Your going in the right direction! I really like what you've done with it since you started! I usually dont like fake ornaments in planted tanks but you've somehow managed to make yours fit in rather well! Looking good!

I just moved it today more towards the back as you can see on the last picture so i had more room in the front. The plants still looks wild thrown in i think, but i am not sure yet how to arrange them different to get more balance into the picture.
And thank for the compliment, i am really trying hard, don't have much money available for more or bigger plants, so i am trying to do the best i can with that little what i have.
Today i got some plants from a RAOK i won and they helped out a lot! Since i have a low light tank i never used any fertilizer, co2 and so on... Still debating if i should use some Flourish Excel to help the plants with more nutrients? Or if Root-Tabs would be the better choice?
That is a lot of change for four months! How many different species of plants do you have? What are they? Is this your first planted tank? I just started and want to learn.
I have Anubias Nana, Java Fern, Tropica Fern, Water Sprite, Water Whisteria, Amazon Sword, Staurogene Repens, Cryptocoryne wendtii, Dwarf Lilly, Aponogeton ulvaceus, Bacopa Carolina, Assorted Swords, Amazon Swords, Hornwort, Water Onion, Cryptocorene, Moss Balls... i think that is it so far.
It is the first planted tank i am doing myself completely
