Likewise. One suggestion is permitted, yes? Move the clump of ludwigia to the left behind the wood, basically in the left rear corner but out from the corner, if that makes sense. I think it will fix the balance (visual).

I like it, but won't the Cabomba edventually block it from sight? (I plan to let it reach the top of the tank, but not let the Ludwigia grow any taller)

Looks nice, now all you need is a black or navy blue backdrop to hide your cords. That also makes the fish and plants look nicer. Love your Ludwigia, that is such a pretty plant. That must be 2 together? What they sell around here is such spindly bits you have to plant a few together to look nice.

Thanks, the Ludwigia has about 9 stems in it.

You'll be regularly trimming the ludwigia. That's fine. Maybe the cabomba can moved back then.

I thought so, it looks so pretty and full. I need to get a bit more to fill mine out.

I think I'll keep it how it is for now, but thanks for the suggestions. Considering you have several biotopes, how do you think it looks for a Central American River?

Very authentic. More a stream than river I suppose, as fewer plants are usually found in rivers as opposed to streams. A very good acquascape for livebearers. I like to see aquarists replicating natural biotopes (with some latitude is fine, doesn't need to be strict as that can be rather dull, one or no plants, one or two fish species) as that indicates a concern for the fish and that means a better environment for better health. And this is a fine one. I like it.

Byron.
