If it was me, I'd just stick with one type of rock - either one on the left, or the two on the right... doung so will create unity in the scape, and you cpuld fill in the gap by using driftwood - once again, stick to one type.

If possible, I would suggest getting an external filter (like a canister or HOB. This will allow more room in tue tank for scape, as well as swimming space.

I'd also fill up the aquarium a little more.... looks a bit empty!



But in saying that, its very good. Once you trim your plants, it would look even better IMO.

Thanks for the advice! My only question is about trimming the plants. What would be a good tool to use. I see alot of people have those curved scissors if i dont have those what might be a good tool to use? Thanks for the help!

I also like the idea and also look of driftwood and I think it would go well with either of your pants

Having them, they are amazing tools and make trimming easy. I use to use some normal everyday scissors, and switching over to the aquascaping scissors.... they make my life easier...
