    Looking for suggestions on natural decorations. I would like to take out the cave in my 50 gallon tank that my loach hides in and replace it with some natural things to hide behind. What I have now is a log that will be planted with one anubias coffeefolia and one nana petite, along with a java fern. I also have a white rock thing (pictured below).
    I also plan on getting dwarf hairgrass and lemon bacopa that will be planted in the substrate.

    The cave is about 11 inches wide. I'd like to find something to put where the cave is now. The cave is on the right side of the tank, the white rock on the opposite side (both near the wall) and the wood will be upright in the center. I am also considering replacing the white rock.

    I have thought about rocks and driftwood lain down.
    Also feel free to suggest ways to aquascape this! I'm not very good at aquascaping.

    Sorry if this is kind of everywhere. :l bfb49a525a6904b0aa0661f141798648.jpg 351eb0daa66e8cff4c4a8e0162a8ec0a.jpg f22e80eff070b31523f24ac47acc038e.jpg

    @KinsKicks is good with aquascaping but Amazon Swords and jungle Vallisneria are good.

    I was looking at Dragon stone. It's very pretty! Kind of expensive, but I may buy some.
    I was thinking more along the lines of a pile of cholla wood logs.
