Nice. :)

Looks like a lot of the plants need more time to grow in. I think you may have some trouble keeping that pretty sword small enough in the future. The Pogostemon (Eusteralis) stellata also seems a bit large for the size of this layout.

Are you going to try a Hydrocotyle verticellata/Glossostigma mix in the foreground?

Keep us updated!

This looks like a beautiful garden. You really have chosen the plants well, as they all complement each other really nicely. How are you keeping the sword plant small? Aggressive pruning?

Do you have a full frontal shot?

Looking good,

Carlos

One way I use is pruming the roots, like the bonsai. That plant is the Echinodorus “rubin” narrow leafs it grows short but large to this tank, but I like the efect, I've been told that I fill to mutch the tanks, thats one the things that I' ve to improve.
