Very healthy plants!

Justin Law

Pretty tank, and I'm a sucker for Rotala macrandra too. But an entire back wall of it is a little too much. Your other planting is so nice... try keeping some of your Rotala, and perhaps one or two other species in nice mounding shapes to balance the Ludwigia on the left.

The mixing of midground helferi and eriocaulon as a forground has an interesting affect that I am digging. Not sure how long you can maintain that though. There is no real focus overall though. Just a lot of organized and really healthy plants. If you worked in a hardscape to help draw focus, I would also add some sloping to the macrandra so it isn't a big wall.
