That's a beautiful aquarium.

SERIOUSLY!!!!!!!!!!! Finally someone said it. Maybe I made the mistake of starting out with the hardest scape style.

Your tank looks amazing, you have the depth and space. once the front fills in it will be complete.

I can't agree with this more, I'm jealous. Also gotta say, I love how nice and controlled your red tiger lotus is. Mine just eventually became a massive mess and I hated it. I've since switched to N. micaranthra as I find its growth a little less chaotic.

H. araguyia would look nice with the pinnatifida though, or at least balance it out on the right side (imho). It grows pretty well too.

All nice easy to care for and well behaved.
I have been taking the small runners off the Hygro pinnatifida and replanting them in the foreground. I know it won't be popping in color like the stuff you suggested, but I think it might be worth the shot to see how it looks.

I tore out all the Cabomba pulcherrima and the Rotala macrandra. I just couldn't get either of them to look very nice. I would agree with whoever stated R. macrandra should never be truly planted, but only trimmed, remove the bottom, and replant the tops. The Cabomba was a disappointment from the beginning. It was messy, too leggy even under high light, and reacted weird to being trimmed.

I am trying Heteranthera zosterifolia, Myriophyllum mattogrossense, and Rotala sp. Vietnam. I also got some Blyxa japonica, but I already know that will grow well.

Adamson I saw this a couple days ago in person and I must say it is AMAZING.
Nice kill to death ratio btw.

Capsaicin_MFK My Cory cats decided HC didn't need to exist in this tank, so I took the rest of it out and will be starting a DSM using potting soil in a 10g. I also moved the tiger lily back a little bit to give it room to grow.
