Smile Cole's attempt at a planted aquarium...

So I've always loved the planted and scaped tanks but have just recently become enthused enough to try one myself. My plants are just kind of a mess right now because I had no rhyme or reason to which ones I was going to buy... I just bought a bunch of them... I'm going to try a theme and also scaping my tank to be a lot prettier when I set up my 38 Gallon (which I just bought today <3) I just thought I'd post my attempt with my 20 gallon long before I post my larger, better, and planned one.
I also have some plants coming tomorrow that I ordered, I'm all too excited... I just looked for some plants that looked like good fillers and ended up ordering a bunch of Marsilea quadrifolia and Lilaeopsis novae-zelandiae.

Just a side note: I'm a gold-fisher... if you cant tell they're huge.. and my babies. They've TOTALLY outgrown that 20 long and just happened to do so when I decided that they need a MUCH prettier habitat! That being said, any suggestions or comments on how my tank looks, and how to make it better are very welcome!

Break up the bunch plants, plant each stem. Maybe group up some of the bunch plants in one corner 1/2"-1" apart. Time, will fill in the rest of the plants.
