Fantastic start. It will look really nice when all the plants fill in. What kind of fish do you have in there?

That doesn't sound bad at all. I always use endlers and cherry shrimp as guinea pigs for new tanks.

I would add a black background. Other than that, give it a month. Let it get nice and overgrown, then a good trim. Thats what I do on fresh set-ups.

Nice growth. I'd say about now is a good time to chop all the stem plants down half way. Every time you do that they will grow back thicker and more robust. All the while you can get a feel for the contrast between the different species and start shifting things around and tightening up the scape.
