Wonderful start! I don't really see anything that needs to be changed. Maybe a background plant for the back, but I think it will be even more impressive once it has time to grow in. Nice work and welcome to AA!

Great start!

What kind of lighting do you have? Are you injecting CO2? Are you adding any fertilizer? This will help us suggest some appropriate plants for your setup.
