I think that that new Rotala sp., Rotala mexicana 'Goais' or something of the likes, would be pretty cool. Glosso and Blyxa would be neat in this tank as well.
I get what your saying on the driftwood. Ill go out this weekend and see if I can find something with more character and a bit smaller.

How many bags did you use? Im wondering how much i need to order
The size of the driftwood is one of reasons I didn't add any rocks. If I find another piece on the river that I like I may incorporate some rocks into the scape.

I only used one bag of Amazonia 9L. It was plenty but if you want some more dramatic slopes you might want to get the 9L and one of the smaller bags. Make sure you get the Power Sand to go under it. That stuff is really neat.
