Guess I'll put an Amano shrimp in there and take out the RCS. I'm actually BORED of RCS LOL. Wouldn't be very sad if they died out on me in my 10 gallon :-D. I will also leave the bee shrimp because IMO, they give the "cool" feeling of an Iwagumi. I'm not trying to make a "real" iwagumi though, but I like the "cool" feeling in tanks.
Well what could I use for a white background? Paper? I'll try that tonight and see how it goes. And actually, the tank has no background. I used to have a black one but I took that one out. The wall behind the tank is white. But the room was dark so it didn't matter at all lol.
Maybe on the right side I could try some U. Graminifolia? Man that plant looks sick.
Fresh_lynny gave me an idea to move the blyxa to one side, and on the left side background, to add some other small plant. I guess to make it seem like a mountain side thingy? She commented as it being too symmetrical. I guess it is, but right now the blxya on the right is bigger than the one on the left so it takes that away, but blyxa isn't gonna be that small forever is it...
I hope the blyxa won't grow WAY too big for the tank. I love the look of it in the tank, and I especially like it because not too many people use it for the main background tank in Iwagumi's :-D. Especially in nano's.3
O yah and another question. Is it not wise to use a telephoto lens to take pictures of a tank? Photo teacher told me that telephoto lens tend to compress the image making it seem like something way back is much more closer. I'll try taking it with another lens this time. White background and not.
Of course, without a well put scape, presentation does not matter.
What I'm most scared of is that if I try to rescape the tank, it would lose its formal glory. I want the HC to fill in and make a mat first before I do anything too drastic. Maybe small changes like move the blyxa on the far left. It's still pretty small.
