I love this tank, one of my favorites on here for sure. Everything look so bright and healthy! The poor wabi kusa ball is long gone, but it still looks nice as a lush little cube of plants. The red plants right in the center is a nice contrast with the surrounding green ones. I think if it was mixed in it would look a bit messy.
I would personally add some taller plants in the very back just to make the sloping shape of the scape more defined, but if simple is what you are going for then I think you're already got it
Thanks! The ball is still there, it hasn't lost its shape or anything; but if you mean that it's not visible, you're fully correct, yes. I agree, as the blyxa in the back takes hold in the sand, it'll grow tall and thick.

Yes, I did! It is Rotala colorata. The glosso I really haven't done anything to, and keep in mind that this is a non-CO2 tank, so I'm surprised it looks that good.

Any shrimp or snails in there at this point?
Thanks Jake! I couldn't agree any more, it's my favorite tank at the moment. There are some snails, but shrimp, no. I should really add some. Another possibility would be CPOs.
wow it looks great. i love all the color. im amazed its like that with no CO2.
Thanks Marko! Me too, it's grown surprisingly dense for such a low-maintenance tank!
What I essentially have been doing is adding all of the trimmings from the rest of my tanks weekly or bi-weekly, filling in the gaps, and just watching it grow!
