    I think that your aquarium looked better before the modifications. you shouldn't remove that rock... it was great.

    PS. Do you have CO2?

    I second not removing the rock(s). If you wanted to plant stem plants then I would have left the rock and planted behind and/or around it. Otherwise I really like the grass, foreground plant & the overall layout . A very good first scape :star:

    I also really liked the rock for this tank. You could always take out some of the grass in the back corner and just shift those plants into the corner with the rock in it's original place.

    You could leave the hygro where it is, but put a border of some cool stones in that open area up against the hc. Let the hygro grow in over it.

    That is a great idea, I will search my closet for some cool stones, what color would be best? black or brown, flat or round?
    thanks

    I'll be honest and say when I say the first picture of the set I was unimpressed, but as the scape progress, boy did that impression change. Good scape, good plant growth, and nice shape with the substrate.

    Adding stones is a great idea. I think dark color stones with texture (not round) would suit this scape the best. It will contrast well with the smoothness of the HC and sand. Looking forward to seeing what comes next.
