90P High tech

Greetings
For the last couple of years i've been running a simplified easy maintenance ~40 gallon with mostly ferns/anubias. I've decided to upgrade to a nicer rimless 90p size and am wanting to get back into slightly more demanding plants. The stand is open style currently but i will be adding side panels and doors in the future.

Tank: FireAqua 90x45x45cm Starfire rimless
Stand: DIY pine cabinet
Filter: Sunsun HW-302 + Sunsun jvp-110 wavemaker
Lighting: UP-AQUA U SERIES P 90CM + Dee full spectrum planted 90cm
CO2: CO2art dual stage regulator + 2.6kg kegking bottle + DIY Rex grigg style reactor
Substrate: ADA Amazonia
Hardscape: Landscaping rocks

Planting: Various rotalas, ludwigias, S.repens, hydrocotyl tripartita, helanthium tenellum, B. japonica. Subject to change

Very nice stand. I thought I've read that Amazonia and CO2 can be a difficult combination due to low dKh and Ph, and by the time you achieve your 1+ ph drop from CO2 your Ph is down close to just 5. I'm not an expert though.

Never had an issue personally, many others use the same setup and of course ADA themselves all use the substrate and supplement CO2
I don't worry myself with tank parameters though, haven't even owned a PH test kit in years. I use the plants as indicators since they're the ones that matter

Little update time
The past few weeks were used to grow out some stems that i had (threw out a large bunch of rotalas) as well as waiting for plant shipments from various online stores
Some of the plants in here could just be temporary such as the hygro corymbosa, pennywort etc. I havn't used these before so im growing them out for fun and seeing if they suit the overall design or not.
Glosso has been planted for a week or so and is sending out runners, havn't used it before either (matter of fact i've never done a proper carpet) so excited to see it spread.

Current plant list:

Rotala green/rotundifolia
Ludwigia brevipes/arcuata
S. repens
Hygrophila corymbosa/lancea/pinnatifida
Glosso
Cyperus helferi
hydrocotyle japan mini
Assorted anubias
Narrow leaf java fern
helanthium tenellum
Blyxa japanonica
Frogbit

One issue i have with the scape is that the four front stones are of similar size and are lined up too symmetrically
The main reason for their placement is to keep the substrate slope but i may be able to remove one
I mocked this up in paint, removing the second stone from the left to create two more distinct rock formations on either side
Thoughts? i think it looks better, maybe replace it with a smaller stone since that space may be a bit too empty without anything
