I'm planning on getting some ludwigia brevipes and eleocharis vivipara once the tank is filled. Ludwigia brevipes will go where my rocks are and I'm going to make an arch with the hair grass.

Thank you so much for posting your inspiration photo! I'm totally new to aquascapi g - don't even know anyone with a tank! The focal point of my tank will be the entrance to the kuhli loach tunnel hide and I was thinking an arch to frame it. Thanks for showing me how to go about it.
