Looks good. You can use rocks or some kind of weight to anchor the driftwood to the bottom. What kind of fish do you have inhabiting your aquatic environment?

Atm I have
10 angels
4 gold severums
3 tiger barbs
3 Bolivian rams
6 columbian red fin tetras
2 plecos

The fish will be moved around this weekend. Iím getting a 200g thatís gonna take most of the fish in and Iíll leave my 90g plants.

As far as my driftwood I just got it 2 days ago so maybe still needs time to sink? Iíll get some rocks worse case scenario I appreciate that input. Iím semi new to plants so please bare with me haha.

We are all new to something. I'm finishing up in the initial cycle of a new 125G tank and also relatively new to planted tanks.

looks good and lots of possibilities! good choice on plants!
here are my comments:
1) tiger barbs and angels do not go together. when the angels grow and become slow, they become easy targets for the barbs.
2) I haven't had much luck with plecos in planted tanks. Their body has a very rough surface and they thrash it side to side. If they swim by any plants, they usually destroy it. If you really want to have the plecos and plants, make user the plants are not in their home territory.

have fun

Pleco moves to other tank with no plants,

Will probably end up setting a 40g breeder under my 90 for my angels. Thank you for that info I had no idea, so far theyíve been doing well for about 10 months but my angels arenít that big yet. (But are big). I added some more fish to the 90g canít wait for the fish to relax and start showing.
