HELP!! My first scape


Hi all. I am new here and this is my first planted tank. I have been reading a lot on this site for the last month. Everyone on here is so knowledgeable and I have learned a lot. Thank you all.

What I plan to accomplish:
-South American plants and fish.

-Tank is standard 75 gallon.

-I was thinking about maybe adding some manzanita.

-After I finish the hard scape, I will worry about planting around that design.

-Hope the pictures come out clear enough. The glass was dirty and I was only using my phone.

Any/all comments appreciated, no matter how harsh. Even if that means tearing it all apart and starting from scratch.

I like the stones you're using, however there's no real height to the hardscape. Maybe adjust some of the rocks so they have more of a dramatic effect?

Have you thought about stacking the slate on top of each other to gain some height and a more realistic look?

I agree that you need some height to the stones

Thank you. I left the left side alone and completely overhauled the right side. What do you think?http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/pH...tle=try_2c.jpg

I guess for me I can picture anywhere in nature that would look like that, but that isn't to say that I just can't see the end result of the genius vision you have for the tank. I look forward to seeing it evolve and am intrigued to see how it looks planted
