I was thinking that as well. Attach some christmas moss to those branches and it should look pretty awesome when it grows out.

What I was suggesting is I like that clump pattern scape of yours. It would be better if vegetation is poking their through the driftwood. Just arrange the riccia it will be perfect

I feel your pain. You see these nice aquascaped tanks and think, I want and can do that, then you try, and, well, doesn't work out as well. lol.

here is my journey and transformation, and it's looking nicer and nicer each day as the plants fill in.

The other thing to remember, is when you see all these nice scapes in photos and on sites, most of the time, they spent hours or days pruning the tank exactly, and then snapping the perfect photo, then they leave it and it grows in or they tear it down. It's like seeing a super model in a $1000 dress and after 6 hours of hair and makeup. That's the moneyshot. Seeing a super model with no makeup and in jogging pants, looks like a whole different woman. They play the same trick on us with planted tanks. lol.

Heres the update, got a kessil A150 Amazon sun today and probably gonna redo this tank with aquasoul and different layout. Has anyone tried the kessil without Co2?

Looks nice. Just needs to give the plants time to grow and fill in a bit.

Looking good! Much better than the original attempt, but that is the best part. When you get to mess with stuff and make it look better and it comes out it is awesome! Great work so far, keep us in the loop! Lots of photos.
