So the idea for this scape was, naturally, to try to create depth and space in a small tank. I would have liked to use the thick piece of wood in the front but unfortunately it wouldn't cooperate so I had to use the thinner wood in front and the thicker wood in the back. Overall I wanted the idea to be that the small amount of negative space was a quasi focal point as the rest of the tank has lines that draw the eye there. I used HC for a carpet, Hydrocotyle tripartita to establish a midground, Rotala rotundifolia for the start of the background and Rotala sp "Green" for the background. I am hoping the lighter color of the rotundifolia will make the smaller, darker "Green" leaves seem further away. I am also hoping the yamaya stone will help to define another visual line to the back of the tank. I have a lot of hopes but honestly as this is my first real effort at a scape I am planning to fail miserably and learn a lot.
