 Hi  Raju,  Prajin,  Vicky,  Bappa,  Anish,  Maulik  ...  Thanks  a  lot  for  the  encouragement.  
 
 Anish,  The  red  plant  Limnophila  Aromatica  is  a  reasonably  common  plant  or  that's  what  I  have  been  given  to  understand.  It  is  native  plant  too  if  I  am  not  mistaken,  with  a  few  collection  trips  on  the  forum  talking  about  them  being  found.  Mine  was  sourced  from  The  Aquarium  Store  Bangalore.  If  you  are  in  Bangalore,  maybe  next  time  I  trim  them,  I  can  give  you  a  few  stems.  I  just  trimmed  then  a  couple  of  weeks  back.  
 
 I  have  not  started  dosing  yet,  as  mentioned  by  Kshitij  in  one  of  the  earlier  replies  I  guess  the  Amazonia  is  powering  the  growth  for  the  present.  And  I  have  not  mixed  ADA  Amazonia  with  River  sand.  Its  a  split  scape  as  in  they  are  in  separate  zones.  Posting  a  photoshop  generated  image  for  your  reference  on  what  I  wanted  as  a  substrate  plan  when  I  was  starting  up.  
 
 
 Best  Regards

 Very  Good  setup  indeed  .  Seeing  it  in  real  when  I  came  to  collect  the  stems  from  you  was  even  more  amazing.

 Srikantan,
 One  small  suggestion:  Can  the  hygrophillias  be  replaced  with  smething  that  has  smaller  leaves?

 Hi  Mortis  ..  I  had  started  dosing  (do!Aqua  be-Green)  after  month  of  setting  up  the  tank  and  what  it  lead  to  was  a  huge  algae  break  out.  I  stopped  dosing  and  carried  out  a  few  algae  control  measures  like  daily  water  changes,  moved  my  alage  eater  and  otocinclus  from  my  first  tank  to  this  one.  And  added  some  fast  growing  stems  of  Hygrophilla...  Its  almost  another  month  now,  the  alage  seems  to  be  very  much  in  check  ...  now  after  reading  your  opinion  I  am  in  a  quandary  ....
 
 Hi  Bappa...  I  agree  with  you  a  100%  ...  the  huge  leaves  of  the  plant  actually  kills  the  perspective/scale  of  the  tank  ...  it  was  not  there  in  the  original  plan  ...  added  it,  as  I  was  told  fast  growing  stems  will  keep  alage  in  check  as  mentioned  above.  I  need  to  remove  them  ...  Will  do  so  pretty  soon!!!
 
 Regards

 Srikantan,
      The  star  grass  are  doing  pretty  fine  ,  but  I  did  not  have  success  with  the  other  plant  (  Aromatica  ?!  ).  I  guess  they  needed  more  intense  lighting  than  I  have.

 I  think  when  you  remove  the  hygrophil,  before  replacing  it  with  anything  let  the  space  be  empty  and  get  filled  with  the  carpet.  It  might  just  look  stunning  if  the  slope  from  the  left  side  is  smooth  Thumb Up

 Thanks  Giri  ...
 
 Bappa  ...  in  the  original  scape  that  was  planned  that  area  was  just  glosso,  until  I  added  the  hygro  as  mentioned  earlier  ...  now  that  you  too  recommend  it  ...  that's  the  way  I  will  go...

 Very  nice  tank  indeed.   Clapping  
 Fantastic  growth  of  L  Aromatica  and  Glosso.
 Good  hard  scape  on  the  left  side  of  the  tank.
 
 Few  things  that  I  wish  to  change  in  this  tank  are,
 1.  The  split  gravel  effect  is  not  coming,  hence  I  would  have  removed  it.
 2.  The  gap  between  the  L  Aromatica  and  the  Hygrophila  is  nice,  so  I  would  have  raised  the  substrate  there  and  removed  the  crypt  from  there.  Fine  tune  the  gap.
 
 3.  Hygrophila  is  not  my  choice  of  plant  for  the  scape,  it  stands  out  too  much  IMHO.  
 4.  The  rickety  plant  in  front  of  Hygrophila  is  a  weak  point  in  the  tank.  In  fact  I  would  have  changed  the  right  back  ground  plant  selection,  if  this  was  my  tank   Smile  
 
 Saying  all  this,  I  must  also  add  that  these  are  fine  tunings  that  only  surface  when  the  tank  has  reached  a  stage  where  your  tank  is  now.  Just  my  2  pence.  
 
 Congratulations  to  you  and  Mr.  Prabhu  for  a  very  nice  tank.
