Maybe you could take some pictures and we could critique each placement?
Good Idea here they are. The tank is dry and I just placed them in a center focal point. My thought are to place a lot of tall in the background but I can decide whether to spread out the wood. It really did not look good but I do think plants will help.Sir_BlackhOle said:Maybe you could take some pictures and we could critique each placement?
As you can see layout is not one of my talents. As far as plants I was thinking some watersprite, red tiger lotus, rotala marcandra, anubias barteri, some swords ludwiga repaens and maybe some pigmy chain swords.dennis said:Much nicer although a bit to symetrical to me. At lesat as far as the location of each piece is concerned. Have you decided on any plants or an overall "shape" for hte tank. By shape I mean triangular, mound, concave, etc.
Thanks I had missed that post. Tonight I will try a layout where the center is open more by rotating the large piece as you mentioned and moving it to the far left or right and try the other/others on the opposite end.dennis said:Give yourself a bit of credit You are just starting out. As for hte shape check out this thread by Tsunami http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=42 I found it to be very helpful.
