Hello, everyone! Here we are! I need some ideas for some flora ideas in this tank, along with some tips and just overall discussion as this tank builds! Here are the specs for it.

Dirted substrate with Osmocote sprinkled in places. Capped with PFS.
Pressurized Co2. Finnex Planted+ 24/7 SE.

Foreground:

Staurogyne Repens
Dwarf Hairgrass
Narrow Leaf Chain Sword
Micro sword

Midground:

(Not really sure. Maybe move the narrow leaf chainsword to here?)
Some moss on the stones
Some anubias
Blyxa Japonica


Background:

Ludwigia Repens
Rotala Rotundifolia
Rotala Indica
Limnophila Aquatica
(Need more ideas!)

Check out the inspiration page on Tropica's website (http://tropica.com/en/inspiration/). That'll help with ideas for plant placement, and even plant additions. I think the Narrow Leaf Chain Sword would be a better fit in the midground. In terms of Anubias, I recommend Anubias nana, Anubias nana "Gold", and Anubias nana "petite". Just make sure to shade them. They look so much better without algae and are very prone to it in higher lighting. Just an idea, but Ludwigia sp. Red would add even more color to the tank. It's the easiest red plant that I've had stem wise. For me, it even grew better than Ludwigia repens. Also look into Alternanthera reineckii "mini" if space permits.

Ludwigia sp. Red
