Those peacock gudgeons are gorgeous! No aggression from them?

Actually no, their much more peaceful than my Otos. Imagine that. I think their both females so they don't really bother each other much. They get chased away by my Neons from time to time.

You already have a great triangular scape:


Just trim the Hygro back a bit, and possibly the...plant on the left (forgot its name)
