Looks great! I like the second one, as well. Much more natural arrangement.

I have a love of both HC and Belem. The Belem is a more natural, softer feel, and the HC grows so tight, there is a...

Thanks for the suggestions, guys. I think I'll just fill it in with the lilaeopsis and maybe bring in some hydrocotyle sibthorpioides as well. I'd like to keep that side open and simple.
