I can't see any trouble plant behind the wood, not sure which one you think isn't doing well. This area actually looks quite good, as you can see through to the back which gives the suggestion of more space that a wall of plant would not convey. And you comment on symmetry is pertinent, I think you have good balance now, it looks quite natural. As soon as you put anything "centre" [that large piece of wood is something I would move just slightly to the right to avoid this as it is rather centered] or start balancing identical plants on the opposite ends, you lose the natural spaciousness and start closing in the box. I would just keep this in mind when considering any plant moves.

Thanks B!

I think I"m going to give the plant behind the DW a trim, it just has alot of dead leaves and is an eyesore compared to the rest of the tank...

it just has a "dead" look to it, while the rest of tank is thriving, I was looking for something as a nice green 'pop' like the swords give off...

Terrible pictures. That tank looks horrendous. All those green leafy plants all over the place with that piece of dw in there. Just brutal.

Ok, I feel better about my own tank now in comparison

Looking great Johnny

NICE I love how this tank started and where its at now, wonderful!
The Ludwigia I also trim down several inches every 2nd week here, luckly so far I met a member from here living close by me with a tank addition too and he can use all the plants

Hey Y'all!!!!

I figured it was time to throw up some updated pictures of my tank. Things have been growing like crazy!! I bought two new swords, they went in about a month ago, and are (in my opinion) stunning! I think they are growing quite nicely. I took kymmie and byron's advice and trimmed and re-rooted my stem plants. I've mainly been trimming back my pennyworts. They seem to hit the top of the water by the end of every week!

Thanks for your continued support in my build....all comments and concerned are welcomed as always!!
( I don't know why the first pic is so small compared to the rest...stupid photobucket!!)

Sweet! The tank looks fantastic. Looking at your tank reminds me that I've got to find some pennywort for my tank. Nice job! Your fish are in heaven.
