Where Should I Plant My Plants?
The plants I currently have include
- Cryptocoryne Wendtii Green
- Dwarf Sagittaria
- Flame moss
- Rotala Indica
- Marsilea Minuta
I'm having some trouble deciding where to plant these plants. I know I'm going to attach Flame moss on the piece of driftwood, but what should I plant at the base of the driftwood? I know the Marsilea is going to be in the front of the tank.
Here's a pic of my aquarium
I think you should put the plants that will be smaller or shorter at the base of the dritwood and towards the front. Anything that is going to be tall, bushy or large can be towards the back.
I believe your plants should create a depth in your tank. Shorter ones being in the front and larger ones being in the back and the sides.
I would. I'd use the driftwood and the 2 back corners as the "dense" spots. Maybe adding small pieces here and there inbetween the dense spots to fill in empty spaces. Or, you can leave the inbetween spots empty and fill them in as your trim your plants.
Finished hardscape. Do you guys think there is a better way to arrange the hardscape? Be harsh :-)
