Beautiful! I like the combination of the slow, curious Male Betta and the school of colorful Cardinals.

As plants grow even bigger, I would re-arrange them to create more definite groups or areas. For ex, I would move ALL wisterias to the right side, to cover up the pump, instead of having pop up one here and one there.

Even though the Betta and Cardinals contrast nicely with the green plants, think about adding one or a few red plants for variety.

Also, I love fine-leaved plants, and I would add something like a Myriophyllum or Cabomba as a contrast to the broader leaves.

But... looks good as it is too

yea. jungle does not mean put the same plant in different areas of tank. the jungle style is looking for order in disorder. 8)
