    Re-scaping the 40gal **Help needed**

    Going at it again!

    My 40gal tank has strange dimensions and I have never been able to nicely scape it. I was on the right the right track with this latest trial scape but there is still a lot of empty space and I don't really enjoy it after looking at it for a few weeks.

    Dimensions:
    *Will get shortly*

    Hardscape material I have to work with:
    - Manzanita branches of all sizes
    - Dragon stone (not alot)
    - River rock
    - Manzanita Root (pictured below)
    - Sand

    Plants I am going to add or can add:
    - Anubias Barteri
    - Anubias Nana
    - Crypt Wenditi brown
    - Amazon Sword
    - Wisteria
    - Tissues culture crypt (can't remember the name)
    - Anacharis
    - Crypt (I will figure out the name)
    - Dwarf Sag.
    - Flame sword

    Stock:
    Celebes rainbows and Cherry shrimp
    Plan to also add Threadfin rainbows and blue-eyed forktail rainbows.

    I will update when I get the dimensions and Crypt names

    How fun! I always love setting up a new scape. If you ever want some hands on help with setting up the tank let me know.

    Re-scaping the 40gal **Help needed**

    I suggest trying to use the height of the tank... maybe slope on one side.. and maybe youd want to get more dragon stone. If it were me, Id do like a hill of dragon stone with those branches coming down on top of the stones.... I have a hard time with big tanks as wel.. Im more of nano scaper. If you have questions Id be glad to help too

    You know what... I think I got it

    I am getting a bunch of Amazon sword and some Wisteria at the next meet so I will use those to fill in the black spots on the left side!

    Here it is after clearing up some more and the Tannins began releasing. Can't wait to get some more plants for it.
