Here are some thoughts I have about changing my tank a little. I plan to get CO2 in a month or so. I was thinking of having a diagonal line of blyxa to the corner from the back corners of the driftwood and the replace all the stems in the back Rotala Coralata (i think that is how it is spelled) or another red stem. Please leave any other ideas thank you.

Looks nice! It'll look really cool when you get the plants to fill in.

Why so much filtration?
