Dig the stone "paver" type of look you have going on in there man. This tank is very reminiscent of some of the 29's that I used to have several years ago!

Just let it start filling in; top and re-plant to form thicker groups of plants. This will be a good little system!

I would get some dwarf Sagittaria subulata, or some Echinodorus tennelus for the foreground. Just a suggestion!

I was thinking some dwarf hair grass and some moss on the wood and a clay pot with some moss on it as well.

Like the look with the pebbles. Saved the pic.

What ferts are you dosing with? The plants with some red on the far left look like they need some iron. Seachem iron cheapest here. I don't think you light is strong enough for hair grass. How about Eleocharis acicularis, or Cardamine lyrata, or Echinodorus tenellus. or Pennywort?

Easier, cheaper, and more versitile option is to get 1/2 yard of silk material. Tape it to some cardboard and then tape the board to the tank with duck tape.

Well I'm dose heavy now for about two week and have started double doseing the Pot well I cannot believe how crazy the stuff has started to grow. I hope the bottom of the plants fill in a little more. Pics to come. Hopefully the leaves do better and stop dying and the stems thicken up.
