I never had a problem or deaths with heating pads, but HAVE had faulty aquarium heaters before, with temps that soared sky high, resulting in casualties.

Hard to get the leaf look with mosses, and mosses never did well in any high light CO2 tank for me.
I'd say subwassertang would look good, but, again, same deal and since it grows slow, better off...

Hydrocoytle Japan will give INSTANT leaf, but grows very fast and will shade anything underneath. Easy to apply, and lots o trimming.

Yes, but I wouldn't stop at the base. one placed on the lower part of the "L" on the left hand side driftwood, and a couple others maybe higher up on the other may give it height and make it more...

I really like it! If it was mine, I would not over do the plants behind the driftwood, or add moss. It reminds me of a landscape-like Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, or something. (Search these places to get...

Da aching back kind :) But you need to find the ones with NO auto shut off.
It's a lot safer than an aquarium heater. The heat will never soar and fry your fish.
Also, for smaller aquariums only....

Sweet for a little girl tank.
Still looks classy and not pre-school.

You have to be careful because some of the craft woods are treated with sealers and sprays. That being said, I found some really nice pieces cheap in Hobby stores that carry a floral section. You...

Blow up that photo, and tape it to the back of your tank. Done in seconds.
No really, first two answers are on the mark. It's not a difficult scape.
Hard part is keeping it in a dark room so the...

Hmmm. I'd have to see it grown out more. I'm sorta favoring the other pic. Everything looks like it's "hugging each other" too much. Or a pile of laundry. Things can change with a little grow out,...

I think your redo looks much better.
If it was my tank, I'd ditch the moss, and center the background plants to form a pyramid type look, but that's just me. And add guppies :)
