Been a while but I think you stems are going to shade and overtake your carpeting plants. I'd move the red stems to the back left corner of the tank tehn you can trim and shape them.

Rebooting...

I like the rock work, but I agree with the above comment about shading.

Fantastic job on your DSM. I agree with the two previous posters about moving the red plants back further. Everything will come together better and your carpet will look amazing.

What's the best way to do that? The plants have already rooted very deep!

Yank 'em out! Try not to break any roots. Fortunately, you don't have any fish waste to disturb.

Won't that disturb the Monte Carlo carpet ? I'm a bit nervous about a landslide or ruining my scape :s

Oh it almost certainly will. But it's better to do now than later.
