 Dear  Sir  
 Why  not  plant  some  Vals.  at  the  back  side  which  can  add  more  greener  looks.
 Regards

 If  you  read  this  thread  carefully,  and  also  many  other  threads  on  IAH  about  planted  aquariums  the  information  is  already  there.
 
 I'll  post  a  picture  of  a  nano  tank  if  possible  today  evening,  which  is  about  6  odd  months  old  for  you  to  compare.

 Not  only  that  there  are  lots  more.  Do  some  reading  on  the  plants  that  are  suitable  for  a  Nano,  lighting,  substrate  etc.,  also  try  to  match  this  with  what  requirements  you  can  provide.  When  people  advice  you  something  if  you  refuse  to  consider  it  then  there  will  be  no  more  advice  coming  forth.
 
 Did  you  ever  wonder  why  people  stopped  replying  to  your  Placards  Help  back  in  November?

 but  as  i  got  knowledge  i  upgraded  my  tank  lighting  from  10watt  hitachi  pink  flourecent  to  9watt  pll  cool  daylight  6,500k  for  3.5g  tank,  then  i  started  adding  DIY  co2  in  the  tank  then  started  adding  liquid  ferts  have  changed  the  plants  from  cabomba  and  java  ferns  to  only  anubias  and  hairgrass  and  will  now  be  adding  java  moss  in  sometime  befor  there  was  a  rock  which  was  looking  odd  i  changed  and  added  one  more  driftwood  before  i  didn't  have  filter  in  my  tank  now  i  have  made  a  DIY  mini  canister  filter  check  this
 
 the  only  thing  i  didn't  change  was  substrate
 
 and  after  november  i  didn't  visit  IAh  as  i  was  too  busy  with  my  business  and  my  tank  was  also  full  of  blue-green  algae  (Cyanobacteria)

 Madan,
 
 Its  a  jungle  out  there.  I  am  aware  that  most  of  these  are  low  light  plants,  but  the  hair  grass?  How  come  your  managed  without  co2?  Water  changes  are  also  in  frequent.  Whats  the  success  strategy  here?
