Second planted tank. Wanted something more uniform because my first was just a random jungle which wasn't bad it just looks really random and confusing. This is after one week after planting, any opinions on if i should add or remove plants and or hardscape?
Tank specs: 36g bowfront
Finnex planted + 24/7
River gravel on top of eco complete
Flourish root tabs
Flourish excel co2
Plants: Back:few rows of bacopa Middle: 3 amazon swords Sides: some hygrophila difformis and aponogeton Front:couple bunches of lobelia cardinalis

I would either add plants, or hardscape, just to make it a little more alive. Second, I would move the middle sword a little to the side. It's right in the middle, which looks unnatural. Other than that, wait for it to grow!

Ps. I think the plants in the front aren't Lobelia. The leaves look too pointy. I think it's Staurogyne:)

Planted tanks look natural when you plant the same plants in a bunch. Stand alone plants don't produce that effect unless they grow into a thick bush.
