"The Great Rescape(s)"

Cheesy title, I know! Suits me well lol.
Since acquiring my new driftwood from a local fellow member I decided to re-scape my 100 gallon, and probably my 55 tall also. First the 100!
Pulled up all the plants i was planning on moving.....and the giant hygro decided to not play nice and stirred up a bunch of my MTS ><. Now ill have to wait to replant everything where i want it /sigh. And the driftwood still has some buoyancy to it so that will take some time to sink and arrange perfectly! Looks like i will be going with L Aromatica in the back left corner, some Bolbitis behind the wood, Blyxa in the foreground on both left and right sides. Now heres where i need some opinions, for the back right corner ( ? ) and for the front foreground in the middle (?, Stauro 49, Dwarf hairgrass, etc?) And last question, leave the wood bare or add moss, mini pellia, fissidens? On to some pics.
Before the rescape!

Filling up, so cloudy ><

Acting like shes trying to help, pfft please!

Full!


Still lots more work to do, also should i shift the wood left or right or have the base near the center? Its not permanent atm since it still floats. To be continued tomorrow!

And next on the list once the 100 is done, the 55 tall!


All comments, critiques, harassment is welcome!

Congrats on the new scape. I hope it looks great for you. Sorry about the female threadfin RB. I had a hard time keeping females, but the males like male buddies too. I think they do better that way actually. They display to each other, but don't have a female to harass. I have never seen them violent or pick at each other.
More pics when clear please!

Thanks for all the comments. Still cant decide what to use in the front foreground and the back right. Possibilities are Downoi, Staurogyne Tropica 49, or H Tenellum for the front. And the back right i just dont kow lol. Give me some opinions please!

Downoi would look amazing in there! So would E. Tenellum and it would look good with the blyxa. Don't know about the back right though. What is your goals for the plant? Do you want high maintenance or just a filler?

I think I'll give downoi a try! Have to save up to buy a few crowns though lol. For the back right mostly just a filler that will contrast nicely. Maintenance doesn't matter much since I'm always elbow deep in this tank lol. Thanks for the input.

I can trade you for some downoi if you like. A nice red plant like ludwigia repens 'rubin' maybe? Or do you want to stay more green since I am seeing what looks like poly k in behind that wood?
