How do you feel about a centralized rock pile type scape? I'll try to find an example.

Update: something like this? http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...d.php?t=172772

Took a more horizontal approach with this. Only used two larger stones accompanied by three smaller ones





Something's just wrong with the front left...

There we go!

Still, too symmetrical in my opinion. Your two outer rocks, they're like this: / /. In order fix the front left, I'd take the far left rock and replace it with the one on the far right, and then take the one from the left and turn it inward, like this: / \. I'd slope the substrate some too. I think all of this would look more natural.

Can't wait to see how this turns out.

Yeah, getting better! Of you could change out that far right rock completely, actually, it might look better.

That's what I was thinking when I was looking at it yesterday but wanted to hear some opinions first!

I tried what you suggested 150EH, here's the same stone:


And three others:
# 1 This one's the same stone but placed more vertically than the first one

Great potential here, the middle rock just looks unnatural and throws the whole thing off....

Any suggestions? I'm thinking of picking a much smaller rock that doesn't have much significance and have it poking out of the substrate.

I'd take the center rock out altogether and move everything over to the left. Try that and see how you like it. You don't want a centered scape (maybe you do, idk ).

I've always tried to avoid an even number of rocks as I feel that it adds a symmetrical sense to the scape.
