I really like those 2 pieces on the left side. But don't care much for the one on the right. Good start though

i like the two on the left also. the only reason i have the one on the right is because its covering up the white pvc in/outputs for my water pump. its the only one i have thats tall enough. if i take that one out them i left with 2. i dont like even #'s.


suggestions?

I actually like the one on the right, the lower branch will make a great place for some moss

I think the one on the right looks sweet. Great place to grow some fern.

Miracle grow organic choice potting mix... this stuff is weird. i usually just use top soil.


pool flter sand. its so freakin white. hope it tones down a bit.



this sword is over 2 ft tall and spreads out 2 feet wide. i was debating whether i wanted to use it just because its so huge. i trimmed off a couple dozen leaves. i wanted to pitch it but felt bad because its the first plant i ever bought (i have 2 this large) a couple years ago. its been sitting ina dark cold bucket for a couple days.



this tank previously housed discus, they are currently in a holding tank. due to a stupid mistake i lost my largest one i've had for years. contempleting trying to trade them in for store credit. i have an 18 month old child and they are just too much work right now.

You have an amazing tank, Non C. I haven't looked through the whole journal, but I skimmed it a bit. I will definitely be looking through it with more detail tomorrow!
