Planted Tank Obsessed

Regarding stocking/planting, I'm still sticking to my plan from the picture in the first post for the most part. I am going to add some more mini fissidens to the stones, and add another large wad of java ferns to the ugly looking stone in the back center. The goal is to create a bush of java ferns to be the focal point at the off-center right side of the tank (gotta maintain that golden ratio!) since the size of the driftwood prevents me from placing it to be the focal point. Ideally, the tank should be 12" wider on the left. Oh well. I'm still not quite sure what I'm going to put in the space to the left. My PAR meter shows around 30-40 par there at my desired overall dimming level, so it can't be a high light plant.
Stocking will still what I had planned from the first post, but I will probably add some more pygmy cories as I think my current school might get a little lost in a larger tank.
Thats a good point, AnotherHobby, I didn't think about that. As is, the tank is already a PITA to scape due to the height. It always seemed out of place to me, but I couldn't bear to break off a chunk of the center driftwood. Away it goes! More room for anubias petite, heh.
