Nice setup. What is the foreground plant. Also, did you consider scaping the substrate a little bit. I've always liked it when you have a bit of a slope to lead the eye to the central piece. Or maybe I'm just channeling my inner Amano.

Love the branches, do you think you'll put any moss on them?

The staurogyne and helferi are too big for the tank, and make it look dis-preportioned. Maybe over time it will grow smaller leaves if you increase the light wattage. The tank does have a natural feel though.

Wow, I love your tank. What did you use for the background? The bright yellow-orange makes the tank look really warm and homely!
