Dwarf hairgrass would be a pretty cool foreground for a grass-lawn look. Blyxa would be as well. Combine the two on the foreground; it would look awesome, in my opinion. You should tie up your taiwan moss to a small driftwood stump on the center of your scape to create a tree-look.

I may be able to aquire a nice peice of driftwood for this tank and more hair grass
I like your ideas NoenFlux also... Only now windering if a uplift tube for air bubbles and flow would be good. or if just the air bubbler would be enough...

So far I LOvE the cermaic pebbles, does not cloud the water or anything.
Building a uplift tube/filter so this tank can have a sleek filter and better water flow.
I hope the seeds that are planted are actually HC because that would look great carpeted...

what speices of Rasborias are the smallest? I would love to add 3 tiny fish to this and 1 cherry shrimp, no snails If I can help it.
