so, i just noticed my friend's saltwater tank
and how in a saltwater tank, you stack live rock
and grow corals and other invertebrates off of the rock

i was thinking that i could do the same thing
in that i could buy stones
stack them in an awkward triangle shape
and have my plants arranged throughout the stone

maybe even try to attach some moss to the stones
instead of trying to make one of those moss backgrounds

i have been noticing how flat my setup is rather flat
i have the fine gravel substrate laid out flat
with live plants planted directly in and driftwood resting on the top of the gravel...

kind of boring

what do you think?

Cool idea!!...a lot can be done in landscaping for a tank....let you imagination run with it...just be sure you leave a nice area, or areas for the fish to swim and you can watch them.

I kind of like the idea of the triangular rocks. Another thing to do with the gravel is put more gravel on the outside walls which kinda spices up the gravel and it looks pretty cool. And you could put the rocks on the outside then in the middle have the drift wood ( if its bigger but if its smaller then just move it somewhere else) \

if you were going to do this I would try to find some concrete for it, but seing as you have a smaller tank I don't know if it would work as well you can sure go ahead and try... You could even leave little caves and things in there for fry and other fish to hide?
