You either need more wood or more rock. What plants are going in there. Sit down and draw some photos of what you want it to look like. Or look at lots of photos of tanks and see what it is that you like about them

What would you suggest? Rock or wood? I really like the wood that is in there.. Ive been searching tanks here and on aquatic plant central, and havent been able to find a scape I really like or that I could recreate in this tank...

This is going to be a high tech tank...with 3.4wpg, pressurized co2, ferts, ada as...As far as plants go I think I will have a sword or two in the back...glosso or maybe hc covering the substrate..I dont know what else I will put in there..

I'd take out some of that substrate. You certainly don't need that much. Remember, an aquascape can only be as good as the materials you start with.

Go to www.aquaforestaquarium.com for some hardscape. Sometimes an LFS will have some good stuff too.

In college....so no aquariums for a while.....

Originally I had planned to get rocks and do like a step type scape where the lower half was one type of ground cover, and then the upper layer was different..I havent been able to find the right rocks for this however...thus the reason for all the substrate..
