    Padres.

    Its not actually an Aquascape all I can see is a few pieces of DW close to central an some smooth pebbles.

    What are your intentions with this tank plants and inhabitants?

    Hi Padres

    Have to agree with Keith, looks like you have put a piece of DWin middle of tank, then thrown a few pebbles around it, about half the vertical height has nothing in it.

    If your happy with it that's all that matters OFC

    I think we are thinking what you want to achieve as Keith says. If it’s just a nice decorative relaxing pebble themed look,as often seen with fancy goldfish or a single fish that’s fine,but if it’s a nature,biotope or habitat related community tank it needs more planning.Seen loads of examples were pebbles are used in stream,river aquascapes for danios,white clouds or certain catfish with a little help from the guys on here it could be a option,most on here would agree it’s often easier and more natural looking with one colour of pebble.Its your aquarium though

    This is one of the reasons I prefer to work in a Mock Tank its far easier to try many variations of your thoughts until you get the best your can with the materials you have and naturally your Budget.
