This is the first time I have actually planted the stems one by one and groped them together. So far I I am very happy with the right half of the tank.

Comments and suggestions are very welcome.

That's awesome how you defied gravity !!! Upon flipping monitor, the tank looks great. The only comments I have is the hardscape looks a little forced at least straight on. The driftwood appears in line, and the stones as well. Also, do you want the focal point to be the grass (forget the name)?

Too much hardware displayed. That grassy plant (Blyxa japonica?!) should slightly off the center.

Yeah it's Blyxa japonica. Which way do you think I should go with it....more to the left or right?

Blyxa to right and that red plant (Rotala rotundifolia?!) behind it slightly forward and to the left.

It's Rotala wallichii...which is taking forever to transition into it's submerged fourm.

Thanks I'll give it a try tomorrow during my water change. Also thinking of removing the Pogostemon Octopus which is right next to the stargrass on the left. Blends in to much and im not a fan of how long the leaves are.
