    Hey guys now that my tank has been running for a couple of months i am really strating to rethink its layout.

    I am really looking for ideas here.

    Do i keep the polaris in the tank at the back?

    and secondly i want some advice with the aquascaping.

    I currently have rock built up on the left and right side and the back. effectively making a c shape.

    Should i keep this or should i move more towards the standard stepping up to the middle ie. inverted v shape.

    am I explaining myself well enough here.

    I currently have a frogspawn on one side and torch on the other, with some green zoos, maroon mushrooms, one gorgonia, pulsing xenia, pincushion and blue trumpet.

    Please guys looking for some really helpfull advice here.

    to give you an idea this is the shape, just moved the polaris to the back
