Any aquascaping suggestions for 55?


Hi!
I have a fairly new 55 gallon community tank with angelfish, corys, platys and mollies. I am pretty new to live plants and aquascaping. Today I bought a red flame sword and am not sure where it would look best. It is also taller than I thought and am wondering if it is too big??? Would the red flame maybe look better towards the center of the tank or further back in the corner it is in? I would love some suggestions
Thanks!
Kim

a real easy way to change the appearance would to make the sand uneven. maybe on the far right side make it an inch or two deeper, a slight slope. IMO, uneven substrate gives a more natural appearance.

the tank is pretty tall. i like the red flame sword. but i woula also att a tall piece of DW in the back of the tank.
