That little field of elocharis is it? looks awesome. I would just get that growing more along the left hand side too.

Nice work. I like that lawn you have in the front. Also your plants are nice and dense, just need a little time to grow.

Looks good Russell! I can't give you any aquascaping advice, but the hardware was distracting in the first picture, i'm glad you took it out in the second. Also different shots (side for example) might inspire some more suggestions.

Russell... Your tank looks nice... I think that the foreground needs to spread out more to the left and the right back needs more plants. Other then that its really nice & healthy.

thanks guys. i recently planted some L. rapens in the back right corner. i have L. glandulosa kinda in front and to the middle of it. i am going for a scape with high plants on both sides, and lower in the middle.

insted of spreading the hairgrass more to the left, i was thinking of just filling it up with more anubias nana and coffefolia.

Russell the Anubias sound like a good idea, coffeefolia are rather big I think but may be combining the both nana and coffeefolia the contrast will be better.
just my cents.

That Ludwigia glandulosa is far too large of a plant for this layout -- especially in that position. I would switch it out for a plant like Ludwigia brevipes or Ludwigia arcuata.

Keep us updated!

Russell,

The glandulosa is a bit big but you can move it to the side a little I think.

If you do listen to Tzunami's advice and if you come to the club meeting in May I will bring some brevipes for you.

hmmm... sounds good niko. there are no promises that i will actually get to come, but i would really love to.

tsunami: thanks for the advice. as for the glandulosa, i was kindof thinking it was too big myself, but i just can't seem to give it up. it is just too beautiful. what if i hid it behind somthing so that just the heads stuck out? another idea is, maybe getting rid of the red temple? it just seems bigger than the glandulosa. maybe i could take it out and put glandulosa there?

if anyone has any ideas about rescaping this tank just let me know. i am up for just about anything except blue gravel ;)
