 Nice  start!  
 
 Few  suggestions...
 
 The  rocks  can  be  removed  its  distracting.
 The  hair  grass  has  to  be  planted  strand  by  strand  for  it  to  grow  better  and  spread  faster.
 The  tank  requires  more  plants  or  youll  have  algae  soon.  
 
 Good  luck.

 Thanks  Prem,
 
 I  have  placed  them  temporarily  till  i  get  good  looking  rocks,  Anyways  will  remove  them.
 I  thought  I  will  remove  the  hair  grass  &  replant  them  strand  by  strand  after  it  settles  in  my  tank.  Now  its  20  days  old  is  it  safe  to  replant  or  should  i  need  to  wait  for  some  more  time.
 Will  be  adding  some  more  hairgrass  in  foreground  shortly,  when  i  remove  that  rocks  will  have  space  in  midrow  and  there  is  some  place  in  backgroung.  Can  you  please  suggest  some  plants  for  that  place.

 Thanks  Naveen.  You  will  find  dry  yeast  in  all  major  grocery  stores,  as  i  understand  from  previous  posts,  Eagle  brand  is  the  good  one.  If  you  dont  get  that  you  can  use  other  brands  like  Everest,  Natural,  etc.

 Nice  Start  Vishwa.  Wish  you  a  good  luck!!
 
 Since  this  is  going  to  take  some  time  to  have  a  great  scape,  I  would  suggest  not  to  add  anymore  hairgrass.  Once  you  plant  them  strand  by  strand  you  can  see  them  spreading.  Hence  you  can  think  of  few  other  plants  to  cover  the  area.  If  the  hairgrass  comes  free,  you  can  use  them  ;-)  
 
 Once  again  wish  you  a  good  luck   Thumb Up

 Hi  Ravi,
 
 Thank  you.  For  replanting  hair  grass  should  i  wait  till  they  settle  well  or  i  can  do  that  now  only  because  my  Corydoras  are  always  hanging  around  the  hair  grass  so  i  fear  after  replanting  it  will  uproot  some  of  them.  Can  you  suggest  some  nice  looking  &  easily  available  plants  for  mid  &  background.
 
 Thanks,
 -Vishwa.
