2.5 gal re-rescaped again

I replanted most this tank recently so the new plants are still getting established. There's a tiny bit of HC that I added to see if it takes without pressurized cO2.Also I added stargrass(Hz)and driftwood with moss and java fern.To fill the excess negative space. Let me know what you think

size: Standard 2.5 gallon
equipment: aqueon 10 HOB filter
30"18watt T8 (suspended 4inches above tank and another I use for experiments)
Substrate: Topsoil capped with carribsea black sand
Ferts: Excel and Ecological labs "Bloom and Grow" all-in-one

Plants: Glosso,Pearlgrass,HM,,HC, Stargrass(Hz),tiawan moss,java fern,hydrocotyle sp japan,riccia

Thank you. I think I'm going to move the glosso that is in front of the smaller rocks to the back and add some more HC in it's place since it seems to be doing well

Thanks. I definitely was going for less is more. This is the second scape for this tank. The first time I got too crazy with the plants.

I just wasn't happy with this tank so I rescaped it again. I am very happy with this version so I think it will stay this way for awhile. I also added some diamondhead neon tetras and a couple ottos. Let me know what you think
