 Prem,
 Had  always  loved  your  tank.  Just  a  suggestion--how  about  some  windelov  fern  (between  the  rocks)  and  having  one  or  two  rocks  partially  covered  with  Moss?

 Your  welcome  anytime  Deepak.  Just  give  me  a  call  before  you  come  so  I  will  ensure  I  stay  put  at  home.
 
 Bappa  -  Thank  you!  I  will  for  sure  use  moss  to  cover  the  rocks  and  will  look  out  for  the  ferns.

 This  is  my  final  scape  as  I  could  not  get  any  better  rocks.  Tried  the  scape  with  a  driftwood  but  did  not  like  it.  
 
 Decided  to  grow  HC  emersed.  Any  inputs  from  experts  who  have  adopted  this  method  would  be  of  great  help.
 
 The  final  hardscape.
 
 
 Added  water,  half  inch  below  the  substrate.
 
 
 Planted  HC...
 
 
 Another  view...
 
 
 Close  up...

 Prem....  remove  the  second  large  rock  from  the  left.  It's  looking  odd.  Better  to  keep  that  place  empty.

 Actually,  I  would  do  as  Tirtha  suggests,  but  replace  the  2nd  rock  from  the  1st  big  one  on  the  left.  I  think  that's  a  better  balance.

 Me  too  second  that.  I  feel  by  removing  that  rock  you  will  have  better  depth.
 
 Also  the  small  rock  on  extreme  right  back  is  being  blocked  by  the  big  one.

 Nothing  different  Deb.  Just  following  the  instructions  given  by  Tom.
 
 1.  Aquasoil
 2.  Water  just  below  the  substrate
 3.  Covered  the  tank  with  the  food  foil  wrap
 4.  144  watts  of  light  -  a  little  more  than  2  watts  per  gallon(3  tubes  of  8000  k  and  one  of  6500  k)
 5.  Photo  period  -  10  hours  on  timer.
 
 I  havent  removed  the  foil  wrap  for  the  past  6  days.  I  will  need  to  water  it  today  or  tomorrow  as  I  see  the  water  has  dried  up  quiet  a  bit.
