not really thrilled.. much needed help

I just posted this in another section in here...

when I first started with plants, I just bought some and planted them anywhere. i am just not too happy with the wood placement. would it be ok if i took out all of the plants and rearrange them? any ideas would be great!

First, might want to report one of your threads to a mod so it can be deleted. No reason to have two going at the same time on the same board on the same subject. Just gets confusing to members responding to help.

As far as the wood, I can't really see what it looks like on my monitor here so it's impossible to say what to do.

Plant-wise you may have some tall growing plants pretty close to the front that you'll want to move later anyway.

I'd say you need to plant more of the same type of plant in groups rater than scattered. Again, hard for me to tell exactly what you have in there from here.

if you are asking if its ok to pull out plants and move them around that is perfectly ok.

I'd suggested get a bucket or two, or a tub and putting some tank water in them. then pull out the plants you intend to move and place them in the tub or bucket. Place your hardscape where you want it, then replant. Some plants may take rough, but most should be fine.

DO a large water change after moving all those plants or you could have an algae outbreak depending on what is in your substrate
