Just something to think about... it looks like you planted your stem plants in bundles. Stem plants should be planted one stem at a time with it's leaves almost touching the leaves of the stem plants around them. This will allow for light and water circulation to get to the lower leaves/stem. This will also fill your tank out better and you won't have the leaning outward tops with all the stems being crammed in together. If left like this you will have issues such as lower leaf loss and perhaps some stem rotting.
