Here are some pictures. Once I started putting the white sand around the rocks, I realized I liked the way they looked better against the dark soil, so I bought some black sand from Petco and I put that around the rocks.
I bought the rocks at a LFS, and the driftwood at a chain Petstore. I originally planned on having a piece of driftwood that looked more like a long branch, but this piece is actually really cool-looking with the textures and holes and everything. It took me a few minutes to situate the way I like it, but I'm pretty happy with it. I have some plants already so I may just start filling it up today and planting!
I think I will put one of the lily plants in the back right corner and one in the little nook of the driftwood.
I have some dwarf hairgrass that I will put in the foreground on the left side, and I think I will put the pennywort behind the right side of the driftwood. I want something smaller for the foreground on the right side- something creeping with tiny leaves. Also, some kind of moss for the drift wood.
Also, should I boil the driftwood? I don't know if it's possible, though, because I don't have a pot big enough...
