    Hi there! I'm by no means an expert..I think it looks quite nice. For my tastes, I would get more of three plants you have in the foreground (Blyxa I think?) and plant the foreground quite heavily with them..I think it would look amazing!

    Inspirational layout already! Very strong layout even with just the driftwood pieces. Looking forward to the next plant phase!

    My only suggestion as your plants grow is to create more depth and angles to make the layout more 3 dimensional. It could be the photo but some parts feel flat. Don't get me wrong, layout is top notch.

    Your Aquascape is very heavy and bold as its in its early days its very hard to predict exactly what it will look like when its fully planted.

    My only concern is your choice you have either 3 or 4 types/colours of rocks plus the two colours in the substrate.

    Try to remember "Less is More"

    Hi Keithgh,
    Thank you for your comments.

    You should take into consideration that the rock on the trunk is temporary to ensure the trunk in case of movement. I will have to submit its comments.

    I consider your comments for improve mine layout.


    Regards!

    I fully realised that as soon as I saw it but it also looks good sitting on that big piece of DW.

    As it ages it will look more natural you could also use it to give extra height for a low plant.

    Keith, your comment is making me rethink the decision was to remove the rock...

    What i your opinion about java moss on this rock... I think looks fine.

    Regards!

    In my opinion as long as its a low mossy type that looks natural should work.

    I suggest trying to plant more plants. Not necessarily more variety, but more of what you have. In the beginning plant as densely as possible. This helps the tank get off to a good start.

    Looks like a good trimming would help thicken it up.

    My suggestions now would be remove about 5cm of the white substrate that is against the glass and replace it with the same black at the RH side of the tank.

    Then you can add more of the same plant this will then cover all the white substrate which in time will be very difficult to keep clean.

    Finally there will be no distraction in you loverly aquascape.

    Can you fill in your Country and location in your Profile please.

    That certainly looks a lot better than your previous photos.

    Thank you very much for your comments Keith.

    It has certainly been an improvement and stabilization aquarium that began in May 2015.

    I hope to continue to provide regular updates.
