I have a slight grade (0.5-1.0") from front to back.

So the piece on the right, I had buried the base. It looks like this





I took a suggestion from Tom Barr and flipped things so it would look more natural...going to work on this setup some more tomorrow. I'm not completely happy with the rock layout.

I especially like the piece on the left - this does look much better.

I actually like the piece on the right (darker wood) more. I'm going to change/mess with the left side more today. I just don't think it flows very well right now.

That one looks real nice

But the depth of the substrate throws off the proportions of the aquarium in my view.

It's 4" of substrate...I could always put a piece of black plastic/tape at the bottom to cover a couple inches.

I like this version the best. But I would ad some more "root" looking driftwood in the front left corner. To balance the scape better and create better depth

Quick update for tonight....
  • First off, I decided to get rid of the piece of wood on the left. I am purchasing one that better matches the layout from Tom B. So I probably won't have an update for a week or two.
  • Got the lights hung up
  • I ordered some more toys today...Apogee PAR meter, LaMott's AQ-2 test kit, TDS handheld meter, a couple back-up aqualifts, aqualifter holder and a replacement pH probe. I also grabbed some leftover SS mesh from work to cover the CPR202 inlet.
