    I drew up what I would like my aquascape to look like. Any tips and opinions would be great. I also need a centerpiece for that circled spot with question marks. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Edit: Got a warning about the amazon sword getting too big. I will search for other options.

    Amazon Swords do get large, but are extremely easy to prune. I have two in a 2.5 gallon. They need to be cut back, but they're doing great.

    I just worry that it'll take up the whole thing and get too tall to prune back enough without it looking sad. I found the Echinodorus 'Oriental' sword - looks like it's a bit smaller and may work better.

    Nice scape :) Can you also post a drawing of the plan so that we can be more helpful?

    Stocking plan? TexasDomer is helping me with that right now. A nice school of micro-rasboras, a trio of endlers, and a bunch of cherry shrimp is what it will most likely be assuming aquabid still sells it all by the time I have everything set up.
    Or do you mean something else? My apologies if it's obvious.

    No not the stocking, the plan view of your aquascape.

    Do you mean a view from above? If so I need to draw a view from above. Might take a while.

    Yes a view from above. It will also help you understand the composition in a better way and make improvements as desired.

    Here is a very, very rough drawing of it from above. The driftwood tree at the top would be a bit more to the left, but it's pretty close.

    I would move the wendtii to the space with the question marks and put a stem in its corner.
    A smaller sword is perfect, but I feel like you might want some height somewhere, hence the stem in the corner :)

    Okay, that sounds good! I'll find a smaller plant to put in its place. Thanks!
