Aquascaping Advice

These are pics of my 110 - everything is growing quite well - but I'm
totally challenged when it comes to getting any ground cover to succeed -
I think it looks just ok - I need a new set of eyes to have a look -
all advice and suggestions are welcome.

Thanks

Nice tank Suzanne.

I can't tell what the background is. Can you change the background to black? I think it would look more natural and add depth.

I agree with Craig.. Although it is a great scape, I would put a black background on it as well.

Here is something to ponder...Maybe add some swords, an vals in the back middle, and back right. I like the hygro on the left. Swords in the back middle, just to the right of the driftwood, an vals in the back right. Bending to the left once they hit the water...

Discus, swords, an vals just look good together. IMO...

I don't think it has a background, I think that's a fireplace wall or something behind the tank ...

Sláinte!

the resizing seemed to have stretched the pictures a bit
the background is a picture of stones stacked horizontally - I kinda liked it!
I have a semi-automatic CO2 system, with coralife lighting and I use
Tropica Mastergrow about twice a week
