I was hoping someone with experience could take a peek at my layout and tell me if this seems resonable or not. Below is an attatched picture of what I was thinking of doing. The slate shelf would be a stack of thin slate rocks to for a cliff like surface 5-6 inches tall, with a rather large piece of leggy driftwood, covered in Bazilian Ivy The tank is going to be a standard length 30 gallon. I haven't decided on lighting yet... Any suggestions? TIA. Josh

Nice layout. I only have a few comments to make, I am as well expirementing with proper plant placement.

The two foreground plants you have are quite slow growers. It may take awhile to get a nice carpet. Also, with the amount of Stargrass you have, you might have to spend quite a while pruning them! I hear they grow like a weed. If the "Carolina Fanwort" is a Cabomba, it may actually get bigger(or same size) than the Stargrass behind it. The height should not be too much of a problem in 30g, it just might block your view of the scenery behind it.
