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 , 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.

Nice Suraj, very pleasant tank.
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?
