  • Unintentional Rescape

    I was netting a sick fish out of my tank last night and unintentionally tore everything up trying to get to it. I had to pull most of the driftwood and rocks and caves out to catch the little guy. So, while they were out I decided to trim some plants and rearrange. Not sure I like it, to be honest, but I wasn't happy with it the other way either.

    I had 2 large sword plants blocking the filter posts and one in the back right corner before. Their roots were overtaking my tank, so I pulled them out, trimmed one and put it back in. Now it seems kinda bare to me. I also removed my oto's fake cave which I'm pretty sure they're not happy about. I left the coconut one in there.

    Any thoughts about which looks best or how I can make it look better? I was trying to free up some ground space since I have a lot of corydoras.

    Both look great. The first one is more symmetrical so that's the one I'd go for lol.

      Nice. The varying heights in the plants took more natural.

        They both look good to me but I also like the fuller look. With your green thumb, it will fill in in no time.

          If you give it a little while I am sure it will fill out, which I why I like the first one more. They both do look good though :-)

            That's what I miss the most, and I assume my otos do as well. I have some other plants I can move from other tanks too if I want. My 20 gallon is pretty full.

              I kinda like the first, but I also like how the second give the tank a central focal point to it. Wonder what it would do with mirrored sides....
