 Cover  up  the  unused  AS  as  soon  as  possible.  The  scape  looks  good.  But  i  am  not  sure  if  you  get  enough  light  to  grow  low  plants  and  stems.  Also  with  plant  load,  you  need  minimum  5bps  CO2  for  this  tank.

 Some  more  snaps….
 
 After  I  set  up  my  tank,  I  was  out  of  station  for  3  weeks.  Once  I  was  back,  my  tank  was  full  of  algae  Sad  Sad  .  I  could  remove  only  70-80%  of  it.  Most  of  the  algae  are  stuck  with  the  moss.  When  I  try  to  remove  them,  the  moss  is  coming  out  with  it.  Please  advise  how  to  get  rid  of  the  algae.

 Sounds  like  Hair  Algae.  
 Remove  as  much  as  you  can.  
 Do  a  massive  water  change.  
 Increase  CO2
 Introduce  algae  eating  fishes  (Rosy  barbs  eat  Hair  Algae  but  they  may  nibble  on  new  plant  leaves  too)
 
 If  the  above  does  not  work,  do  a  3  day  black  out.
 
 What  about  ferts  dosing?
 
 Cheers
 
 Vince

 looks  awesome.......adding  some  stems  to  plant  densely  would  surely  be  good  for  reducing  algae...but  i  feel  the  whole  look  of  your  tank  might  change....  so  be  choosy  on  what  stems  you  choose.....  
 
 personally  i  like  it  the  way  it  is  now   Thumb Up  
 good  luck  in  getting  rid  of  the  algae.....  ill  keep  an  eye  out  on  how  your  tank  progresses  Smile
