hello guys. i set up my 29 gallon a few weeks ago, with dragon stone, black limestone, and manzanita driftwood. i was planning to make this a dwarf cichlid tank, however im leaning more towards a different idea now so i added plants.. i ordered them from H2oPlants.com i love his youtube channel, so i figured why not. i got Ludwigia SP Red, Rotala Indica, Bacopa Caroliniana, and anubias nana petite to start. ive never experienced growing any of these plants, so i dont really know what to expect long term. can someone give me advice on how these plants will look in the future? and critique my plant placement? its sitting at 77F 0 ammonia, Ph at 8.1 .. not sure of nitrites and nitrates. (theres no fish in the tank)
30 inch finnex planted+ for lighting...no Co2 injection. seachem flourite substrate throughout..

also the jungle vals in here is from aquarium co op, this plant was the first in the tank and came in a week ago. whereas all the others came in 3 days ago. Click image for larger version
