What about that last one with the far right rock flipped around? I'll post a photo tomorrow, it's hard to explain.

Nice start, I think I prefer the first scape you made.

I tried your method and here's what I got:


Used some other rocks and came up with this:

I like how you have kept that far left rock in the same place, that's a perfect positioning. I'm thinking you should really try some left-skewed or right-skewed scapes and see what you get.

I see of course what you mean about using an odd number of rocks to avoid a symmetrical scape; there is irony in the fact, however, that you've managed to make a very symmetrical scape using an odd number of rocks. Quantity's not related to symmetry -- arrangement is!

Whatever you do, do whatever works best for you. I'm not sure if I'm bothering you, but I feel like I am

Are those Sieryu stones? What are your plans for this tank?

So here's the final scape that I've decided to go with:


With flora wise, I might go with a complete carpet of fissidens fontanus, Mini Xmas moss or DHG Belem. What do you guys think?

I've been keeping up with your scaping options in both forums, and this is by far the best!
Very nice J!

Thanks guys! Now I'm just stuck on flora now. I'm thinking either full carpets of the following: Mini Xmas Moss, Fissidens Fontanus or DHG Belem or a combination of one of the mosses with Belem

I think those plants will need more time to form into a dense carpet. I would go for HC, because they grow much faster. Just my 2 cents. I have no experience with those plants anyway.

I think any moss would look great with a sencond small plant peeking out here and there, like 'belem', 'parva', or Narrow Leaf Micro Sword.

I've never had much luck with HC and I don't really plan on fertilizing at all. Maybe a little co2 here and there. I also don't really want my hands in this tank either which isn't really possible with the occasional trims that HC requires. Moss and Belem would be a lot less maintenance.

A carpet of fissidens? I just fear that it'll take forever to fill in. Especially una setup without any CO2 or Ferts. I find that it'll be worth it though. How about downoi instead of Belem?

Any other suggestions with flora? Having trouble thinking of more.

Nice rock formation! I like the idea of a fissidens carpet but I agree that it would take forever to carpet. Why not just follow the idea of a belem carpet with sections of fissidens mixed in? It'd all grow together pretty nicely.
