Update. I just had to change the sand in the tank. sand was turning green. It look pretty bad so I just replaced it with ADA Mekong sand. Darker, at least it will not turn green.lol. I think it looks better with white sand though.

Dayum! That sure is a lot of Bucephalandra in there! Buces make an awesome foreground carpet. It'll be the next big thing.

I like the white sand better too.

Glad you like the tank. The plant on the right side of the tank is a Buce species. I will check what location and let you know.
