Alright, my tank in its current status is a mess.

- Brown Water (stupid tannins)
- Bad Placement of Plants
- Debris Everywhere.

I'm going to do a 100% water change and redoing everything...

I'm currently housing 5 Amano and 2 Cherries as well as a Trumpet Snail.

Any advice on plant placement?

Plants...

- Java Fern
- Java Moss
- Morimo Moss
- Micro Swords
- Anacharis

Also, the tank is a cube.​

It sounds like too many plants for such a small tank. You could go with just two or three of those and have a full tank. I'd probably do java fern/anarchis in the back two corners. Microsword as your midground and foreground. Maybe stick the marimo ball right in the front if you have space?

Do you have any driftwood or something to tie the java moss to? A small stick of manzanita could be small enough to be the right scale for a 1.5 gallon tank and you could potentially tie thin strands of java moss to that.

Yes, The plants are all like mini so I think I'm good...

Also, the moss is tied to a piece of driftwood...

Do Endler Live bearers eat shrimp fry?
