I need some help deciding where to go from here. I have a large potted C. lutea in the tank already, you can see it there bunched up in the driftwood, and I also have a large potted C. wendtii 'bronze' in the holding tank. But I'm not averse to picking up some new plants. I just feel like I've reached a stalemate, and I don't know what to do from here.
The left side will look great once the balansae and retrospiralis grow up and over, so I have to be patient for that... I'll move the lutea at that time. But the right side, and I guess everything in between, I'm not sure I like.
I've been planning all along to put a stand of Rotala vietnam somewhere off-center and to the right, but it also seems like something should be behind it. I just don't know what. The tenellus should eventually carpet all open areas, but I'm not against planting stuff here and there. I just don't know what.
And the anubias nana leaves are too big, I think. Maybe I should take it all out and get petite nana instead? Or should I put more crypts in there, like the wendtii, just to balance the scape out with the size of the leaves and all.
Am I making any sense here?
Oh yeah, this is a 45 tall. 3' x 1' x 2' (real skinny and real tall).
