Since  you  have  just  set  it  up  why  dont  you  switch  to  the  dry  start  method  to  get  a  nicce  carpet  of  HC  even  faster  ?
 
 BTW  great  start  and  welcome  to  the  hobby  !                

 
 Nice  suggestion.  Try  to  go  for  dry  start  if  you  really  have  patience.  Immersed  setup  will  take  a  long  time(according  to  me  at  least  2  months)  to  form  carpet  but  its  a  good  way  to  make  a  algae  free  carpet.  In  the  mean  time  you  can  try  to  get  more  rocks  of  same  colour.

 Abhi  Da,  nice  start.  Now  the  challenge  is  to  maintain  and  mature  this  scape.
 
 Couple  of  points,
 
 1.  Temparature  is  on  higher  side.  Better  to  take  it  down  to  26-25  degree  using  a  fan.
 2.  Why  80%  everyday  water  change  in  such  a  small  tank?  30-40%  in  every  2-3  days  should  be  fine.
 3.  Make  sure  you  are  changing  the  water  after  light  out.  Otherwise  CO2  level  will  fluctuate  under  high  light  and  algae  will  be  there.
 4.  And  why  you  need  that  HOB  for  this  tank??  That  power  filter  should  do  the  job.
 5.  Time  to  start  dosing  K  and  Micros.  
 
 ATB   Thumb Up

 usually  this  kind  of  setup  need  rocks  of  the  same  color  and  region.
 sorry  to  say  but  your  rocks  have  killed  the  basic  theme.
 
 please  do  not  mind  my  comments  and  i  am  not  an  expert.  but  i  believe  when  you  make  some  thing  it  should  look   natural.
 
 your  rocks  need  to  change.
