Aquascaping suggestions for my 50...

Any suggestions for this aquascape? It has been very, very carefully planned and executed. Do you think that the Hygrophila difformis in the front right should have a more prominent role? Which species would you suggest for filling up the empty spaces?

I think the stem plants need a little time to fill in

Which empty space would that be?

Trim, trim the jungle. Move tall plants to the back, shorter ones to the front. That way you can develop some kind of depth. After that, post another pic.

I think some floating plants in the upper right corner would really help to fill the tank in.

My uncle would love this tank, He has been telling me to let all my plants grow, and to plant stems right against the front glass.

Looks like there might be some space still under the Hygrophila, an Anubias, with it low light needs, should slot in there well.

Are you sure the lower half of the stem plants aren't dieing off on the left side! My suggestion is to remove some plants, prune the top off others and replant in a more organized way.
