I always like checking out your tank. Inspiring dutch work. Looks like you are off to a good start for 2015.

I just read this whole thread because I love the look of your tank. Wow, you really know what your doing and the scapes you have accomplished are remarkable. I've got to be honest, this recent layout of wood seems a bit too linear to me... and the back right piece curving up like a head just strikes me as odd... but seeing the work you have done I think you could plant it just like it is and it will be remarkable. Some of your other hardscapes at this preliminary point just drew my eye in more I suppose... But I have seen some really cool looking tanks that drew attention when the plants and hardscape complemented each other well. I think you are capable of doing just that with the arrangement you have. Amazing skills, I am looking forward to seeing where this scape takes you.

Thanks for all the compliments. I've definitely learned a lot through this process.

You sound like my wife. I asked her about the hardscape and she wasn't a huge fan either. She liked when I had one piece of wood on each side the best. I also liked the wood on each side but that was so much like my 2013 tank that I wanted something a bit different. We'll see how it works out. It's easy enough to flip the wood and replant if this doesn't pan out.

I think you could do a tank that's heavy on one side successfully... or even one with a center clump with branches reaching out.. you have the addiction. Ha.

Yeah, the thing the bugs me the most right now is that two pieces of wood are two different colors. I'm hoping long term I can cover/mask the front one.

i noticed that immediately and liked the contrast. assumed it was by design as your tanks are very thought out.

i think i've mentioned this in the past, but props again for identifying plant names w/ pics. i'm not an expert by any means and it really helps to get to know the plants better. appreciate your effort in doing so.

agree w/ others on your 2013 tank. one of the best!

I basically have a stack of wood and that's what I chose. I have two other large pieces, one I used in 2013 and the other is too big for the tank. Ideally, I would have bought some new wood but I don't have the money for it so I'm working with what I got.
