This is my new tank set up but something just feels a bit empty or off to me. I can’t explain it but something is missing. It feels a bit too one dimensional if you know what I mean?
Any suggestions on how to make this tank come together?

I think it looks lovely as it is, but you could always find a nice piece of wood to fill the gap in the middle and add some height? You could attach some java fern or anubias.. Even moss if you fancied it. But I think it's lovely as is

and thank you! ?

Redmoor would look nice? Have a Google 'aquarium wood types' and just see what takes your fancy... You might have to order some online as the shops are often hit and miss... But then you don't always know what you're getting online ?

Floating plants? Red root floating plant is my favourite at the moment, it didn’t look much when I first got it but it is growing into its name.

I also liked frogbit (I think) it had the most beautiful ‘fluffy’ roots hanging down, but it didn’t like being dripped on so didn’t so so well...?

Yeah exactly! That’s why I’m reluctant. I might have to travel a bit further to another shop and see! I think wood will bring it together. Thank you :)

Yeah I want floating plants but I don’t want ones that hang down too much. I bought some online once and it made my tank look really dirty and horrible :(
Are there any floating plants that are medium size?

Sorry that didn’t make much sense lol. Just shut king bigger than duckweed?.
Okay thank you! They look really nice and healthy!
Definitely bigger than duckweed!

Salvinia is another good floating plant, although it’s more on the small side. I do find that frogbit is more hardy than Salvinia. :good:

Okay thanks. I’ll have a look on eBay. They’re pretty cheap on there
