How Should I Go About Aquascaping My 37 Gallon Tall Tank?

    This tank is so, so tall. The dimensions are 30 in L x 12 in W x 22 in H.

    I'm so used to setting up smaller tanks (10 gallons and 5 gallons to be specific). I'm struggling with design ideas for this new tank because of how tall it is. How do I make it look more balanced?

    The only thing I can think of is if I get large pieces of driftwood to stand up maybe in the middle to mimic a tree or something, with java moss or other plants attached to it. Otherwise, I'm really not sure what to do.... As I still want there to be enough swim space for my fish one day.

    Any ideas?

    I tend to place taller things in the rear, and shorter up front.
    Typically, nobody enjoys looking over a tall item to find a fish in the shorter plants behind.
    You can be extremely creative, this is your chance! Remember, whatever you do to scape your tank can never be wrong, it's supposed to be fun :)
