Nice start.

What are your aquascaping plans with this little tank, besides letting the H. callitrichoides take over? Wood or rock?

I haven't had the pleasure of growing Hemianthus callitrichoides, but I can say that this layout presently lacks focus. I don't feel that the driftwood is really adding anything to the overall presentation.

Either rocks or thin, branchy driftwood would be better. An HC-only layout is one which I would like to see.

You could probably keep one or two other plants, though, as accents. Perhaps a few pillows of Riccia or java moss could add interest in the future layout you are planning in this little tank.

HC grew real slow for me. I would plant as densly as possible. It double mass every 1.5 months. As compared to Rotala Macranda in the same tank who double mass every week almost.
