definatley needs some type of foreground, and i think you should put shorter plants around your moss covered wood (if that's what it is), so that it is a little more visible

Tino, what lighting fixture are you using and approximately how much did it cost? I'm unhappy with my half-arse retrofit that I did on my 10-gallon and thinking about making a change and the fixture you have doesn't look all that bad.

Thanks for comments and suggestions!
My main task was to achieve some good growth, which has been accomplished, now I just need to work on my aquascaping .
Cheesybacon - the fixture that I used for this set up is Coralife 28 watt Aqualight. Cost me $45 at a LFS and they swapped out the 50/50 bulb for 6700K one for free. It's available at most online retailers for around $35 plus the cost of the right bulb.

Here's a closeup of some Ricca that somehow hitchhiked with Java Moss
