Looks like possibly dwarf sagittaria or pygmy chain sword. Either way, full aquatic so you don't need to worry.

My edge is npt style I put a lot of work into my substrate thia was the first time I actually collected substrate from a river to use without sterilizing it. Its a mix of fine sand and gravel. I dont use C02 injection I use a liquid organic form. And I would look into fertilizing I am adicted too the Flourish line of fert. products but I dont use it as often as I should.

Well think of it this way, ur hardscape should follow some sort of rule of thirds meaning

| _____ #__ |

the placement of the hardscape should be in this general area of the tank (whether it is left or right)

Begin by bunching the tall background plants bunched behind or slightly left or right of the driftwood or rocks. If you have rocks you can place them coming out from the main piece of the tank.
