Is that a banana plant in the middle? I am not a fan. First off its dead center and with its color and leaf shape, your eye is drawn to it immediatly. Makes the rest of the layout "very busy" looking.

You have alot of plant species spread out all of the tank it looks like. Planting in larger groupings is more powerful and also more natural.

yeah it is a banana in the middle there, i see what your saying. do you think it needs to go, or is threre somwhere else it may work? i really like the plant because it is so active. I also see what your saying about the plants being spread. i got a bunch of that Limnophilia Aromatica whick i also really love and spread it more than i should have, i think ill try and keep it all along the left side of the tank and or i may have enough to make it kind of a background? the redish purple would probably stick out nicley against that black? hmmm theres an idea. let me know what you guys think of that? then what to do with that hygro on the back right? input..... let me know what you guys think..... thanks again......

If you like the plant, then keep it . Only a suggestion. Its an unrooted plant, so move it around! It may look better if the plants are grouped more, IDK...

If you look at alot the experienced aquascapers, you will always notice that plants are always grouped. You can surely have multiple groups, but in a small tank like this, it may not look right.

Just some suggestions for you. Plants look good and healthy thats for sure!
