I agree....it would definitely be different!

I am torn on having weeping moss vs Christmas moss on the end portions of the driftwood....I thought the weeping moss weeping down over the open area would be cool....but I am not sure

Thank you!

I have some Rotala Rotundifolia in the far right corners, with Ludwigia Glandulosa in front of it and Proserpinaca palustris ''Cuba'' along the back side behind the driftwood and I am not too sure about the arrangement of those and if they will work together. I do have some Hemianthus micranthemoides in the far left corner behind the planted Staurogyne Repens....I think what I like the most, now seeing it, is the anubias on the wood, truly a beautiful species

Neon or Cardinal Tetras

Otos

sloping on the right side depends on what sort of plants you intend to put there, if they are mid ground or taller stem plants then I would slope it, if you intend to have the ground cover plants extend to the back of the tank I would not slope it.

also you could slope the left side even more, its amazing how some scapes go almost halfway up the back of the tank and look great.

your scape is already looking good tho don't over think it

that was my second thought....now I see the scape shaping up I think the real focal piece is the driftwood with anubias (I will be putting a few more on) and having that right side completely flat with just HC across it all might look sharp
