I want to recreate this tank. There are 4 types of plants used. Any idea what type of plants are being used?

I'll take a guess, though I'm probably wrong on a few:

1. Dwarf hairgrass
2. Glosso
3. Cryptocoryne wendtii
4. Echinodorus tenellus
Agreed on all!

3. Cryptocoryne wendtii
I'd narrow it down further and say Cryptocoryne wendtii v. "Tropica".

The "hammered' looking leaves are the give away.

I have never seen a glosso hedge. How would one get it to grow up in a bunch like this?
Great !! but not sure about (glosso). could it be micranthemum micranthemoides (baby tears) ... will they grow up in a bunch like that?

1 eleocharis acicularis (hair grass dwarf)
3 cryptocoryne wendtii tropica
4 echinodorus tenellus

what is easier to make base carpet with, echinodorus tenellus (pygmy chain sword) or lilaeopsis brasiliensismirco (micro sword)? Anyone have experience with these plants ?

I can't wait to set this up !!
