As you can see their numbers are super accurate.. but when you put a big rock in there there isn't any way to be that precise with it.
Other things.. odd numbers very important, wide leaf plants on the edges, thinner leafed plants more in the middle...
I can see your cambomba (?) and bacopa (?) have no leaves near the base, a good idea is to plant shorter plants in front of them to hide that fact. Also, planting in front of things like rocks and driftwood is also good, the rocks/wood being partially obscured by plants makes it look more natural since they don't stand out as much.
Yes, I had the Bacopa planted too close together and the Cambomba the I just bought. The Cambomba has lower leaves, it's just a bad picture. There's a lotus in front of the bacopa and some smaller stem of it so it should hide most of it till I put something there. I know about the plants in front of rocks/ dwiftwood, I always liked how it looked. I looked at the article and it's for 20-50 gallon tanks. I'm also a little confused by it.
