You obviously didyour research before starting into the hobby! Congrats on a beautiful tank. May I suggest thinning out the L. Aromatica and having a group of a different stem.....smaller leaves would make the tank seem bigger. Rotala species or something

If you look at the top of the water above the end of the tube, you can see surface movement. I'm guessing it's attached to a powerhead.

Sweet, i'm liking the aromatica-in the left side, i liked the ferns and vals in the right. Don't change the stems though, they are nice and bushy looking.
