 Thanks,  Ravi,  Vimal,  Tirtha,  Sudhir,  Harshal,  Pramod.
 
 Harshal,  No  proper  hardscape  planned.  The  cube  was  a  bit  cramped  especially  when  viewed  from  two  sides  and  since  I  didn't  think  much  about  driftwood  or  rock  at  that  time  Doh,  I  just  decided  to  go  ahead  and  plant  all  of  it.  
 
 Vimal,  I  should  be  trimming  the  plants  in  a  week's  time  to  get  more  of  the  blend  in  foreground,  mid  and  background.  
 
 One  plant  which  didn't  do  particularly  well  was  Rotala  rotundifolia  'Green',  has  grown  like  a  damn  stringy  weed  with  roots  all  over.  This  will  be  removed  and  replaced  with  something  better.  Might  also  remove  the  Hygrophila  corymbosa  and  the  Hygrophila  polysperma  'Green'.  Instead  of  just  redoing  the  entire  tank,  I  would  like  to  evolve  it  in  stages.  Most  of  us  aquarists  are  always  dissatisfied  with  our  work  and  end  up  tearing  out  the  entire  tank  and  rebuild  it.  I  would  like  to  keep  this  for  a  year  at  least  with  corrections  where  necessary.
 
 Here  are  some  close  ups  of  some  of  the  plants.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Dosing  still  at  2ml  of  Aquatilizer  and  1ml  of  Balance-K  daily.  No  root  tabs  added  so  far.  I  find  this  to  be  slightly  slow  growth  because  my  lighting  period  is  between  4.30  to  9.30  every  day.  I  guess  growth  would  have  been  better  with  an  extended  lighting  period,  but  I  am  happy  with  the  results  so  far.

 Super  lush  growth.  But  your  Hygros  already  started  to  block  the  lights.  How  about  replacing  them  with  something  narrower?

 Nice  Suraj,  very  pleasant  tank.   Clapping  
 
 But  I  am  surprised  that  the  growth  is  not  very  bushy,  looks  more  like  a  Diana  Walstad  kind  of  growth  with  individual  plants  doing  well  and  healthy  but  missing  the  thickness.  I  wonder  if  the  short  light  period  has  to  do  anything  with  it?
