opinions on this wood placement please

Hi there,

decided to photograph this placement in my tank to get some opinions from experienced people that could visualise this with plants. Negative or positive, wont matter.

Regards Darren

I like it. I think it looks rally nice that way. I think positioning it more to the left of the tank though would look better. What plants are going into the tank?

Beautiful pieces of wood. I, personally would try to find a third piece. Smallish and placed toward the front. In 20 years or so of doing Bonsai, I have become a firm believer in three's. The one on the left could almost look like two seperate pieces if it was turned differently.

Plant selection is impressive. Cant wait to see how you narrow that list down. It is going to be an awsome tank!

Have fun

I would position them together and make it look like one large piece off to one side or the other. But before I did that I would tear rip off that background...

This seems to be some popular wood today duzzy... https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/ge...r-upright.html

We may be able to help better if you keep it in the same thread.

I like it but I might want to get the left piece a little bit more left as to block the plumbing a little better.

And I do agree that the jacquard backing isn't quite right. Perhaps black craft paper or bristol board.

thanks all, sorry about the double thread and as for the backing using black lami panel but the couch cover was the darkest thing i could find to photograph.

narrowing the plant list wont be an issue but affording it might lol

I'm with aquabear. It looks a little to symmetrical for my personal taste (though that might be the shot angle?)
