Here's my latest attempt at a planted aquarium

Tank:
Aquascaper 900

Lighting:
Twinstar 900S

Filtration:
Fluval G6

Co2:
Fire extinguisher to an inline diffuser

Fertiliser:
EI through a doser

Hardscape:
Manzanita fixed to a piece of slate
Smaller slate pieces

Substrate:
JBL Volcano mineral
JBL Volcano powder
ADA Amazonia
Dennerle Baikal gravel

Planting: *provisional list*
-micranthemum monte carlo - left hand section section
-hemianthus callitrichoides cuba hc - middle section
-marsilea crenata - right hand behind wall
-marsilea hirsuta -right hand behind wall
-Ammania sp. Bonsai - Rotala indica (unsure if it is true Rotala bonsai available which is something I heard a while back) - clumps here and there; by fallen rubble, along the path etc

I'd still probably add some Eleocharis when things have grown in along with a few clumps of something here and there.

As a minimum I still need to:
-create piles of rubble in front of the disturbed sections of wall
-sort the backlighting length out, I have pipes/cables coming up the right hand so need to bare this in mind
-decide if I am happy with the pathway shape

Here's how things are looking now:
