Wow! What a dramatic display in a very shallow small tank! Plants and fish chosen are the right scale for the tank. While the Riccia in this tank will also become problematic sooner or later it is a lesser part of the total tank design than in the previous tank. I could easily see the Riccia replaced by Christmas moss Monosolenium or even Java moss down the road. Beautifully done!

Too many foreground plants with the same general texture.

Nice looking tank. I like how the plants slope toward the right side of the tank making it look like a hillside or streambank. Nicely done. I'd suggest taking out the two riccia stones in the front of the tank to allow more of a foreground. A little pruning and shaping of the Micranthemun will also improve the look on the left side of the tank. Nicely done.
