Ornamental Gravel

Natural coloured gravel and black gravel give the best results. White gravel can be used occasionally but it is harder to keep clean and more difficult to produce a natural themed aquascape. For brightly coloured fish, black will bring out the colors while lighter substrate can wash them out. Take inspiration from the aquascaping page and decide what will be suited to your design.

Drift Roots

Drift Wood Thinner stems and the branchier arms of the driftwood make more interesting aquarium centerpieces. Half a stump lying in a planted aquarium tank has little appeal. Choosing pieces which look naturally fallen without visible cut marks add to the natural beauty. Wood with unusual bends and fronds is also perfect for applying moss and plants. An interesting idea is to have the wood coming down into the tank like in nature as if it had fallen from a nearby tree. Placing the driftwood rising up is another unusual method used in modern aquascapes. Some aquarium hobbyists have used this effect to create trees out of moss. The aquascaping guide will help deciding how to place the drift wood.
