40b redoing


The last few month's the right side of my tank has been bothering me. What do you think of removing the rock and sword from the ride side and having a dwarf sag carpet? If you have any other suggestions let me know.

I should mention that the stem plants are easy to move around but the swords are difficult since this is a dirt substrate.

If you go that route, i think that side of the tank will look empty since you will loose all your height.

I think pulling the sword on the right is a good idea, however, you probably need something with a little more height than a dwarf sag carpet. The sword in the center makes a nice focal point, just needs to be book ended.

I picked up some willow hygro a few weeks ago and still waiting for it to adjust being under water. I agree the sword would look better at the end of the tank.
