    I have a 5 gallon aquarium that needs to be aquascaped, [​IMG]
    The circled bit will stay, but I think turning the log on the left to go the same way as the right one may look good, but what I really need are plants.
    I need a plant that will cover the ugly filter on the right side, and I want to have some small plants next to the rocks. That’s about as far as I have thought into it. Recommend some low fert plants that you can find at places like petsmart or PetCo to make things easier for me! Thanks

    Depends on your light. Anubias may be good, attach it to the driftwood.

    If you have a good light you could try some stem plants like hornwort, ambulia, cabomba etc.

    Agreed, I would also move the left to the right. You can at that point also tuck the heater back there. There are some smaller varieties of Java fern (check liquid creations), small anubias, or bucephalandra that you can attach to the wood to cover the rest of the cord.
    Overall the wood pieces are a bit large for the tank, but I think if you move it as described it will work out well...
    I can’t actually see the filter on the right so can’t comment much on coverage.

    Also would consider mosses as well. Good choice to come to mind is xmas moss.
