I can't decide, I feel like the amazon swords fill up the sides nicely but they look a bit out of place..

Here are some pics to help me decide :?

thats a fantastic setup. looks very familiar to mine.. stand and everything lolz. it gets a LOT of natural light so hopefully those plants do really well. i highly suggest however that you dont over fertilize the tank. (go with 1/3 of reccomended fertilizers) it will help supress algae that will sooner or later grow. either way looks great!

The thing you need to know about swords is that they like a deep, nutrient rich substrate. It's a bit hard to tell from the pics, but swords should be planted in at least 4 inches of substrate and yours looks like less than 2. Adding clay balls or fertilizer spikes under the roots will help. Happy swords grow a new leaf about every two days and get pretty massive. I had a similar set up one time with a sword on one side and a red lotus on the other, both very large plants.
