My 125 gallon and its inhabitants (pic heavy)

So recently upgraded to 125 gallon tank, replanted a portion of the plants from my old 55 gallon. plans down the road will be a Sump system running around 1300 gph. a lot of the inhabitants will be moved to some other tanks in my house, and I will have angels, cardinal long fin serpae, corys and possibly some discuss in this tank. as far as scaping, my imagination is not the best at this yet!

That cave area looks pretty sweet

Fish Shrimp tanks are like cups of coffee, one is never enough.

thank you Daximus! there is actually another marble in there that is veiled! he hides lol.

I think once the swords get bigger it will look amazing, just feel like its missing something.. maybe some small wood pieces in the planted areas?

Well, I'm certainly not any sort of aquascape artist...my tank is basically a jungle, lol. That said...the thing that I personally think is missing from your tank is the flow of plants. Let me rephrase that; your tank goes plants:wood:plants...there is no transition. It looks like three separate tanks...does that make sense?

I don't know how to remedy that...maybe some foreground plants to tie both sides in? Or maybe some really tall plants behind the wood that extend out to blend it all in.

Again...I'm certainly not good at this, but thats what catches my eye is the lack of plants in front of and/or behind the wood.

I think you may have hit it right on the head... But how to remedy that is the question.. I really am not an aquascaper artist either but I am slowly growing the ludwiga along the back glass of the tank.
