    Going for a very similar look to what this was when it got taken down prematurely. :Blah:

    Here is the parting shot of when it was taken down in Phoenix, AZ about 3 weeks ago.

    A few weeks (maybe a month) later, here is the new dry lay out. The two large rocks are not final placed and IDK if I will take the 2nd rock out completely, or smash it up and place some smaller rocks in there, I think the smaller rocks might be too much of an imbalance, so I might just go for more planting space.

    The 2 main rock look not very similar, why don't you use 3 as the Iwagumi layout?

    I don't know what I am going to do with the 2nd larger rock yet.
    If I were going for Iwagumi, then I would mostly only plant a ground cover with a stem plant or two max. With the plants I plant to use to grow rather full, it will eclipse most of the rocks that I put in it, just not the largest one.
    IDK if breaking up the 2nd rock is worth it for this reason.
    I also don't have that rock sitting in there in any particular way.
    I just put it in there for now to get it off the floor after cleaning up my mess:proud:

    i think you should use 1-3 plants, to keep it simple, maybe like iwagumi, usee D. Hairgrass, G. Harigrass, and maybe Riccia stones? again which substrate are you using?

    If this turns out like the scape you had before, it's going to be great.

    How tall is this aquarium? I really like the height (or maybe it's the good scape that makes it appear tall)...:)

    John, thanks.

    the tank dimensions are 20 wide x 18 deep x 20 tall.
    It is a fun tank to work with.

    Yep, after I sledge it it will go in my 30, this tank, then after probably some in my 90p also. I will probably farm some in one of my 20longs also along with all the other Tonina's and Erio's that I can get.

    Tomorrow is a busy day.

    HB Main St. 4th of July parade in the morning. Most of the family goes, but I might stay home and sleep in :-\

    Then there is a pool BBQ, then a night at some friends house.
    Not tomorrow.

    Working Saturday until early afternoon, then going to get the 90p, so either Sat night (if plants that were supposed to show today do, and are not soup)
    or Sunday, but IT WILL BE DONE for 100% sure.

    Though it is not really a viewing angle, it is more for depth reference.
