    Almost every layout has the potential. The most important thing is: You have to like it. ;) (Btw nr.10 is cool but nr.6&7 also nice, as I said, you have to decide :) )

    Thanks! So,do you think that #10 is better even than the first one I posted? I think it's more natural and less simmetrical,do you agree? I like it,but for me to know your opinion is very important! :)

    no 10 and no 6 are best :113: at no 6 i would go for stemplants left and right behind and maybe creating a path through the wood.
    at least it s your decision, both hardscapes are really cool, my personal taste is that no 6 is more interesting, no 10 have been seen often before. so it s a choice between an established layout or something new.

    well, they both are good
    original one looks more stretched and #10 is more compact
    so it depends on the look you want to achieve. how big is the tank?

    For sure #6 is would be more original, but more complex as well. No need for beginner to try unique stuff. More important is to learn how to grow and trim plants properly. than one can work on his skills and find out his own style.

    My tank is 60x40x40 and the first wood is about 55cm long... Now I'm undecided between number 6 and number 10,I have to see them with the rocks. Flo's idea is good,but this sort of layout would be less natural,but in effect more interesting.

    If possible put #10 into the tank and take a shot - I think it will look better with some open space on the left and right, as the original (#0) might make the tank look smaller and overloaded

    There's a problem... I don't have the tank! :D I'm gonna buy it, but I'm waiting that my parents give me the necessary money... About the wood,I think that #6 looks better in photo,instead #10 is really beautiful! Tomorrow I will take some shots with the rocks.

    Hi guys,I tried a new layout with #10... I turned it a little,here's the photo:

    [​IMG]

    Do you like it? I think it's good,it's not too simmetrical and I think it's quite natural. Do you agree? The only thing I don't like is the big stone on the right,maybe I have to buy some other Drahonstones...

    It is always better to have more hardscape to choose from ;)

    I can tell you one big thing: these hardscape tests are good for you, for developing your creativity, and you can see from different angles. But, you should do this in the tank, at the final place, with substrate etc.
    (I played a lot in "dry", and after that with substrate it has become a bit different. ;) )

    @Stevo: you're right,but now I don't have the tank and I'm doing this to make an idea of the layout! :)
    @Flo: Ok,I understood! ;) But if I do it,won't the layout be too tending to the right?

    Hey!

    I have to agree to Flo:

    Not diagonal, but horizonticaly.

    cheers
    Eva

    p.s. No, it will not tend to much, but it will clear up.

    I like layout #10 except for the rocks on the right. Try what Flo suggested, it may look better.

    Is your tank going to be cube?

    Question: Are you planing on putting your wood in the centre of the tank or are you going to have it towards either side of the tank?
    In my opion I would have it off centre so it doesn't look to cimeritical.

    I want to put it on the centre,I think it's better for my layout. If i put the wood in the side of the tank,I have to change all the layout... Here's some photos,with the stone turned:
