This tank has real potential especially with those pieces of wood. I think you should move the larger piece towards the front a little, and send the other piece to the back-right a little with the longest branch pointing diagonally towards the front pane. Get rid of the slate it looks too unnatural. Good luck aquascaping with the plants. :)

thanks for the advice.the slate is there to keep the driftwood from floating.i boil it and leave in a bucket of water for 3 days but still nothing.ill atttch the slate to the bottom of the driftwood so it wont be visible.its been like 5 days i tied the moss to the wood.how long it takes so i can remove the fishing line?thanks again

You probably wont have to remove the line. Just let the moss grow around it and soon enough it wont be visible anymore.

I think it's off to a good start. What are the specs of the tank (size, lights, etc.)?

Also be careful not to bury the rhizome of anubias and java fern plants. The rhizome is a horizontal bar shaped piece that the roots and leaves shoot out of.

I like the look of it. It's nice to be able to follow an aquarium as it develops. We look forward to seeing more photos. What size is that aquarium? 46g? 70g? Is the water still cloudy, perhaps my imagination?

Coming along nicely! Are you planning any foreground plants, that's a lot gravel that's showing. The right hand side looks dark to me. I would use a little red in there to break up the monotony. Just my 2cents worth. Keep us posted, it really is interesting to see the evolution of a tank from scratch.
