Thanks for the advice and the kind words!

I made some minor changes in the rock positioning and soon I'll try adding more rocks. I didn't see the "blank" space in the front of the main rock when I finished the scape, but now that you mentioned it, it's bugging me! hahah

About the fauna, I'm thinking about some Otocinclus affinis to keep the algae under control and, to add a little bit of color, to contrast with the green leaves, Hyphessobrycon amandae. My tank isn't that big, so I need to use small fishes.

About the flora. I am gonna use Glossostima or Hemianthus callitrichoides as foreground plants. I really liked the Hemianthus, but I've been told that Glosso are more newbie-friendly, so I am not sure about which one I will use. Between the rocks I intend to use Staurogyne. For the back of the tank, I am going to use Hemianthus micranthemoides, my favorite plant

I need some reddish plant to give some contrast, any suggestions?
