Hey Planted Tank community,
This is my first planted tank. Looking to learning and document my project. I would love any comments or suggestions.

Stage 1: Dry Start and Aquascape
Welcome to the Planted Tank! Looks great so far. Not sure about the flat rock in the corner, but you are probably still trying out some arrangements.
Welcome to the forum! Nice Start!
I'm not feeling the flat rock either, I'll probably just take it out. Maybe I'll post a picture of the hardscape materials I have so people can give more suggestions.
If you took the flat rock and buried it in the substrate so that it was standing up instead of lying down, that might be more interesting.
I like that idea. Check back for pictures tonight.
I took a picture of the flat rock in a new spot but accidentally deleted from my phone. But take a peak at my rock and stick collection :confused1:
Update for the homies,
I am still unsure about the flat rock in the left foreground, my main issue with it is the color having so much more red in it. I am planning a risky re-scaping.
Has anyone pulled their plants out during a DSM for 30-60 minutes? I want to improve my hardscape, and maybe change some stuff around. Buying new plants and restarting the DSM wouldn't be completely out of the question, I would only be out a week.
You can see the rock in question in this picture. The drift would on the right, will eventually have some moss on top.
Arial view of DSM, about 5 days after planting. I just started spraying with "Seachem Flourish"
Just noticed that some of the dwarf hairgrass is turning brown, is this a problem, or might they just be adapting to new conditions. They were grown submersed so I thought they might not be used to DSM conditions.
Thanks for looking and help!
The darker color of the flat rock does make it stick out. Hmmm... well; you could either take it out, get another similar rock to put in there, or add another rock of an even different color.
sorry for the hiatus
I'v just been waiting for the dry start to finish up. I eventually got antsy and decided to fill the tank.
The flat rock is still in the tank but can still be taken out easily. I also buried the big rock and wood piece a little deeper.
Does the flat rock still bother everybody? I could add a similar rock (pictured a few posts up), but I think it is a little to big for the foreground, or I would have to bury it a little bit.

I'm a firm believer in doing what appeals to you, not what appeals to me or anyone else. If you like it, that's all that matters! Either way I think it looks like a great start. :icon_smil
But keep the critiques coming PT community :fish:
Lookin good homie!
You have good tank and light, but your set up is very confuse . I do not understand what's ur main point. You should look other member's set up and learn how to do landscape
I hope you can build some cool fish tank in future
Welcome to our forum
I will read more in the aquascaping section :)
Looking forward to an expanded critique.
