Nice clean look. The ludwigia looks more like a arcuata x repens hybrid or l. palustris but its hard to tell.

Nice tank, your plants all look real healthy

But, IDK if those are emerald cories...I was told mine were when I bought them and believed if for a while, but after doing some research I found out they were bronze cories.

Thanks! I'm fairly sure they are you can see some green on them. But either way I think they are super awesome
