 If  you  guys  remember  my  other  post  on  Mini  M  video  journal,  I  mentioned  I  am  about  to  start  2  nano  tanks.  One  was  there  in  that  post  (Named  it  as  Scraped  Rocks).
 Now  here  goes  the  second  one  ""Root  Shore".  Finished  the  hardscape.  Thinking  on  planting....  Most  likely  will  use  the  leftovers  from  the  other  planting  or  cuttings  from  my  other  tank.  
 
 Not  looking  to  get  some  new  plant  for  this.  Will  see  how  it  goes  Smile
 But  feel  free  to  pour  in  your  suggestions  on  plant  and  hardscape.
 
 for  now  here  is  the  hardscape  snap.

 Yes  Mortis,  its  kinda  having  blue  tint  in  that  light.  
 Anyhow,  I  am  planning  to  change  that  light  soon  I  find  a  better  one.
 
 Looks  like  finding  light  is  a  tough  job  for  nano  setups.  I  checked  in  like  4  -5  LFS  non  have  a  good  light  for  this  nano  setup  Sad

 Hi  Alman,
 
 Few  suggestions  -  
 
 Wood  -  The  top  end  of  the  wood  should  be  above  the  water  surface  if  you  want  to  give  a  trunk  and  its  root  effect.  the  base  is  giving  a  good  root  look  however  would  suggest  that  you  tie  a  similar  looking  wood  which  is  straight  enough  to  continue  the  "trunk"  part  of  the  wood  and  goes  beyong  water  surface.  If  you  cannot  find  another  piece  of  wood,  alternate  option  is  to  raise  the  substrate  level  or  opt  for  a  tank  with  half  the  height  of  current  one...first  two  options  are  better  than  having  a  tank  half  the  size  of  current  one   Very Happy  
 
 Rocks  -  All  of  the  continuing  rocks  can  be  arranged  a  lot  more  compact  and  close  to  the  wood....all  of  them.
 
 Flora  -  as  simple  as  HC  in  front  and  parvula  at  the  back  would  do  great....choose  something  in  similar  line  and  should  look  great!!   Thumb Up  
 
 good  luck!!
 
 Cheers,
 Binesh

 Thanks  Binesh  for  that  detailed  suggestion!!!
 
 Actually  I  had  that  long  trunk  part  in  this  wood,  but  cut  that  off.  I  want  to  have  a  cut  tree  look...  So  had  to  cut  it  out.
 I  want  to  make  scape  which  should  show  how  the  cut  tree  surroundings  will  look  after  some  time  of  cutting.
 Some  thing  like  this..
 
 
 
 thats  the  reason  for  cutting  the  trunk  part  of  the  wood.
 
 Planning  to  tie  some  willow  moss  in  the  root  area  and  here  and  there  in  that  cut  part.  
 other  areas  will  see  :)
 
 I  want  the  sand  also  to  be  visible.  I  do  not  want  to  cover  the  carpet.

 You  may  have  challenge  in  creating  depth  and  perspective  in  the  tank  with  the  trunk  chopped  off  and  if  not  carefully  choose  the  plants
 
 Cheers,
 Binesh
