Picked up the plants today for my tank. I ended up getting 3 Swords, 2 Java Ferns, 2 Anubias although it was potted as one, 1 Contortionist Val and a clump of Riccia. I also got maybe 5 or so small shrimp with the Riccia. Other inhabitants right now are a dozen or so MTS. Tomorrow I am getting 8 Platies for it. It's a little bare right now but I hope the plants do well and fill it in. I might add a plant here or there later on depending on how it grows. I'll post up more pictures in here as it goes on.

Turquoise Rainbow- 8
Platy- 8

The two on the right side I probably would just a little. The one on the left would probably be alright. Now just is just my thinking and probably would be fine like they are. Just thinking they would look a little better if they were moved just a little bit.

Here is an updated picture. I just added the rocks to it and rearranged the plants a little bit. Think it looks pretty good.

lol, which one? Both the swords have sprouted way up and are growing roots now. I need to trim and see about replanting them.
