Hi  Nidhi,  your  new  setup  looks  nice   Thumb Up  
 But  one  suggestion,  don't  use  vallisneria  nana  as  it  will  take  over  other  carpet  plants  soon  (like  Glosso,  Staurogyne  etc).                

 Thanks  Kuna,  will  avoid  vallisneria  nana..  Smile

 Hi  Nidhi,
 
 As  usual  your  tanks  are  inspiring.   Thumb Up  
 
 I  just  feel  that  the  Windelov  is  not  justifying  it's  place  as  it  gives  a  scrambled  look.  (My  personal  opinion  though)
 All  the  windelov  stocked  at  one  place  which  one  forms  one  big  bush  looks  wonderful
 
 Also,  moving  the   larger  Ferns  towards  the  Left  and  Right  edges  might  allow  you  to  place  your  smaller  plants  at  the  center.  
 The  Ferns  currently  placed  in  the  middle  might  slowly  hide  the  driftwood  
 
 If  you  want  I  have  a  few  needle  leaf  plantlets(they're  still  small)  and  couple  of  dwarf  Java  ferns  that  I  can  give  it  to  you.
 
 Regards,
 Karthik

 Hi  Nidh,
 
 Move  the  drift  wood,  rocks  its  on  exactly  as  it  is  to  Point  A.  maintain  the  same  orientation  as  much  as  possible.

 Karthik,
 I  have  made  two  bunches  of  wendelov,  one  place  is  where  you  are  referring  as  scrambled,  and  other  one  is  on  the  front  of  right  side.  both  contain  good  number  of  rhizomes..  I  will  be  trimming  off  the  scrambled  leaves  (  and  of  all  the  ferns  in  the  scape)  after  a  few  days,  the  new  growth  should  give  it  an  orderly  look..
 I  have  a  big  tub  full  of  needle  leaf  ferns,  I  could  use  the  dwarf  ones  though..
 I  just  didn't  want  to  clutter  the  scape  with  too  much  of  needle  leaf,  getting  sick  of  needle  leaf  actually..

 Ok  Preeths,  will  do..
 But,  will  have  to  wait  for  the  drifts  to  completely  drown,  they  are  still  buoyant  and  are  held  in  place  by  rocks.

 Nidhi,
 
 I'm  also  beginning  to  have  a  crazy  growth  of  Needle  Leaf.   Very Happy  
 I'm  staying  in  KR  Puram.  I  can  you  meet  you  sometime  over  the  weekend  but  not  sure  of  the  location  though.
 
 Was  just  thinking  if  at  you  require  a  background  since  this  is  Island  kind  of  setup.  Not  sure  how  the  end  product  would  look  like  though
 
 Thanks,
 Karthik

 Karthik,  they  will  grow  quite  fast  once  they  acclimatize  to  your  tank  condition.  Your  welcome  to  my  house,  will  be  available  on  Saturday  and  Sunday.  landmark  is  near  Blue  Hyundai  showroom  near  Navarang  theatre  on  Dr.Rajkumar  Road,  Rajajinagar.  My  planning  was  to  have  more  like  a  jungle  type  of  scape,  as  of  now  it  surely  looks  like  an  Island  scape..

 Thanks  Andrew,  I  have  already  moved  the  drift  as  per  Preethams  recommendation.  Its  a  long  time  since  I  had  a  garden,  and  I  used  love  Cactus  and  succulents  back  then,  I  had  quite  an  exotic  collection  of  those.  But  ferns  are  my  favorite  when  it  comes  to  aquarium..

 Hi  Nidhi,
 
 Sorry,  I've  been  away  for  a  while  now.  
 Any  updates  on  your  tank?
 
 Also,  I  haven't  had  time  to  make  it  upto  Rajaji  Nagar.  It's  around  25  km's  from  my  place  Crying or Very sad  
 
 Thanks,
 Karthik

 Karthik,
 The  basic  update  is,  I  have  trimmed  off  all  the  leaves  on  the  needle  leave  java  fern,  and  new  tiny  leaves  have  started  to  sprout.  The  moss  on  drifts  have  picked  up  nicely.
 Glosso  for  carpet  isn't  doing  well,  may  be  will  have  to  replace  with  some  other  plant.
 I  have  been  busy  too,  so  will  update  with  new  photos  as  soon  as  possible.  Take  your  time  regarding  the  plants,  I  am  in  no  real  hurry..  Smile

 hi  Nidhi,
 
 its  a  very  nice  looking  aquarium.
 
 since  it  is  a  fern  tank  so  i  can  safely  assume  that  you  have  the  patience  to  wait  and  see  your  scape  shape  up.  in  that  case  i'd  suggest  Monte  Carlo  for  carpet  plant.  it  will  do  better  and  is  less  fussy  and  best  of  all  things  the  lower  part  never  rots  even  if  it  gets  less  light.  the  downside  is  that  it  grows  kind  of  slow  for  2-3  months  (atleast  for  me).  once  it  has  it  foothold  it  pretty  much  will  pick  up  good  with  the  amount  of  light  and  CO2  you  have  in  the  tank.
 
 also  once  the  ferns  grow  up,  the  area  below  them  will  support  little  or  no  growth  for  carpet  plants.  you  can  fill  them  with  anubias  petite.  (any  other  Anubias  will  look  big).  or  you  can  plant  bunches  of  low  light  small  sized  crypts  there.  prefer  dark  green  ones.  the  contrast  of  light  green  monte  carlo  followed  by  dark  green  crypt  and  then  light  green  fern  leaves  will  save  you  from  the  monotonous  light  green  hue  which  your  tank  would  acquire  if  you  proceed  with  only  needle  fern  and  any  carpet  plants  (be  it  monte  carlo,  HC,  glosso).
 
 i  am  a  big  fan  of  vallisneria  nana.  it  soemhow  stabilizes  the  tank  and  any  accidental  overdosing  would  be  cushioned  by  the  presence  of  this  plant.  you  can  have  them  in  the  background  and  have  filter  output  in  the  background.  this  way  all  the  vals  leaves  will  sway  from  left  to  right  or  vice  versa.  but  it  sends  out  too  many  runners  so  you'll  have  to  weekly  trim  those  rogue  runner  plants  which  move  forward.
