    It is certainly different, with that big piece of driftwood and a few big rocks.

    All of that combined with the substrate it will certainly use up a lot of your water capacity.

    Can you tell us what you are thinking about for the remainder of your tank.

    Hallo!

    Der hardscape ist beeindruckend! :)
    (The hardscape is impressive!)

    Just one thing, it's just my opinion of course, :) but I find that something is unbalanced in the background on the right hand (the corner with the logo)! I don't know why, the two rocks? Maybe it's just me! Just my opinion of course! ;)

    Hello guys. Thanks:) und vielen lieben dank;) What plants should I use, I do not know exactly. The stones on the right side are only temporary, so the cat litter does not slip down. There are still many details. It is only a rough draft, which I designed in 20min.

    Liebe Grüße Felix :)

    Hi Felix, Plants Ground cover HC Cuba--Monte carlo
    Where the two stones are RH side Some Staurogyns repens And at the back corner behind the DW some Hydrocotyle trip to drift out from behind and up will need some trimming to keep a nice shape though.
    On the DW Some Anubias and some Hygrophila pinnafida for a splash of colour
    At the Back LH Side behind the DW ?? Some stem plants if there is room ??

    I will vote for pinnatifida on this tank any day of the week! Dont ask me why but for me the wood is begging for that plant with riccardia growing all over it! Bit s.repens on the lhs with some dwarf parvula here and there..base with some anubias petit! Ooh exciting times!

    Hey.
    Have just made my order ready.

    Can ever make few details.
    Lighting: 2 × Dennerle Nano Light
    Filters: external backpack filter
    Substrate: glass garden environment soil
    Planting:
    -Helanthium Bolivianum 'quadricostatus'
    -Helanthium Bolivianum 'Latifolius'
    -Staurogyne 'Bihar'
    -Cryptocoryne Crispatula var. Tonkinensis
    -Spiky Moss
    -a little bit Hydrocotyle sp. tripartita
    -maybe Microsorum pteropus petit

    It should look wild at the end, but also natural and calm to the eye of the beholder.

    Liebe Grüße Felix :)

    I like it very much its well laid out plus plenty of interesting spots to hold your attention, my only comment is on the lighter gravel I would consider scattering a few small chips of the red rock or more low plants.

    Do you know what percentage of water is taken up with the heavy hardscape?

    Hi Felix! Sehr shön!

    Just one question: black gravel and white gravel aren't going to blend each other?

    It will not be long before you will have a very good plant cover.
