 @  Diwan  and  Jib:  Thanks  Guys
 
 @  Deb:  Had  been  meaning  to  track  progress  of  this  tank  weekly,  but  due  to  time  constraint  looks  like  i  have  to  settle  for  monthly  ,  below  is  a  1  month  update   Smile  
 
 Had  been  a  bit  tied  up  with  work,  not  much  time  to  have  a  photosession  with  my  tanks   Smile  ,  The  leaves  of  cuba  as  expected  started  to  change  (become  smaller),  the  carpet  is  really  thick  and  i  had  to  give  it  a  trim,  plus  some  iron  deficiency  symptoms  showing  up.  The  carpet  has  been  given  a  light  trim  and  Iron  dosing  was  started.  Below  is  a  picture  of  the  tank  just  before  getting  the  trim.  This  was  13th  July'09.

 @  Pramod:  Thank  You  Sir  
 
 @  Swapnil:  Thanks  ,  Frankly  i  would  love  to  add  more  rocks,  these  are  ADA  Rocks  and  when  i  picked  them  my  wallet  did  not  permit  to  pick  more  than  this.  Now  i  am  contemplating  on  picking  some  more  and  adding  to  this,  provided  i  get  rocks  which  go  with  this  existing  scape.

 @  Tirtha:  Thanks  Buddy.  Answers  to  you  questions  below
 
 1.  Was  there  any  initial  melting  phase  after  adding  water?  
 
 No,  no  melting  whatsoever,  kept  CO2  very  high  right  from  the  start,  Only  change  was  that  the  leaves  started  turning  smaller  and  the  plants  that  were  growing  tall  which  you  will  notice  in  the  first  picture  i  posted  after  filling  water  started  stooping  down.  Some  leaves  turned  yellow  after  3  weeks,  this  i  am  presuming  was  Iron  deficiency.
 
 2.  Details  of  CO2  (How  many  BPS?)  
 
 4bps,  8  Hrs  a  day
 
 3.  Dosing?  
 
 DO  AQUA!  be  green  and  started  off  on  Green  Brighty  Step  2  for  Iron,  will  be  adding  Iron  bottom  soon.
 
 4.  Tank  Temp?  
 
 Varies  between  26-28  C
 
 5.  Water  Hardness?
 
 Frankly  havent  measured,  but  it  always  was  around  4-5  GH,  I  add  2  capful  of  DO  AQUA!  be  soft  after  water  change
 
 @  Prem  and  Mathew:  Thanks  Guys,  An  i  agree  the  scape  could  use  some  more  rocks,  will  look  at  adding  them  soon.

 Nice  growth  of  HC.  Don't  bother  getting  Iron  Bottom  for  HC.  It  is  more  useful  if  you  have  large  root  feeders  like  Cryptcoryne  and  Echinodorus.  I  would  recommend  getting  ECA  instead  if  you  have  not  got  it  yet.

 Seetharam,  ill  be  honest,  the  tank  looks  cluttered  and  the  different  color  of  the  rocks  is  striking  and  its  quiet  a  challenge  to  get  the  right  rocks.
