there is another one that I am no wary of, it's called "Kyoto grass" anyone know of it?
I believe it's the Ophiopogon japonica var. Kyoto, but neither this one is pure aquatic plant. I believe you can get some help here with the Plant Finder, the link is up on the page to identify the plants that can fit better to the plan of your tank. Maybe you can find also here some models of different planted tanks, to have a complete idea of endless possibilities of aquascaping.

Thanks for commenting. The substrate is Seachem's fluorite substrate.
I have redone the scaping many times, just not posted pics for the first times.
I have driftwood coming in on friday and some moss should be coming in tomorrow (thanks to AaronT!)
water cleared a bit, will post pics soon!
oh yeah, got my RCS from epicfish! Some are battling against the tiger barbs that like expensive food apparently... they are already eating though which is good.
Going to go get a co2 reactor tomorrow as well as some fertilizer for the plants, and 5 new female guppies to keep the males happy and the only other female guppy company...
