Someone on another forum said my scape lacked "flow"

I was shooting for a fantasy/fictional mountian scape when i started this. NOT a scape that appeared preplanned. Nor one that would be submitted in a Scaping contest and had to meet "certian criteria".

BUT i want it to look as nice and as pleasing to the eye as possible.

So....If you think that i need to make adjustments PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make suggestions now while i can still change things around. Beacuse after the flood, it will be too late.

Folks, help me out here.

Thx

I personally love it, the left side reminds me of Lord of the Rings Gates of Argonath, and the right side is awesome to, love the cave.

Its your tank, you live with it, do what you want.

thx bucket! i appreciate that.

Funny thing is, Wall of the Sun is a mountian in LOTR, Thats where i got the title

I am definitely liking round 2 of the scape alot better.

I am also removing all of the sand. That was a bad idea.... Like drinking milk after a long hot jog.

thx Doug, yeah, me either. I just diced up some min fiss and smeared it on the "North" side of the mountian faces/rock edges so it will be another 2 weeks or so.

I will say this. After pulling UG up to move stones aroud, i am amazed at the root growth in both depth and volume over such a short period of time.

sand is still not out because my other bag of AS has not arrived. Nor have i covered it. Sorry

I was advice to move or remove the overhanging rock at the base of the right mountian, but i can bring myself to move/remove it. I really like it.

I kinda like this set up. The negative space is not a V but rather U-ish in shape.

This is a very cool setup thus far. I have to agree, I like the overhanging rock. Looking forward to seeing the progress.

This scape looks a lot better than the first and I wouldn't move the overhanging rock myself, I think it looks good. Sometimes you just have to go with what looks good to you and don't worry about what others say. But I have to agree that the changes you made with the rocks and removal of the sand were for the better. It would have been a pain to keep the AS from mixing with the sand. Looking forward to seeing this filled up. The only thing I would suggest is the second biggest rock on the left needs to have some more substrate around the base(or buried more) so it doesn't look like it just sitting on top of the substrate

Looks AWESOME buddy! Kinda reminds me of my scape, just w/o the dw.

You gotta stay vigilant at keeping that sand area free from AS! haha

Sorry if I missed it but if you're planning on keeping any cories in there, you can forgetaboutit! No cories and no plecos!

thx speedie.

actually i am in the process of removing the sand. In the planning stages, in my minds eye, the sand beach was a good idea. BUT once i poured it down around the AS, i instantly saw that it was a bad idea.
