left to right front to back: Bacopa Monieri, Red Nesaea, Ludwigia repens, Water wisteria, crypt wendtii, red rubin sword, dwarf sag, anubias, dwarf sword, HC, and pygmy chain swords.Looks Good. And once its grown in it should look really good. What's the plant list?
I was thinking about java fern, moss or anubias on it but do you think i should just ditch it? The anubias is on one piece and I wanted a couple pieces so it didn't look like "I went to the LFS and they had anubias on a stick so that's what i got" Just let me know what you think i should do.Just my opinion but I think you should move the wood to the right side. Just me I like everything else just not the wood placement.
Yeah it is a dwarf but if it gets overpowering I will move it appreciate it.I like it too. You just need to be patient and give it time to mature. A few trims will improve the density of plants. My only concern is the sword in the front right. Unless it is a miniature sword, it will eventually be too big for that area and I think you will lose the effect of tall stems on the left and smaller plants on the right.
Personally I would keep it is a nice piece and yes I can see what you mean bout the anubias stick.just add some more and it would look good.I was thinking about java fern, moss or anubias on it but do you think i should just ditch it?

Not just good nerves I just don't feel like having to do it all with full grown plants. I had a bug running through the tank that killed 1/2 of my cardinals. anyway i cleaned the whole tank a bunch as i was using erythromycin to treat the fish and doing daily water changes. Unfortunately all that commotion has my tank cycling again so i am being obsessive about monitoring water parameters so i don't loose anymore fish.I like it, is looking very good. 6 times in a month .... you have good nerves.
Yeah I don't know about it either. I am just starting out, and when I went to my LFS I just kind of got like 20 stems of anything I liked. But now i dont know what to do with them. I think once it grows in I will see what would look better pulled out and what not. Maybe put some contrast right in the middle. Part of it is also I have big fingers and I couldn't put them closer together without having the surrounding ones kick up. I am not an artistic person; I am a procedure person. If someone told my buy X, Y, and Z plants and plant them in locations 1, 2, and 3 I would just do that. So any and all advice is welcome. though i will not be rearranging for at least a month of 2 to give the plants a chance to actually root and thicken up and such.I don't know much about how to plant things in the tank yet, but the red plant looks kinda odd to me concentrated in the corner in an almost rectangle shape. Like I said I don't know much, maybe your suppose to cluster types of plants like that though?
That's the best thing about a planted tank! "Planted tanks are like a box of chocolates, you never know what you'll get.":thumbsup:Agreed. You should definately let it grow in for a few weeks before deciding if you like it or not. IME it never looks like you expected after a couple weeks of growth. Sometimes you're pleasantly surprized.
