Well good thing i have an extra anubias on wood! its jsut that part of the wood is cut so it looks artificial, gonna need some moss to cover that up. However, the wood and plant is not very big, only about 2 inches in width, theres around a 5-6 inch gap around the center, would another sword work? Ive been itching to get a melon sword but was unsure of how it would fit in with the aquascape.
@CPFAN001: I actually have a lot of experience with spray paint, i use it on my acrylic tanks. however, the major drawback is that its permanent. The stuff i found is self adhesive, so getting it on right (lots of bubbles to work with) was the main reason it was such a pain. I bought 19" height and 3ft wide, but the store gave me like 24" high and 4ft wide, which is nice, but cutting it to the right height evenly was a terrible ordeal, cutting it right alone took 30 minutes. In case I ever change my tank and would require a different background, this solution allows me to change it if necessary. Also with spray paint, for it to adhere properly, i would have had to scuff up the glass so the paint sticks properly and that would take around the same amount of time I spent applying the background. Although i have to admit, its a lot more fun when painting, on one of my acrylic tanks, i managed to get a deep royal blue coat, dabbed with magazine and then coated in black. Looks a little like those street spray-paint textures you can find.
