My First Planted Tank

I set up my first planted tank about a month ago. Here are some pictures. Let me know what you think. Criticism welcome. Thanks.

Looks good--maybe try adding some driftwood or rock work to give it a bit more varied landscape.

Nice, what was the reason for moving the rocks? What is the substrate you are using? Are you planning to add more types of plants?

looks fresh and healthy. Some foreground cover would be a good addition.

Patience is the name of the game.

Thanks for the responses everyone. I know it's three months later but I didn't have my account set up to receive emailed notices when I posted this. I forgot to check on the thread and just noticed the replies today.

I have since changed my tank up a bit. I've removed all of the water sprite and the red wendtii. I've since added lilaeopsis mauritius and echinodorus tenellus. The chain sword is sending lots of runners. I think I'm just going to let it take over the tank. I don't think I'm going to add/remove any other plants. I'm just waiting for everything to grow out.

Here is what my tank currently looks like:

Thanks again, everyone.
