Thanks to everyone for your help so far. I've revamped my planting list to be very Echinodorus heavy and want to know if this is going to overwhelm my 40 gallon breeder. I really like the spider wood I purchased and don't want it getting overshadowed. I also want there to be room for the fish to swim. How many of each would you recommend? I've attached photos of the tank so far to help. I have a Finnex Planted+ 24/7 CC, pool filter sand (to be supplemented with Easy Green liquid fertilizers and root tabs, plus probably extra iron), no CO2. This is what I'm thinking: A: Ludwigia repens B: Kleiner bar sword C: Java fern 'trident' D. Rosette sword Echinodorus parviflorus 'Tropica' E. Echinodorus Hadi Red Pearl F: Echinodorus xinguensis Or would you maybe put the big Kleiner bar sword (B) over in the upper left corner instead of the Ludwigia? I was thinking I wanted another main focal point over on the right but given that I want attention on the big high branches that are near the right, maybe I don't want a super showy plant right there. Maybe putting a lot of weight on the upper left and leaving the righthand side of the tank wouldn't be awful. The java fern would be okay being shaded. Many thanks!
