Thanks guys. I made the rock pile on the right smaller to help fit the golden ratio rule. I also placed two pieces of wood on the right and three on the left. It just got done gettting planted but its too cloudy to do any more tonight. I am waiting until tomorrow to put in the Crypt lucens X wilissii around the rock at the bottom and C. parva up the middle. I still have a couple crypts im hoping to find a place for. Ill post a pic up of progress tomorrow before I start mucking it up with the carpet, and ill get a full plant list posted. I could use some critique again

...And dont be scared to critique it. Even if youre a newb. If theres something you dont like...say it All things will be considered. Not necessarily changed, but considered there were 500 views between the last pic and this on and only a couple critiques

I agree. Its kind of decieving at this point because the C. nurii 'Rompin' thats there melted down to one lonely leaf. It gets much bigger but its going to take some time to come back. And one of the Buce stuck at the top also goes in there

looks good conceptually chad! but i would maybe tweak the right side peices of wood. maybe have one coming more forward instead of right-left. kind of angling forward from that back corner. to add some dimension.

oh, and you might want to tell your wife that the plates belong in the cabinets..not in your tank

Chad - I'm looking at the largest rock(white) in front right near the glass side and the largest rock left side, center.

Are you going to plant near/around them to soften them any? Or, maybe slope some dirt up. They seem a bit overwhelming at this point in time.

I was kinda thinking the same thing and this pretty much confirms it for me. I will move them and see if that makes it better, thanks!

Yes, they are getting Crypt lucens X willisii around them. I am going to back fil all the empty pockets and slopes once planting final. i WANT to do it tonight but it will muck up the water so bad I wont be able to see after planting. Maybe if I can still see good enough tonight

Chad

Looking good, Is that Langenandra thwaitsii in front of the branch on the right side if so I would love to hear how it does submersed and if it gets as big submersed as it does emersed (I have one with 24-30" leaves in my emersed grow out tank), also which piptospatha are you putting in the tank as I'd be interested in how it does as well. I'm thinking of starting a tank with more submersed buces or transition my cube to more buces (I already have 6 in there and a couple are big patches but they are buried by the trident and the crypts) by the way the buces that are shaded actually seem to grow quicker than the ones in direct light.
