I would try to get that windelov/fishtail fern out of the substrate. Burying the rhizome like that will make it die. I will attach it to a rock or driftwood or something. Can't wait to see this tank down the road, keep us updated with plenty of pics.

Not to rain on you parade, but the sword plant is going to take up the whole tank in no time.

You'd be better off propagating those from the plantlets that its sprouting...if you want to frag it you will have to let it get really big and wait for it to strart to split on its own, then split it...and that takes forever.

Its still going to ougrow that tank in no time.

Nice little tank. Maybe you need either at least double the thickness of your current substrate, or you need much smaller plants or stem plants.
