I appreciate all the compliments and suggestions. I don't know how much I can shift the wood and not destroy everything but maybe I'll give it a shot this weekend. I didn't really like the placement but I had a lot of planting to do so I left it for the time being.
As far as the stem plants goes - did you see rotting bottoms in the pics? I didn't notice any but I'm new to this so I may have missed it. What do you mean a bit more spread out? The Rotalas and the HM moved more forward away from the Swords? Or the individual plants separated into individual stems to be planted separately?
I had a hard time with these plants and they were pricey from my LFS, so I want them to survive - so I'm willing to re-plant if I have to.
The Rotala Magenta is sprouting new growth that's all bright green unfortunately. But I'll worry about color after I get them established and healthy. The Rotala Indica and the HC don't seem to be growing anything yet. I did follow someone's advice on this thread and pull my Swords up out of the gravel a bit more so only the roots were buried.
Maybe that will help the smaller swords compete with the monster in the middle. Aside from root tabs for the new plants and Seachem Flourish instead of API Leaf Zone I don't know what else I can really do except see what develops.
