I think I need some help...

Well, I just redid my 29g. The plants were beat to all heck from my neglect, so I trimmed them down, and hoping the lights, co2, and ferts will bring them back.

I like the hardscape, and I like the left side, but I'm not sure what's going on with the right side... I'm hoping to throw a bunch of stems over on the right to fill it out. I'm also thinking about replacing the jungle vals with a smaller variety of vals, something that won't grow quite 6 to 7 feet long. I also need something to soften the body of the driftwood down a bit. I have a couple larger anubias I figured I would tie to it, maybe with some moss...

I'm putting a black background on it here soon. The white is driving me bonkers. And yes, I cleaned all the floaters out of my powerhead and filter intake.

What do you guys think?

i think you could move one piece of the hard scape to the right some.Kinda open up the middle.
A few more plants wouldn't hurt either.Nice start.
You can also look at some other peoples scapes to get more ideas on what
you finally decide to do with yours. Good luck with your tank. ;-)
Patience does wonders.
I've been thinking about ideas, looking at different stem plants and what I consider higher-end planted tanks. It doesn't need to be that perfect, but there's no reason why I can't do something similar. I think I'll go shopping at my LFS Friday morning, when they have full stocks of plants to see what I can get locally. Then fill in the gaps with whatever I can find on the SnS.

That driftwood, by the way, is one solid piece. Last time I posted it, it was a bit controversial, but I decided to keep it one piece. It's just too unique to break it apart.
