What a "Clear" Tank. Everything looks so glass like...

I like the way the rock and wood look together.

Very nice driftwood but IMHO
the rocks are not needed, maybe
just one or two of them will do.

You're off to a great start that driftwood looks fantastic. If you can try to put fewer rocks off different sizes and see how that looks. They all look too uniform but it's your tank so in the end use what you like the most. Good job.

I would keep the rocks, the barrier between the sand and soil is needed, because without it, it will become a maintenance nightmare to keep each separate. Mixed they do not look so great. This advice comes straight from Aqua Journal Vol 205. If you notice at the Nature Aquarium Gallery, all tanks with cosmetic sand have a barrier of rocks to separate the sand.

Otherwise looking great!

those rock are use to block the soil come to sand and with moss, anubias petite, NLJF between wood and rock, they won't be that obvious

reason to choose the bigger rock because I want to level the side so later on when I put anubias petite and NLJF plant's leaves will not easily touch down to the sand.


I want to make effect like this
