    Looks like you now have plenty of time to plan and get every thing ready for after you have moved into your new home.

    I have a really dumb question. But any one that has the guts to ask one is a smart person. Could I use 2 different types of driftwood in one tank if I (more like we) designed it right? Maybe I could engineer it to look like there used to be a competition between 2 large trees. A sense of chaos, I mean.
    Thanks for bearing with me!

    That is far from a dumb question in fact it the opposite a very good question.

    I had three species of wood in my 5ft tank, the bow fronted tank had 2 species of bigger species and several small pieces of another species.

    I cannot see any concerns providing all pieces are suitable for Aquariums.

    They certainly are. The piece that I want to use is quite different from from the slim wood. Infact, it's a 10 inch solid piece of dark horn-wood, and would easily take the center stage. I'll send some pics of it soon.

    Here is what I made up. Due to the live plants, I had to place the large piece back in the water, so, I won't be able to make any changes to the picture. The 3 Identical pictures are to show different exposures to different details. IMG_5384.JPG IMG_5386.JPG IMG_5387.JPG

    Over all looking good.

    Except those rocks at the front two rows a 3 & 4 looks like very carefully placed.

    Think nature and it will make a huge difference, not in rows and not siting on the substrate (planting could change rock heights).

    I see what you are talking about. That was my bad. I was going for a avalanche look on the front left side. Like rocks tumbled down the slope. Do you prefer the 1st (with the rocks for height) or this one?

    This Aquascape has a far better balance plus a very good over all shape.

    It looks very simple and basic but once you start looking into it there is little spots of interest everywhere.

    Yes, it is still my favorite. But it's hard to resist playing around! B)

    There is nothing wrong with that
    ! there is a massive difference between playing around and trying to improve on a Aquascape you like.

    My Brother has some dormant Anubias nana in his unlit aquarium that I might be able to use.

    Once you get the A nana growing it can be a very easy plant to look after.

    No go. I'll have to order some if I want it right now.
    Should I start a different thread for my current tank? It could be this spring when we move now...
