That is really neat, the way he's got the wood laying over the stone, and it's similar to what I'm talking about, but the size of the stones take up so much room that you lose a lot of planting space that way. I've done arrangements like that in the past and was unhappy with the lost planting area.
The stones I'm planning on using will be no wider than 1" - 1.5", no longer than 2" - 2.5" and no thicker than .25" - .50". I will stack and epoxy the stones for the first tier about 4 - .25" pieces high for a total height of 2" - 2.5". Then fill in behind that with substrate and move in about 3" and build another wall there.
This would give me 3 different levels.
I think it would look neat and also, I'd be able to plant HC as a ground cover on the upper levels, closer to the lights. I've only got 3 wpg in the tank I'm planning this for and Hemianthus requires at least that much light.
What do you think? I know it sounds complicated. Hope my description was clear.
