5.5 gallon low tech aquascape

I'm getting ready to move my beta from a 3 gallon planted tank, to a 5.5 gallon planted tank. I've been searching the internet for aquascaping ideas. My current 3 gallon uses aquasoil for substrate

As I've been looking around, I really like the look of sand. I had a few thoughts. Idea one, do a sandy river bottom/ beach looking thing in the front and fill the rest in with aquasoil. Idea two, do a sand path type thing and rest is aquasoil. Idea three, just use aquarium sand\poolfilter sand in the whole thing and switch to root tabs.

I think that the first idea will look good. Here's my 5g betta build thread: Acorn's 5g Blackwater Build | Freshwater Aquarium Builds Forum | 476685

Your tank looks awesome!

With a beach- river look, I could use the crypts I have growing to get a shore like appearance. Need a slightly bigger piece of driftwood and some more anubias.
Thanks!

I think that look would be super pretty!

I think it would look pretty too. Just need to pick something that gets a little taller to hide the sponge filter and heater. Now that my banana lilly is actually rooting, maybe that will get bushy enough to do the job.
