I've always wanted a cabomba forest but all the stores near me only carry hornwort, which doesn't look nearly as good as cabomba

That's a good looking tank, friend!
What fish do you have? Any future plans for the scape or habitants?

Looking good, I believe that plant you got in the back that you couldn't remember is either pygmy chain sword, or italian vals. Does that sound about right?
