it will look better once it gets filled in. Looks good so far.
I like the DW on the left side of the tank and agree that it will look good once it fills out more.
How many gallons is it/what fish are in there?
55g. current inhabitants are approximately 20 white cloud mountain minnows (half of them yellow), a yellow BN pleco, a false zebra pleco, 4 black neon tetra, 4 blood fins (going in my 20 when it cycles), 3 cories (need more i know) and a lone Ninja Shrimp that i only see about once every couple months haha
I'm not crazy about the slate. It takes up room and doesn't do much for the scape. Green mass behind the dw would make it pop and stand out.
Perhaps a larger leafed plant like Hygrophila corymbosa 'Siamensis' or an Alternanthera reineckii variety? Maybe a Barclaya or Madacasgar lace... There are so many choices.
will take a look at those large leaf plants, i really do like the look of them. The slate was originally put in as "caves" for the pleco and he quite likes them. maybe i can get some moss to grow over them to hide it.
I agree with replacing the slate. Put another piece of driftwood or a large plant in that area and I think the tank will look much more full.
i'd love to find a bunch of rib shaped drift wood to put there, get some cover from it and still kind of mesh with the steer shaped DW that is there now.
thanks for the recommendations, i think i have some plants to look into now!
