ty for the feedback.
It's a labor of love (and sweat and cursing, and etc...)
Next step is to put some fish in there

Updated for August. Tank is now a little over 3 months along after flooding.
I trimmed the HC in front way back, got some bare spots now but they will fill back in a few weeks. My next task is to remove all of the ground cover on the right and replace with HC.

Fantastic!

I had to check back a page to see if you took the driftwood out, barely visible now.

originally, the right was planted in glosso which did not do well for me during the dry start phase. I added a small clump of Hydrocotyle sibthorpioides which has taken over that side of the tank.

I want to use the HC as the single ground cover for this tank and make it uniform in appearance across the front.

Ty for looking and the feedback

September update. Tank is in need of a bad trim (this weekend). I'm really liking the red coloring that's starting to take shape, will be planting more of that this weekend from the trimmings and some stuff that I am picking up on Sunday.

It's beautiful! Very inspiring. I love that foreground plant but I can see your vision of a solid foreground and it would be perfection! Someday I hope to have something as nice.
