In this aquascape, the owner carefully shaped the Rotala rotundifolia 'Green' into two mounds on either side. To cover up the lower stems and add midground height, he used two pieces of driftwood covered in java moss. These pieces are placed in such a way that they create a V. The Glosso was then used to fill in the foreground. The scanty, short Vallisneria at the focal point adds depth to this layout...
I don't feel that this particular aquascape really needs any red plants as the very strong focal point of negative space is more subtly balanced by the triangle of dark negative space right under the piece of driftwood on the left side.
Use of red plants? That is a really broad topic --too much for the scope of this thread.
