That looks GREAT!

How long has it been set up? Looks new... and will look AMAZING once those plants have grown in. I really like the simplicity of your groupings.

thanks for the comments the tank has been setup since early april and this is the third kinda rescape. I got new plants and the rock this weekend. I figured time to rearrange. It seems with these co2 high light tanks everything grows so fast its like redoing the tank about every few months lol.

You have a nice-size tank. Good thing the sword is toward the back. They always get huge. I'm sure you've been told this a bunch but make sure you keep the lotus plants pruned back. You will eventually get saucer size leaves but it should look good. I'd love to see how it turns out.

looks nice, and once the foreground grows in then it will be a really good tank.
