Another tank...would like your input


I moved tiger lotus and planted some more dhg along with some pogostemus helferi. Trimmed large plants waaaaaay back so they could all get enough light. What do you think?

Looks great - I do think though, that some nice branchy driftwood would add to the beauty.

I agree...just am having a hard time finding branchy driftwood . All sorts of stumpy or blocky driftwood , but those beautiful branchy pieces seem to be difficult to find! There is this tree outside a restaurant , but they may miss a substantial branch on the right side...lol

I think anything you can do to draw attention away from the very center of the tank would help. Right now, that is where the focal point is, and the eye doesn't move. Highest point on the right is good, but you need to angle down to the left. Either some taller than the center plants to the right, or shorter stuff in the center will help?
Otherwise, looks really nice!

Thanks for the input...I have been researching for a very long time, but actual practice is much different! I've had my planted aquariums going for about three months on the longest one and one and a half on the other two. Plant selection isn't always what I'd hope for. Any recommendation on where to order plants that are good quality? I also would like to know where everyone is getting these beautiful branchy wood pieces and what type of wood it is.

Probably Manzanita. I bought a piece recently from a member on the forum that was nice and branchy. www.manzanita-driftwood.com also has some nice pieces and decent prices. Not too familiar with other sources.
