I know that forums are one of the best places to seek advice, and wanted to hear what you guys had to say about my setup and the best way to scape it. I have the tank ready and waiting for substrate, so i'm awfully excited to get going! I'll post some pic's shortly

here are some tank shots, I'm planning on black substrate and lots of plants! I have done lots of reading about the best way to plant a tank for maximum effect, but I want the best possible placement of my driftwoods and possibly the rocks. The funny shaped one is a Native American axehead that are fairly common to find lying around where I live, and thought it might make a neat addition. Thoughts?

Oops it helps to post the rock pics. also there is a shot of an additional driftwood that does fit but I don't want to clutter my setup.

I know I live next to Devils Lake, which has an unlimited amount of pieces like this. I laugh when I see them for sale in the LFS. I found these in 45 min. of looking
