OK, so I know this is another thread I am starting about my tank upgrade, but I wanted to make sure I post them all in the right forums.

When I do my new tank I want to make sure I have all the plants in the right places so I don't have to re-scape in the future when I find out they were all wrong.

I was wondering if anyone would be able to help my out and advise me where correct placement of the following would be in a 120l tank (80Lx35Dx45H cm):

Microsorum ptetropus narrow
Crypt. X willisii
Lilaeopsis brasiliensis
Rotala rodfolia
Anubias Nana
Pelia moss
Flame moss
Blyxa japonica
Limnophila hippuridoides
Bucephilandra
Alternanthera reineckii mini

Some at present are attached with superglue to the wood I have in my 48l so would attempt to take them off it. I am also unsure whether to try and incorporate the wood I have already with the new bit I found and want to put in.

I have uploaded a picture of my 48l with the plants and wood in (the smaller tank is full of CPD fry, more seem to appear in the main tank every day. I must have at least 25 in there now) and also a pic of the new piece of wood. I found it when out for a walk. It is completely dry and doesn't have any give when doing the thumb test. I will attempt to soak it somewhere before it does go in any tank though. I will also put some of the river stones i have in the new scape so can use those for plant attachment too.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Can see this has gone unanswered... is the below what you were after?

Microsorum ptetropus narrow - attached to wood (taller than most plants of this type so further back than the other)
Crypt. X willisii - mid ground planted
Lilaeopsis brasiliensis- foreground carpetting
Rotala rodfolia - background stem
Anubias Nana - attached to wood
Pelia moss - on branches of wood? Will grow anywhere
Flame moss - as above
Blyxa japonica- mid ground planted
Limnophila hippuridoides- background stem
Bucephilandra- attached to wood
Alternanthera reineckii mini - mid ground planted
