Thanks for the complements.

Thinking the orange plant should be on the right and pink on the left. Also next got to get some tape to divide tank in thirds to try to follow the 3rds rule http://www.ultimate-photo-tips.com/photography-rule-of-thirds.html

Excuse me for not posting the plants. I was a bit exhausted after working on the tank. Moved the intake and output of Eheim 2213 filter. Put output on the right side aimed towards back. Added a fluval internal filter. Output aimed towards the front. Hoping to get DIY Co2 through the fluval filter. The pink plant needs it, for some new leaves are green.
