    Hi,
    I'm preparing a new project. I bought a tank. Dimension are 115x52x45cm. The metal stand are ready. Next steps are cover, light, filtration...
    I prefer a NATURE style, and I will try to make nature environment. I have many a driftwood pieces, but I have a problem how to make a hardscape. I don't rush. :)

    I like the LH side very much plenty of interesting pieces of DW.

    The RH side looks very heavy and uninteresting in comparison to the LH side.

    If you can create something similar for the RH side, it can be smaller yet interesting, try to get it to link up with the LH side as well

    Keep it simple and by that I mean it must blend in and complement the LH side.

    If you are not sure what a poster is saying please ask more questions.

    That is a big improvement.

    I would like to suggest Right Hand side only.

    Lift it a little higher and towards the left a little too.

    Horus this is what I was thinking lifting it up and across to the left then tilting it down a little.

    At the moment it looks a little heavy is there more than one piece of driftwood in that corner.

    All you can do is try a few variations and post a photo of each one then let us know which one you prefer.

    It will be softened up with the plants.

    You have no planting space unless you only use mosses and ferns.

    I like the last one. The branch crossing helps make it 'not another pathway between 2 hills' type scape.

    Going on from what Solcielo above says about no room for planting. Are there spaces inbetween the rocks that you can add plants into?

    That is a great improvement.

    Next step is the planting, what are you thinking of using and where?
