I personally like it a lot. Normally I like tanks covered in plants but yours is nice. You made a really nice hardscape with all the wood and rock. The plants add a little color to break it all up nicely. The only thing I might add is a ground cover plant like pygmy chain sword but nothing tall that takes away from the rock.

First, welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum. Nice to have you with us.

That is a nice job of aquascaping, something different, but suited to the fish. Good work.

Some of those plants will increase as they grow, though slowly (for those species) but they will spread. Perhaps a couple more Java Fern... up to you.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

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