Does it look weird for a tank to have 2 types of vals?

Currently I have about 20 thin vals in my tank.

I just purchased online about 50 new spiral vals. If all goes well and both kind of vals take off, would my tank look weird with two types of vals? Or would I barely be able to tell the difference?

Should I move all the thin vals to one side and put the spiral vals on the other side? Or should I mix them?


My goal is to create a 2-4 inch deep background of val forest for my 60 gallon discus tank.

60 gallon (12.75"L x 48.5"W x 25" H) tank. 48" Planted Plus on between 7 am-12 pm and 4-9 pm. Aquaclear 110. Very hard water. High Alkaline. No current throughout tank .

Perhaps you could mix them up instead.
I think what you want to do will look good.

I think this is one of those personal tastes things. If it was me I think I would mix them up.
