ughhh, I wish I could do everything you are saying here, but my parents won't let me buy all those things. I am thinking about removing the river rocks and keeping the driftwood. This picture is an old picture and the water isn't this yellow anymore, but the scape is the same. The wood when put upright can make an H shape and therefore adding height. The plants that I am getting are from Petco or Petsmart (only lfs near me) How is this scape?JLAquatics said:Hi there, I just have another idea for you!
It is a little hard to follow right now, but I will try my best to explain.
The brown in the middle is a large arched piece of wood that is the same type as the two pieces which you currently got.
Tan is dragon stone. A 20 lb kit would work really nice for your setup and the stone is inert as well.
Aqua is a smaller plant fit for the foreground. However, if you don't have the setup equipped for this then just omit that.
Dark green circles are Cryptocorynes. They are easy plants to care for and look great!
Blue are various easy stem plants you could choose to fill in you aquascape with green, such as the Bacopas, Wisteria, or even Water Sprite.
Light green is the large plants like Swords or Vals for the very back of the tank.
Bonus: You can tie Java Fern and Anubias to the arched wood just like marmaa mentioned for extra texture, both plants are very easy and look nice.
Yea, I was thinking about them too.JLAquatics said:My recommendation for filling height is finding a plant called Water Wisteria. They are sold at both Petsmart and Petco. You can buy one for 5-6 bucks and propagate it later on to fill in your setup. Buying fast growing large plants is your best bet for what you are looking for with filling in the scape.
Yup! Pearlweed will go crazy under good conditions. They can grow nice and tall in a nice bush or you can trim it as a carpet.LHAquatics said:My lfs has some pearlweed that I really liked. Can I put them somewhere?
