Looks fine so far! The only thing I would suggest is adding more plants and mabey moveing the driftwood to a "standing" position, to take advantage of your tanks hight. Also, what are you useing for lighting?

The driftwood is nice; I think you could build a really nice scape around it.

thanks a lot! i'm not done scaping yet and still will add some more plants. This is my first real "planted" tank and I think it looks pretty good. My lighting is a 24" coralife dualtube fixture with a 14 watt colormax bulb and a 14 watt 6700K bulb.

okay well i think the "sword" u have is not a sword at all lift it out and tank a picture of the root part right were it connects to the plant. im sure u have a terrestrial plant or it maybe a anubias. they have been sneaking these into the local fish stores and im finding they are dying quick under water. so i think they might not be a aquatic plant at all.
