Kwheeler's 40 Gallon Experiment -Finished Planting -

After multiple disappointments with my 55 gallon and never being happy with it i decided to pull my dirftwood from the 55 and put it in my 40 gallon in hopes of a better scape with the reduced length and added depth. I ran out of time tonight but im going to put the plants in tomorrow. Probably some needle leaf java fern, some crypts, some stems and a marsilea minuta carpet(hopefully). I put together a hardscape tonight, i might do another one tomorrow to see if i can do better but let me know what you think and thanks for looking. sorry for the reflection/bubbles/unfilled tank

It looks awesome the wood is positioned very nicely. I would however move everything over a few inches to the left but keep it lookin exactly the same way.

Looks pretty good. just needs to grow in a bit especially on the left side but definitely looks great. At least your past the hard part now you get to just sit back and enjoy. Until your clown decides you've done enough relaxing and starts digging stuff up.
