Green Green and Playsand

Hey guys, So I recently purchased three new Amazon Swords, 3 pygmy chain swords and a bunch of water sprite that I currently have floating. As well as a bag of play sand recommended by Byron. I was wondering if I could get some feedback on my placement of them all. I also have a specimen of Anubias Nana attached to a lava rock in the back right corner. Also if you have any suggestions for arranging the slate that would be greatly appreciated as well.

The fish in the tank are:
5 Kuhlii Loaches
5 Cory Catfish
10 Neon Tetras
1 Dwarf Gourami
2 Honey Gouramis
1 Bolivian Ram Chiclid

Left Half of Tank




Right Half of Tank

Could you do a photo of the complete tank? When it is split as here I have trouble visuallizing the entire aquascape.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

That is not at all bad right now. I think I remember something from another thread...those two plants just right of centre are terrestrial, we discussed that didn't we? So you know.

I have to go out with my neighbour to walk her dog, so I'll check back with this later after I have some time to think about placement.

Yeah they are, I left them in there so there is more green, but can take them out if need be. I just don't know what to replace them with.
okay enjoy the walk.

I don't think I would mess with this, it is balanced and I see nothing that stands out as not working.

I would get a background though, and something very simple like black construction paper. It is dull, not shiny [shiny will reflect light and be obvious], very inexpensive, and very effective.

What is the floating stem plant on the right?

Really? Does it have a root mass at the end [can't see this in the photo]?
