 Beautiful  Scape.  What  plants  are  u  planning  for  this  tank?  Make  a  triangular  aquascape  in  this  aquarium.  Use  tall  plants  in  the  back  of  wood  and  decrease  height  to  right  hand  side.

 Hi  Tirtha,
 
 The  scape  is  looking  very  nice.  A  suggestion  and  a  couple  of  questions:
 
 -  The  three  rocks  (one  in  front  of  the  wood  and  two  in  the  open  space)  look  like  they're  too  evenly  spaced.  Maybe  you  could  move  them  around  a  bit  or  add  a  few  smaller  stones  to  break  that  symmetry  up.
 
 -  The  rocks  look  they're  embedded  pretty  deep  in  the  substrate,  won't  they  be  hidden  by  the  foreground  plants  eventually?
 -  I'm  also  curious  about  the  reason  for  arranging  the  wood  so  that  the  branches  turn  downwards  instead  of  upwards.
 
 Waiting  for  the  next  update  in  this  journal   Thumb Up

 Tirtha,
 Scaping  is  very  personal  aesthetics  so  mine  will  differ  from  yours  I  am  sure.  But  still  consider  the  folowing  lyout....tilt  (if  you  can)  the  driftwood  so  that  it  is  more  vertical.  That  is  currently  the  45degree  slope  created  by  the  driftwood  (left  side)  can  it  be  made  more  erect..say  close  to  90  degrees.  I  think  with  this  scape,  the  left  side,  beyond  the,  wood  would  look  a  bit  empty.  Also,  any  thoughts  of  adding  another  driftwood---a  slim  one,  that  ca  almost  reach  the  surface  if  not  portrude  out  :-)?  (You  know  where  to  find  such  a  driftwood  if  you  need  one  Chuckle  )
 
 Btw,  saw  from  you  post  someone  is  interested  in  moulded  tanks...I  have  two  which  I  am  planning  to  exchange/sell.  You  can  ask  him/her  to  contact  me.  One,  2.5  feet  one  is  empty  and  ready  to  go

Wow!  looks  like  another  stunner  on  the  way,  cant  wait  to  see  the  finished  tank.
 
 Those  are  some  nice  rocks,  you  sure  you  picked  them  up  from  roadside?                

 
 Thanks  bro!  I  am  lucky  to  have  aravalli  hills  nearby.  So  lots  of  nice  rocks  you  can  find  here  in  nature.  I  have  a  pile  of  these  kind  of  rocks  kept  outside  of  my  flat,  weighing  between  10kg  to  50gm.   Smile

 Thanks  frank.  Don't  worry  about  those  green  threads.  Super  glue  drops  and  moss  will  take  care  of  it.

 This  gonna  be  a  triangular  scape  for  sure.  I  have  finalised  the  plants  list  for  Back  and  fore  ground.  But  not  sure  about  the  left  hand  side  mid  ground.  Will  take  some  time  to  finalize  the  plants  list.

 Thanks  Vimal  for  the  inputs.
 
 1.  You  are  right.  The  rocks  at  the  open  space  looking  symmetrical  though  they  are  positioned  at  different  layer.  May  be  the  height  of  the  rocks  became  same.  Will  work  on  this  for  sure.
 
 2.  You  took  the  words  from  my  mouth.  Completely  agree  with  you.  Need  to  pull  up  the  rocks  a  bit  so  they  will  not  be  covered  with  HC  eventually.
 
 3.  I  tried  to  make  a  scape  where  the  wood  will  resemble  to  an  uprooted  tree  or  a  tree  which  has  grown  in  a  slope  and  bent  downwards.  Sometimes  in  nature  we  see  these  kind  of  trees  at  the  bank  of  rivers  or  pond.   Smile

 Bappa  Da,  I  didn't  want  to  make  the  branches  pointing  upward  thats  why  keep  the  slope  low.  Why  don't  you  drop  in  today  evening  and  take  a  look.
 
 Thats  Ashok  Sir,  who  is  looking  for  a  tank.  Will  let  him  know  about  it.  But  what  happened  to  our  Rio  Negro  plan?  Aren't  we  setting  it  up  in  that  same  moulded  tank!!

 I  thought  as  much,  was  asking  because  the  wood  looks  a  little  too  fragile  to  look  like  a  root.  It  may  not  fulfill  the  look  you're  going  for  but  I'm  sure  it  will  create  some  interesting  contrast  of  dark  areas  in  your  tank  once  you  put  some  plants  on  and  around  it.

 Thanks  for  the  input.  As  of  now  the  rock  and  the  substrate  is  making  too  much  of  contrast.  Just  let  the  plants  in.  If  required,  will  remove  the  rock.
