|Aquascapeing A Bichir Tank.|
i got this 125 gallon tank thats gona be stocked with mainly bichirs and a few diff fish no plecos tho. i was thinking about some cool small river rock gravel like a 2 to 3 mm gravel and plenty of driftwood. i guess wat im asking is should i use large smooth river rocks like 10 pounds or more for a cool look. im getting floating plants and maybe some tiger loatus. they are soooooooo cool when they get nice and big. theres gona be a CO2 injector and plenty of fertalizer.

If you are looking for big river rock selection go to a landscape garden supplies they literally have it by the truck loads. Also the cost will only be a fraction of any LFS

As for the plants, if they are all either floating or have floating leaves, there's no need for CO2 injection - the plants will get all the CO2 they need from the atmospheric air. River rocks would complement your driftwood well. In nature, larger rocks tend to settle around large obstacles like driftwood.
