Looks nice. Only suggestion- get the stones at the base a little closer. What plants have you ordered?

Cheers,

Karthik

Thanks Kartik for your suggestion, currently planning to put plants in the gaps between the stone.
I'm not sure how it will look in the end, will amend the layout if it not good.
Hoping to get some good layout.

Ludwigia senegalensis
Hygrophilla pinnatifid
Ludwigia sp. mini super red
Rotala sp. compact
Hemianthus cuba
Micranthemum monte carlo
Hygrophilla corymbosa  Compacta
Cryptocoryne parva
Ludwigia brevipes
Staurogyne sp. brown
Marsilea hirsuta
Ammannia Sp. Bonsai

@KarthikC, @SanamMarik

I had one query regarding moss which is normally found on the tree, can you tell me whether it will survive in an aquarium or not?
I have collected few recently during a trip and would like to try in this tank.
Will post the picture of moss later on.

It took 3 days to put all the plants in the tank, rooting can be seen on most of them except Ludwigia sp. mini super red.
Ludwigia sp. mini super red may not survive.

Most of the plants are first time for me, so I don't know how they will behave in future.
