Please Critique My Tank!

I know the picture is slightly crooked...sorry...lol

I set this up a couple weeks ago not knowing how fast the R. Walichii would grow! My former star of the tank (the java fern) is now being dwarfed and I am sensing the need to re-scape. I also have some various other plants that I am not sure what to do that I just threw in some spots for the time being...any ideas about those would be great they include Rotala(the one in the front), Wisteria and Jungle Val.

My thoughts at the moment are move the Cabomba on the right to the back-middle(behind the Java Fern on the wood), and place the Rotala (Indica?) in the back-right. Any other ideas?

Also is there a way to get that R. Indica to not twist like that?



Thanks all!

Good healthy looking plants ! My suggestion would be to let it grow, stay healthy and decide for yourself what you like.
The indica will do well trimmed now and thickened by replanting the tops into a "stand" of indica.
I see know algae to speak of so your tank is a win...the scaping is of personal choice and ALL up to you !

Good job so far .

I agree- the plants look awesome, very healthy- let them grow some more while you ponder where they will show off best? You've got a nice selection to choose from for sure; great textures and colors!

id say 6/10 on the layout, 9.99999/10 on plant health (10 means blooming).

your stems should not be in the front, and you need a midground in the left.
