A beautiful display of plant health and color. The bright colors of the R. wallichii and hairgrass work well together. The fish choice is good.

However, this aquascape lacks a sense of permanence. I believe that some branchy driftwood flowing in from the stand of wallichii into the hairgrass field will create more of a midground. This, in turn, will allow for a better connection between the stand of R. wallichii and the E. parvulus.

The driftwood will also create more visual interest.

Keep it up, it is a great aquarium nonetheless,

Carlos
