| || | Advice on my 55 gallon planted
Here is my 55 gallon planted aquarium. It is the first planted tank I've ever done. The right side of the tank has more plants because it has more lighting. Behind the regular T-12 fixture is a T-5 HO light with two bulbs. The left side is full of river rock and 3 pieces of driftwood, which are still leeching out some tannins. Scattered about are a few java ferns and 2 anubias. There is a piece of drift wood covered in Java moss with two java ferns attached. Then I have two green crypts (not sure what kind) and behind/next to those are 6-7 red wendtii crypts. There are 4 swords. Behind the swords I have 4 newly planted balansae crypts (they are only 3 inches high at the moment and cant be seen). There are 6 Vals in the back right corner and 5 Sagittaria towards the front right.
I was wondering if you guys could give me advice on new plants to buy or ways to rearrange my tank to make it look better.
