So, I re-scaped my 20g long C. irrubesco tank. The wisteria is still in emersed form, and the ludwigia and cabomba need to get established.
Some changes between the first two pics and the third:
I added C. torta
Moved the mother crypt 'tropica' over from my 10g (and stripped it of the runners, which I re-planted in the 10g)
Took out one of the pieces of driftwood
Took out a couple stems of the submerged form of wisteria.
Rearranged the lineup of the background (moved the aponos to the corners, and switched places between the ludwigia and cabomba).
I'm very happy with the new scape, and it will sit like this now until the plants get established and grow.
Let me know what you think
When I first set it up (everything was previously owned, which is where there was so much thread algae):
Later, I rearranged the driftwood, and added the cabomba, ludwigia, fresh wisteria, and the aponos and stellata lillies I was growing in my 10g DP tank:
This is muuuch closer to what I envisioned. I still need to get some riccia for the driftwood and figure out if I'm keeping the green crypts, but I want to see what the new growth looks like first
Right side (I love those lilies, but the green one is growing slower for some reason):
