First, the tank in question.
Well, here is the idea...
1.(Foreground). Not to sure exactly what to put here. I was thinking maybe java moss or perhaps Sag sublata. I really like the hilly look you can get with the moss though. How would you go about it. Perhaps space out whatever the moss is on and have some kind of plant filling in the cracks. The center foreground has a question mark as I'm not sure if I should use the same plants through the whole thing. Perhaps leave the left portion with just sand?
Also, I think it would be nice to put either 2-3 banana plants or dwarf lilys and allow them to create floaters just left of the piece of driftwood which cuts position 1 in half.
2. Both of these positions are in front of driftwood(the brown things). I was thinking of using some kind of crypt. I like the looks of C. wendtii 'Bronze'. I also think that would stand out more in front of the driftwood. Possibly using 2 kinds of plants too. Would Tropica swords work for this, or further back?
3. Currently occupying this space are 2 small aponogeton crispus. This is, BTw, behind the large java fern in the photo. Whatever it is should grow tall enough to get over this and add depth. Then again, short plants here might add depth too when the viewer peers into the tank from the left. It could also be a continuation of #2
4. This is between the fake log and the driftwood piece on the right. Not ot sure what to use here. Should be short. A java fern'narrow' happened to find its way there. Should I leave it? It seems to be blocking the view of the log and the java moss attached though.
5. This area would be for one or two large(or tall)plants. I was thinking of using some kind of swordplant there. Would a red tiger lotus work? I would like whatever is there to get big enough to fill this place, perhaps nearly reaching the top.
6. This place is in the very back. Whatever grows here needs to grow tall, provide a nice background, and be tidy(it will be a pain to trim bach there). I was thinking of using giant vals back there. Would the resulting shade be bad for the plants in position 5?
Last but not least, I left the area around the branchy piece blank cause Im not to sure what to put there. Any suggestion would be great!
BTw, the scribbles in the back left say "Hygrophila augustifolia"
