had another little move around! I felt that the whole thing was lacking some driftwood to set the look off. I know there is a lot going on in there, and most of the time less is more but this is the one and only tank I can have for now, so my first instinct is to just keep adding stuff, and tweaking it etc. it will probably never BE right.

So the major change was adding the two bits of driftwood, avoiding the mopani! have had issues with this wood before. this is just standard stuff I think, not sure what its called?

The cannon you may ask.... my mrs wanted it, its the only input she has been allowed to have and I quite like it even though I am pretty much anti plastic fake stuff in tanks, the more natural the better in my opinion. it provides quite a nice route for the fish, and a place to hide if need be. i have literally run out of room on the substrate, had to take the rocks out that have been in there since I started it. no room. and where it is now is the only place it will fit. I quite like the creeping jenny around it though!

@jennesque I love purple/red plant. if it survives in my water then I will be buying a few more, Im thinking of replacing the pampas grass type plant front right with one of those red plants to balance it out. that thing I have in there at the moment I don't think is a true aquatic plant, even though its lasted a good couple months. I'm not overly keen on it.

Got a super lush specimen of a large amazon sword back left. such a nice plant. hope it stays that way.

Anyhoo, heres a couple pics of how it looks with the addition of the driftwood.

If you worry you die, and if you don't worry you still die..... so why worry?

Very nice. I like this arrangement a lot more.

Maybe turn the cannon so you can see the side of it? Put the end of the barrel resting on a rock? That way fish can go underneath it?

I think a nice anubias would go well in that tank.
