Where should I put these plants?

I have 2 Java Ferns and one Narrow Leaf Java Fern. I want advice on where I should place them in my tank.



Where should each plant go? 1 & 2 will be behind the driftwood and 3 will be next to it along the side. The plants are still pretty small. The Anubias will be moved around slightly to make room.
Example:
1 - Java Fern
2 - Java Fern
3 - Narrow Leaf

Are you intending to place the Java Ferns into the substrate, or tied to the driftwood? I would recommend the latter, as placing them into the substrate may be a bit tricky...

Bump means to push the thread to the top of the forums (as a reply would force the thread to the top). This has the effect of giving the thread more exposure.

Finally, a bump 10 minutes after the initial post is not really warranted...

I would group all the Anubis and place them in front of the DW by 2, move the ones on the left(our left not the tank left. By the filter) also. That way all the plants are located on the left and right will look like a clearing. Use the ferns and place them on the right by 3 to cover up the heater, plus it would look better as the DW on the right will have ferns around the base. As for the needle leaf i don't know yet. Just my 2 cent
