 Hi  Guys,
 
 The  tank  is  full  with  tall  background  plants.  The  pic  was  taken  nearly  3-4  months  back  after  hair  cut.  It  is  a  totally  low  tech  &  low  maintenance  tank  running  from  last  6-7  months.

 Very  promising,  Rocky.  Do  you  have  any  livestock  inside?
 
 You  need  to  group  the  background  plants  that  are  dead  centre  (bacopa  or  rotala).  A  few  minor  modifications  to  the  foreground/midground  areas  to  separate  the  two  plants  visually  would  do  wonders.
 
 I  would  suggest  bunching  up  the  midground  plants  in  front  of  the  driftwood  around  some  rocks  and  allowing  more  space  for  your  foreground.

Thanks  mate!
 As  of  now  there  are  following  livestock:
 -  Cardinal  Tetra  =  50
 -  Whiptail  Catfish  =  4
 -  Red  Cherry  Shrimp  =  100+

The  dead  center  plant  was  Bacopa  Carolina  which  has  been  already  replaced  by  Cryptocoryne  Cordata.

 DJ
 
 Are  you  dosing  micros  in  this  tank?  Since  you  are  keeping  RCS,  microsol  B  would  not  be  a  good  option.
