I don't like that you replaced the anacharis, it atleast brought some depth to your tank and made it look much bigger, IMO. All my attention is turned to that big mass of plants in the middle of the tank now as well, which is a big no-no in the aquascaping world. The Vals look really out of place to me, in this tank. Where all the other plants have curves, this is just straight and totally opposite from everything else in there. My favorite look was in week four from the original post. That scape was amazing, IMO. It also followed all the rules of the aquascaping "code" and would have filled in to be amazing.
I am happy that you uprooted the fern and stuff. I missed that the first time I replied, but caught it while reading through the journal and then seen that someone already told you. Good job, it looks really good. I am wanting to get some to put on my tunnel in my tank.
All your plants look great, good job on all the research. I love this site for all the help available on here
I just think you are going to find this tank STUFFED full of plants in about 2 more months or so.
