Lookin good. Is that E. Triandra on the back right and HC up front? What is that spiky guy on the left?

It feels like you need something off center in the midground, like a small rock or something.

its HC up on the front and its Rotala sp. Goias on the right back
the spiky thing on the left front is Eriocaulon cinereum

so a rock in the center mid would make it look better?? im trying to imagine and its not really working out with a rock in the mid center

Well, when I look at it, i really like the hardscape in the background, but it seems like at this point there is just a whole lot of foreground.

I think if the Eriocaulon cinereum was a little bit more to the left and there was a smallish rock to the right of it, that it might look nice. it's hard to say i guess.

what is that thing on the left in front of the mossball?

thats a homemade dish haha, its for when i get my shrimps in there. well im trying to go for a minialscape, and not much shooting up to the top of the surface. i might end up adding a few Polygonum sp. Sao Paulo or Ranunculus Inundatus in the center in the future as i want slow growing plants and stay semi low so i dont have to keep on rescaping the shrimp tank if u know what i mean. so maybe Ranunculus Inundatus is a better choice for that
