I gave up on the idea of "carefully" scaping it in favour of just a bunch of plants taking over it. Got a new Taiwan lily plant today, can't wait for it to grow. It's on the far left beside the red pot. It'll get tall.

That's a lot of air you have going through the sponge filter
All I hear from it is glug glug glug I love it lol
Ive got 2 filters running at both ends to keep oxygen levels up since I've got the pleco in there who appreciates lots of oxygen in the water. So I cant say I don't have enough surface agitation :p

my shrimp tank is like that on both sides with the sponge filters.
My 46g too. Two 60g sponge filters and an aquaculture 70 HOB lol I actually really love the reliability of sponge filters. I've had 1 too many HOB conk out on me so now I make sure I keep sponges as secondary for that reason

Looks great! Thanks for sharing. I love how hornwort looks when it's still bushy and pretty and not trying to take over the world yet. What are the little grassy bits?
Do you mean the tall "grass" behind the swords?
Those are my native valisneria from my local river
