain between it and the center rocks.

ultimatley, this will be a HC tank only.....however, it will house Stem plants for a little while, until I can get a ghood established carpet of HC

Do you mean move all the rocks on the right further to the right?

nanobettaman 08-16-2012 05:20 AM

That will look great!

Yes, rocks on the right further right

ok changed it up a bit....let me know what you think of this....i raised the right pointer rock up a bit and added a tiny rock to the bottom right.

nanobettaman 08-16-2012 05:48 AM

That looks good. I like that you changed it so that the left and right side rocks are at different elevations. There's a nice flow that takes your eye from the center, to the right, and then across to the left.

The large stone in the front right is really distracting
