hey more, i think its a great start. my only suggestion would be to group your plants closer in clusters to stage a focal point and also make the tank less sparce.

Not the worst, the worst would be an empty tank! :P

I agree, tis only a start. Actually, I think you'll be very surprised once it establishes and grows in!

Personally, I'd leave everything, maybe add some more of your foreground carpeting plant (I cant tell what it is, microsword? dwarf sagg? no ... Sorry if I missed it, but the small grass plant in the front) just to help it fill in more. I personally am a fan of java ferns being attached to driftwood, but the moss adds a nice touch, and both add a vertical "dimension"

When you get the chance, whats your plant list?

Thats a cool piece of driftwood. I agree with the others, It is not as bad as you think. Things will definitely look better when its filled in. planted tanks are notorious for forcing patience down your throat so you might as well get used to it lol

Looks great for the start, im sure once you get more plants and/or they grow out it will look awesome. I would say more plants though, in my opinion the heavier planted tanks give you more options for aquascaping because of the endless possibilitie
