Before and After

You guys are probably getting sick of me but I just went and bought new lights, a few plants and some drift wood. I did a little research on the rule of thirds and as its my first time its not perfect... I may have to do a little re arranging but WAYYYYYY better than what I had before. Anyway, Check it out!

Nice , A LOT BETTER! I have one idea though, if you can find a piece sort of like that one put it on the other side. So there will be like a canyon in the middle it would look pretty cool. Just a thought though

I would switch the moss balls so that the larger one is in the corner rather than the other, smaller one. Or, move it where the one on the far right is but to the left enough that it is slightly (1/4) hidden by the driftwood. That's just me, though! Looking much better!

Thanks Tankman, I also thought about putting sand down the middle. Didnt want to make a mess of it though : / Im still a newb at this stuff haha

And thanks for the suggestion Flint, i think ill be moving more than that around on my next water change day. I still feel like everything is too crowded.

If you want sand down the middle, just load the rinsed sand into a water bottle, let it fill with water and turn it upside down, moving it where you want sand in the tank. (:

O that would be AWESOME! Having to pieces of driftwood (one on each side), than having a white sand "stream" down the middle. It will be like the the grand canyon lol. Also with the water bottle idea. Dont flip it over, leave it in the bottle and bury the bottle(so you only see the white sand). Cuz the flourite WILL mix with the sand.
