10g SS CRS tank (update, sort of, 2-13-11)

This is my other 10g tank which for the time being is just growing out plants to supply my 55g with when it is set up. At the time this one is in a spot where i can't take pictures of it, but it looks nothing like the first pic anymore. The plants are literally coming out of the top of the tank. It will eventually have manzanita wood

TANK DIMENSTIONS/STAND:
standard sized 10g tank from Petco. De-rimmed. Stand is DIY that holds my 2 10g tanks

LIGHTING:
T8 48" Shop light from HD. 32W ea., 2 total. Painted the black part flat white for better reflection. Light is being hung from ceiling.

CO2 EQUIPMENT:
10# aluminum tank. Concoa 2 stage reg. Post body kit built by Yikesjason, 3 way manifold w/ 3 NV55's and 3 JBJ BC's, 6 total brass check valves. ISTA CO2 indicator. Regular nano ceramic diffuser. This set up will eventually be supplying my 2 10g's and my 55g.

SCAPE EQUIPMENT:
Slim Line background bought online

SUBSTRATE:
6L of Aquasoil

FERTZ:
EI Dry dosing and RM root tabs

FILTRATION:
Eheim 2213. Intake has a fluval sponge

FAUNA:
currently has 6 RCS and 1 CRS

FLORA:
Glossostigma elatinoides
Hygrophila corymbosa 'Siamensis'
HYGROPHILA SP. 'TIGER' (this plant grows ridiculously!)
Rotala rotundifolia
LUDWIGIA REPENS X ARCUATA
HEMIANTHUS MICRANTHEMOIDES
Cryptocoryne wendtii
Hygrophila polysperma 'Rosanervig'

I have Tropica 049 and Blyxa in the mail but not sure if it will go in this tank

can someone give me suggestions for this tank? so far it is one of my most neglected tank. you can tell by just looking at the manzanita, lol. it was simply thrown in there until it stopped floating and haven't gotten around to arranging it, for like 2 weeks now. I was thinking something along the lines of an island style setup with the manzanita branching out from the middle and the glosso fully carpeting. thoughts?

It's hard to offer a suggestion with the amount of plants you have in there. I would start be moving that fern to a corner. What plants are on the right side?

yeah that java fern monster piece is from a DW piece i was selling. It didn't sell quick enough and i didn't want the fern to die so i put it in this tank so it wouldn't die (if anyone local is interested you can have it ROAK). I mainly only have glosso/HM/LUDWIGIA REPENS X ARCUATA in there. I plan on actually scaping it soon since the wood seems to have fully water logged now.
