Thanks. A tank like this would be great

The only problem is i have an internal filter which i suppose i could hide behind the wood.

That is a great scape by Antonio Nikolic. The tank is really small only 38x19x22cm. It requires a lot of hardscape to make something like this (Antonio scape).

A canister filter (eheim classic 150 or dennerle scapers flow) with lily pipes looks much nicer. It improves the scape a lot!

To make a forest like mine just snipe the right pieces and be ready to use a saw to cut pieces. Remember the big/thick pieces in front and go slowly thinner towards the back to create the illusion of depth. If I could do my 34 gal over I would do the following things. Raise the substrate higher in the back. Build the left and right front full of hardscape(as you can see in Antonio scape) & (this makes your eye lead to the middle = more depth). Cover the trees full of moss with fishing line (as spiderwood is very fresh wood mosses attach really bad, fishing line is permanent and keeps the moss in place.).
