May I ask what plants you used in these scapes?
Sure. In the first pic the stems in the background are Ludwigia cuba. There is also java fern, pretty evident, and the groundcover is L. brasiliensis with a few stems of something I can't recall. It seems like it might have been considered a Staurogyne species at the time but has since been renamed.

Next pic, left to right across the back. P. stellatus, narrow leaf, is the reddish stem. The green on the right is P. erectus. The lower pinkish green in the center is sunset hygro. To the right of that is rotala green. The small little bush sitting in front of where the sunset hygro and rotala meet is the dwarf form of Lobelia cardinalis. On the front left and right we have Blyxa japonica with Stauro repens in the center. Oh and the too big anubias is on the right front also.

The third pic is the same plants as the second pic just shaped a bit differently.

Pic four is java fern trident with blyxa japonica on the left and right front and the ground cover is stauro repens. There's a bit of lobelia in the back left corner which had gotten not as compact and leggier after lowering the light for that particular "scape." I really liked that plant at the time and although it didn't go with that setup I hated to get rid of it which I eventually did. That layout is till probably my favorite.

Let me know if I can be of more help.
