I love to see big tanks like these! Very pretty. It'll be neat to see what else you do with it.

Those white plants are Caladium Humboldtii, i was add some new plants, and change some plants place, but on big tanks; little differences will not be visible.
( hope, i can explain my self, english is very difficult for my language configuration)

Inspiring size.

I like the general layout, but is there anything you can do to reduce the 'wall of plants' look from the lobelia to the rotala in the background? You need one more mid/background layer in there...
