I made a few changes and this picture came out better then the first. Background plants are 2 amazon swords and 2 wisteria. Middle ground has 3 artificial plants for color. the foreground has 2 anubias, one on each end of the tank. Rocks, driftwood and gravel make up the hardscaping. The lights are aquaray gro-beams 1000 nd. The fish are 11 platies, 6 albino cats, 1 dwarf gourami and 1 honey gourami and 2 red eye tetras.
Water parameters are 7.3 pH, GH 9 dGH, Nitrate 15 ppm and phosphate is 0.25 ppm.

Still, this picture does not appear as my eye's see it. In real time, the appearance is more pleasing to look at. It must be the way the camera see's it.

It's going to look really nice when those plants grow in some. The more plants the better IMO.

Thanks for sharing.

The swords were just planted but the wisteria are about 2 months in the tank and were trimmed 3 times. The last time I trimmed them down to almost 2/3rds. Most of their growth was in the middle and top of the plants. The lower 3rd was not getting enough light I guess. I am going to see if I can make them look more fuller at the lower 3rd.
