Your fish stock seems fine if the filter can keep up. I'd do something about them snails though!

A little update

Some of the crypts melted but the c. lucens seems to be doing ok. They can be seen as the group on the mid-right.

Got Ludwigia Palustris, Lindernia rotundifolia, Rotala Gia Lai from very generous member Cprash.

I need help on where to plant all the stems.

Random stem log:
Hygrophila polysperma Overgrowing emersed site for info
Rotala rotundifolia?
Hygrophila corymbosa 'Angustifolia or Hygrophila sp. ''Araguaia''
Polygonum sp. 'Kawagoeanum' - (from Alan Oct/Nov 2013) - TPT image image
Eichhornia diversifolia pic
