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.

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.

Lovely, MFK! I really enjoy your system, though that type of set up ended up killing the hobby for me. You would get it almost "perfect," you could enjoy it for a few days, and then you had to hack it. The worst was trying to time all of the growth rates perfectly, as often, I would be able to get anywhere between 75-90% plants pruned so they would all look great, and then have two or three groups of other plants that would be either "too tall" or "too short." I was only able to get the tank looking "prime" a handful of times.
That's a beautiful aquarium.

Most recent picture before the major trim.

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.

Starougyne will survive the cories. Gloss might if you buried it deeper.
It would also look nice contrasted in this tank, not a troublesome weed like HC.
2 others: H. tennellus red and then the dwarf true sag. Hygro araguaia also.
All nice easy to care for and well behaved.

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

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.
