Cant wait for updates with pictures. The flow should decrease with plants and when its full of gunk. I was wondering, what part of virginia do oyu live in? By the ocean?

Well, I decided to go in a very different direction, but most of the plants I was planning on using will still be in the 'scape. Here's a progression of what I've done this morning (comments to follow):










I'm still unsure as to whether I like the hardscape the way it is. I like the driftwood arch but I don't think I like the mountainous look on the right as much as I thought I would. I kind of prefer the way I had it in the first FTS as opposed to the last FTS. What do you think?

I really like it. Providing you can get the sand to stay put IMO it looks very good. The 1st looks very good too though, with a little more headroom for plants (plenty of that in rest of tank though). Tough decision. I would keep the "mountainous" look probably.

Mountain look on the right is awesome. Love the arch too. One of my favorite hardscapes that I've seen nice work.

Wow, that looks REALLY good. The texture of the wood really matches the rocks.

Well, I added a few more things and the water has cleared. That means...more pictures!! There are still more plants that need to go in and I will probably make some changes, but I'm really excited about this tank

What do you think about the blyxa in the back right? Is it a good choice, or do I need to have something else there? Do I need more of it? I can take out that rock in the back right and add more blyxa to the left of what's already there. I'll be working on this again tomorrow

Don't... Touch... That rock! Personally I like the blyxa as it is. What did you choose for your foreground for the left?

That piece of wood has so much character.
