replanted my 10g and a DYI java moss wall

my 10g planted tank was growing out of control with dwarf sage and java moss. i pulled out 80% of the dwarf sage and cut off a ton of the moss from my driftwood. i traded the sage for some amazon vals for my 55g and bought two bunches of giant baby tears. i also got some wire mesh from home depot and some suction cups to make a moss wall for the back of the tank.i added some small amazon swords from my 55g to the 10g. ill get more pics once the moss starts to grow. i have 20watts of light on the tank and dose with excel once a week after water changes. im thinking about doing some CO2

nice cory!

a few suggestions:
you might want to spread the moss out better (speaking from experience). I see very thick, clumpy areas, and bald spots. it should be a thin uniform layer. Also, any reason the background doesn't fully cover the back?
Even with a moss background, it is a good idea to have something behind it to block light. e.g., paint the back black.
the driftwood orientation was better before. reorienting it will allow you to hide the heater again (moss wall doesn't need to go all the way to bottom in all places.
