    Well i need some advice i love the look of heavy planted tanks but just dont know how to achieve it.. Im slowly adding more plants in over time due to $ oviously, today i added bacopa, another anubias on driftwood and a moss ball but im just not that great at aquascaping and my problem is i plant something then a month later i might change it round again although i didnt up any plants except couple of rush plants accidently when putting in an airstone.. So any advice/help would be great.. I use flourish all in one liquid ferts weekly and just added my first lot of flourish root tabs.. 1 covers a 15cm radious so only added 3 tabs cause my other plants are water column feeders... The first is how it looks now and the second pic of when i first set it up..

    I think it looks fine. It's hard, but be patient. It will all grow and fill in. You don't need a lot of money to have a planted tank. A few plants will turn into a tankful eventually. I really like what you have done with it. Looks awesome.

    Except the rush plants in the corner and possibly the 2 lizards tails will eventually have to be removed as ive read there not true aquatic plants so not ment to be fully submerged

    They grass on the left and the anachris on the right will grow quick be ready to do tons of pruning lol. Outside that your lighting looks great the rest is just time. My tank started out not so planted but now it's a jungle lol.

    Be sure to trim the tops of anachris it will force it to grow out the sides and become bushy
