Bad collectoritus tank (20 long)

It's just like the title says. I've always had collectoritus and no matter what I do to reduce the species I have I always end up rebuilding my collection. This tank currently houses over 30 species and I keep wanting more.

Lol, your 20 long reminds me a lot of mine, which I believe is due for an update.

Haha thanks guys. I'm actually trying to avoid red and I removed all hardscape to make more space for plants :/ I sort of want to rip out the Utricularia carpet for room to grow erios...

I dont really know anything about scaping and stuff cause Im a noob but I think it would be nice if you added some more depth(foreground and background plants). In the picture (it probably is different in real life though) It looks like the plants are in a straight line.
