My goal is just to have the Malaysian driftwood as the centerpiece. I am contemplating whether I should use rock at all. I could only find 3 rocks like the ones I have in there so they are sort of useless. My substrate will be Eco-earth fine...with a gentle slope from the back @ the moment. I considered maybe white river rock, but idk. My goal is not Iwagami...kind of a pseudo biotope-dutch hybrid (which actually means I have no idea lol). I really love the look of Tonina tanks, but I have a friend that tells me I am crazy to want to try that as a first tank. My thoughts that I use carpet around the front and the right side of the tank. Then use some stems around the drift wood and some sort of red plant. I would love a bocapa as well.
