 Lovely  start....the  bog  wood  is  such  a  strong  focal  point...

 Hi  Prem,  
 
 Very  good  start  and  the  tank  looks  awesome!
 
 Keeping  in  mind  that  the  substrate  is  ADA,  the  tank  looks  a  little  underplanted.  May  be  control  over  photo  period  will  help  you  battle  algae.
 
 Best  of  luck  with  the  new  setup.
 
 Regards,
 Surya

 Hi  Prem
 
 Thats  a  good  start.  That  a  good  start.  Love  the  driftwood  &  what  you  have  done  with  it.
 
 You  need  to  get  more  plants  in  there,  especially  at  the  back.  Try  to  look  at  other  options  like  Glosso  for  the  foreground.

 Prem  lift  the  suction  grid  off  the  amazonia,  the  tank  will  be  coated  with  an  ugly  brown  coat  of  fine  powder  very  soon.  The  suction  should  be  about  3-4  cms  above  the  substrate.

 Hi  Prem,
 I've  fallen  for  this  tank  hook,  line  and  sinker!   Very Happy   I  see  that  you've  got  a  width  of  15"  juxtaposed  to  a  height  of  12"  which  makes  the  tank  look  brilliant  IMO.
 
   How  about  a  nice  bushy  foreground  of  Dwarf  Hair  Grass?

 Nice  start  Prem.  I  would  suggest  you  to  remove  those  pervas  to  the  Midground  and  put  some  Hair  grass  at  foreground.  Otherwise  spread  those  HC  all  over  so  they  can  fill  up  the  FG.

 Thank  you  folks  for  your  comments.
 
 Madan  -  Point  noted  and  corrections  made.  Thank  you.
 
 I  am  yet  to  add  some  more  plants  and  am  hunting  for  it.  I  am  not  sure  about  HC  and  hence  have  my  fingers  corossed.  
 
 This  is  just  one  peice  of  driftwood.
 
 Regards,
 Prem
