Thanks for all the encouraging comments! Gratiola is actually a business setup with another partner.

The wood is very dense. I'm not sure where it's from, but it takes 2 weeks of soaking/boiling to sink. This tank was not meant to put too much emphasis or focus on the plants. Instead, we thought we might try to have the plants compliment the rock and wood. It's hard to get the right balance of plants in, and we don't want to overwhelm the tank with huge bushes. The feeling I get when I see it now is like a snapshot that's frozen a particular moment in time. I'd let the plants grow in a bit more (flow out of the cracks and crevices) and then maintain from there.

Thanks again. I'll update when the plants settle in.
