It's been about 10 days since my last post.  I've held off on any trimming or touching the tank, mostly to let everything establish.  The glosso is holding up well - though it's growing up and not out...  I plan on trimming that when I come back from vacation and replanting the runners.  The pennywort needs to be cut back and replanted as well as some of the bacopa.

New Plants

Things I have added: 

Side view...  the Bacopa is in the back next to the pennywort and on the side back behind the Hygro, the dwarf sag is in front of the hygro and behind the lilies for now.

Glosso mat - supposed to root, but after weighing it down with washers, I went to remove the washers and the plant really has not taken yet to the substrate...  I'm going to leave as is for now, but I plan on removing the mat to cut into plugs and replant in plugs.  We'll see how it goes.

Wish I had gotten a picture of it, but one of the otos decided to rest inside my tweezers as I was removing the washers from the glosso mat.  It was rather cute.
