 Why  this  is  so????  Any  specific  reason  for  it?  Keep  running  CO2  at  1BPS  speed  along  with  the  Photo  period.
 
 And  your  tank  needs  more  Micro.  Dose  'em  up.

 Hi  Mitra,
 
 Please  edit  your  image  and  post  it  not  more  than  800  pixels  wide.
 
 You  seem  to  be  growing  some  algae  as  well.  Keep  CO2  running  throughout  your  lighting  period.  It  will  help  reduce  your  algae.
 
 The  Rotala  stems  are  looking  like  twigs.  In  order  to  make  them  look  better,  please  trim  them  at  about  30%  from  the  bottom.  Each  node  will  then  split  into  two.  Once  they  reach  full  height,  trim  them  again  at  about  20%  above  the  previous  level  for  further  branching.  This  will  provide  you  a  fuller  look.
 
 A  good  start.  I  wouldn't  use  riccia  too  much  as  it  has  the  habit  of  clogging  filters  when  they  break  off.  My  shrimp  love  to  rip  them  apart.

 Mitra
 
 Couple  of  points.
 
 1.  Add  a  black  or  blue  background.  Your  tank  will  look  more  better.
 2.  As  Suraj  mentioned  increase  you  Co2  for  the  entire  8  hours.
 3.  Try  to  get  hold  of  a  nano  ceramic  glass  diffuser.  I  am  using  one  for  my  4  footer  and  its  very  effective.
 4.  You  have  M.Hirsuta  in  your  left  hand  foreground,  its  all  planted  in  one  clump,  remove  it  and  replant  it  individually  and  in  one  months  time  you  will  have  a  lush  dark  green  carpet.

 @  Hayath,  Seetharam,  Gator  X,  Jawahar,  Bharani,  Sudhir,  Deepak-
 
 Thanks  a  lot  for  the  comments  guys.  
 
 @Tirth
 Im  running  the  co2  for  2  hrs  a  day  since  i  noticed  my  tetra  s  gasping  for  air  when  i  run  it  on  for  8  hrs.  So  i  thought  of  increasing  it  slowly.
 
 @Suraj
 Yes..  i  have  been  growing  a  lot  of  algae  in  the  tank.  Will  increase  the  co2  and  see  if  i  can  overcome  it.  And  will  trim  the  rotala  the  way  you  have  advised.
 
 @Niranjan
 The  tank  is  very  very  old  and  there  is  algae  on  the  glass.  I  dont  clean  it  since  i  have  a  couple  of  ottos  in  the  tank  and  hence  left  that  job  to  them.  Smile

 If  your  fish  gasp  out  of  CO2,  then  reduce  the  bubble  count.  But  do  not  put  it  off  when  your  lights  are  on.  You  are  initing  algae.  Set  the  bubble  count  once  based  on  your  requirement  and  then  keep  it  running  for  the  same  speed.  
 
 Your  Rotala  and  Anubias  showing  Micro  Deficiency.  So  it's  better  to  increase  dosing.  Thumb Up
