In the current (Dec 2012) issue of TFH there is quite a good article on aquascaping. I scanned the relevant section, this may be of some value. The author, whom I do not know, seems very well versed on natural planted tanks. But for the present purposes, his suggestions on design are very good.

While reading this article, I am a little mixed. I have been hearing from many people to place the larger river rocks together, while this article states to place 1 larger rock on one side and another on the other side of the tank, with the main focul point (being my driftwood piece) staying put. What do you all think?

By the way I am referring to the 2 river rocks on the right side.

I am also thinking, I should scoot the driftwood piece a little closer to the center...but not much, thoughts?

LOL...I think I am done asking all the questions now. I have really received some great ideas, and enough for me to go off on. I suppose part of it should be my own creativity, so I will leave the rest to that. Appreciate everything everyone, big help!

Jut added a smaller piece of driftwood to offset the larger piece. Also added an extra river rock. Coated the other piece of manzanita branch with java moss. Also added an extra healthier amazon sword.

Another thought, always remember that when the plants have grown in as they will, the hardscape is much less "obvious" to the viewer. This is on a good path.

Yes. Right now, you look at the tank and you see the wood and rock, it stands out. But when the plants have filled in, they will be the more prevalent items, and you will see them first, with the wood and rock just sort of there, tyeing it together.
