2.5 gallon mixed carpet-long overdue update pics at the bottom

After lots of patience and a trimming I really like the way this tank turned out. This is my first attempt at a planted nano tank and a mixed carpet.Excuse the low quality pic and all the floating ET. It's for my new tank that isn't quite set up yet. Let me know what you think.

Plants: Glosso,pearlgrass,giant baby tears,Hydrocotyle sp.japan,Taiwan moss,stargrass,Rotala sp. bonsai,hygro something,crypt something, and a few tiny bits of Hc

Very nice!

I would just put the rock on the left between the stargrass and crypt.

What light do you have over the tank?

Thanks guys 'm reworking this tank a little actually considering tearing it down. Only because I have a few other projects going and all together its a lot of work. But I'll post more pics if I keep it going.

Well I finally got around to reworking the scape for this tank. I was not happy with the sort of messy look it had, and I didn't like the glosso. So I replaced the glosso with dwarf cardnalis moved some plants around and added some diamondhead neon tetras. I am pretty happy with it now. I think in a month or so when everything is established and the stargrass on the left grows taller it's really going to look great. Sorry for the low quality picture I'm going to take proper pics soon. Let me know what you think
