My first planted tank is 4 mths old now. Here is a picture of the tank.
All comments and critiques are welcome.

I feel that the Sagittaria is getting out of hand and would probably remove it in near future and replace with something else.

You're right, the Sagittaria just has to go. I would also remove those bright red rocks, as they are an eye sore in the aquarium. I would recommend more subtly colored rocks in their place.

You might want to let the plants grow a little taller in the background.

Regardless, you have a healthy tank and a happy home for your fish. Keep working on it and keep us updated!
