Did some hacking again today, mowed some groups down and added the Red ludwigia back, then swapped the mini A reneckii for the R. macrandra, this produces a deeper darker red and a bright vibrant red contrast, rather than overloading one side too much with one or the other shades of red.
Using 1 red plant in a scape is one level, using 2, another, using 5-7, quite another matter. I'm happy with this grouping and I know it'll last for sometime.
the Green plants, I would like more erect stem like than the prostrate downoi and Erios, but, they are nice also.
The Type 3 Erio setaceum are very nice, but touchy to do over a year or two in this tank. Need a taller tank basically. L gigentea, or what is called that, is a good replacement, but so so weedy(2x a week hackings required).
I have a fair amount of the E. hydropiper, so I could redo the foreground, but I'll wait till this group of weeds fills in and then decide.
I think I have about 2 more weeks now till the tank is where I want.
Then I'll go back to the stemy stuff and add the E hydropiper again.
After a few weeks, couple of months, I'll see where I'm at.
Likely will redo the tank/hardscape entirely at that point.
