Couple weeks after, the staurogyne repens in there didn't fare well, snails ate it.

I had asked here about adding a slope, which I had done but the cories flattened it by this point.

Further progress...

And where I am at today with this tank

The quadricostatus tissue culture is struggling to take off as its constantly dug up, but the rest of everything is doing well anyways.
My lettuce has done so well it has flowered indoors.

Thanks to the member here who suggested not planting hydrocotyle, best advice I've had with that plant and it grows fantastic tied to the driftwood.

Beautiful. Love the set-up of this tank.
C.eques is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful corydoras species offered for aquarium. I have 6 myself.
