    I'm going for a wild look for the foreground so its a mixture of Eleocharis Parvula, Lilaeopsis Novea-Zelandiae, and Lilaeopsis Mauritiana.

    A very nice scape. Some Anubias sp. on the left should balance things up nicely.

    If possible, you can get similar branches to simulate more 'cliffs' on the right side. That will make the whole scape look much deeper.

    I can take some photos tomorrow when I get some time. I'm questioning whether or not the Mauritiana is truely that species. Its growing in very short and is bound to get smothered and is not exibiting the same height as I had it before. It closely resembles a plant a local lfs has in emersed growth, and is labeled as "mini micro sword", in my tank its growing in no taller than 1/4 - 3/8"'s.

    I've considered some Anubias on the left as you mentioned (possibly minis), where I removed the patch of Blyxa. I'm also considering some more Riccardia Chamedryfolia on rocks. Just not sure yet.


    The right side has a large grouping (about a sq ft) back there of the Nanjenshan (not my first pick though, I have some Rotala Pusilla in a grow out tank I would prefer there). I do have more wood to choose from that is alot like the right side that could go in there. I'll have to try adding a piece and see how it fairs. But that would give me an even number of wood pieces, and the aquatic gods may just frown on that.
