Please do stone!

The stone should be coming in tomorrow. Can't wait to figure out what I will do with it.
Also thinking about ordering a large slate cave that someone on another forum makes her/himself. Still trying to figure out if I want more slate or to buy a piece of branched driftwood to add some height.

Hopefully I can make it to the store tomorrow before I go to class and maybe set it up when I get home tomorrow night. Hopefully!!

I also have a huge plant package I ordered with a ton of crypts and some stems. I think the person added double of HS about everythig because he was out of a couple of the main plants that I wanted. So I'll have a decent amount of foreground plants now :)

That sounds a like a lot of fun, creative time!

It seems like there is a lot of "rocks or wood, not both" sentiment floating around, but I think that is silly. They look fantastic together, if the layout is good.

You are going to have such a great Before and After! That should really be a contest on here.

Just got the crypts in today. I still have a ton of stems that I need to try and find room for, but I'll wait till I change substrate on sunday for that mess.

What do you guys think?

The plants in the background (left to right) amazon sword, vallisneria gigantae (tape), and crypt balansae. thinking about switching the val's and swords around when I change the substrate. but for now i was just wanting to see what everything looked like together.

I also think that they need trimmed badly, but I dont know how I should do it? I've never had to trim crypts?
