What a beautiful, healthy jungle! I 'd like to see a bit more color break up the green, the one patch of pink looks rather lonely. The wood is great, it provides a good focal point without being overwhelming.

I feel the same way. However, I would like to see the pink grow in more before making any decisions.

The Ludwigia sp. "Guinea" is also known as Ludwigia senagalensis. This plant demands very high light and consistent CO2 levels to do well. If you put yours in a midground or background location and let it grow up near the surface you'll see it grow larger, faster, and with more side branches. I'd be surprised if it's getting enough light down by the substrate to grow very well.
