thanks.

I want to fill in the rest of the foreground with HC and maybe add one or two more varieties of stem plants in the background. I also kind of want a red tiger lotus plant.. just because i've never had one before.

The Ohko stones are two different colors; the ones on the right are more red whereas the ones on the left are more white. Pretty unique I guess.

thanks for the comments.

@vadim - there are 3 moss balls, 2 are made of peacock moss and one is made of taiwan moss. They are just moss tied to a bioball and then tied down to a small fragment of rock which i buried in the substrate. I can't wait until it grows out

What did you use to tie your moss on? A foam ball or something?

What type of moss is dark green under the rock?

That dark green moss would be fissidens fontanus. It's not as dark anymore though. It was only that dark because of some sort of algae I'm guessing. The new growth is a lighter green, though still not as light as the floating balls of moss.

I got a shipment of plants that should be coming later this week. I'll update with pictures after I plant.
