Small tank, layout ideas please :)


Hi guys,
I have a nice 120 litre tank which planted (well, semi planted at least).

Also I have a smaller 60 liter tank.

I can easily plant it up, but i'm not getting any good ideas for the layout

I just need some help regarding the basic design

> Central stone ?

> Drift Wood rising from left bottom to right top ?

> One huge plant ?


Shoot some good ideas guys and thanks for the help

Okay, should I pick one large stone or few small ones ?

Colored stones, reddish ?

I was thinking a lot of small/medium rocks island style.

Another idea would be to use a substrate like Africana and reddish stones with a small beach or sandy area. Don't see those used very often in layouts.
