 Neat  Tank  !
 I'd  advice  a  bit  more  dense  planting  in  the  back.Plus,  that  rock  on  the  left  is  looking  a  bid  odd.
 Best  of  luck   Smile

 Clapping   nice  setup  ,plant  in  front  of  rock  will  be  better  to  hide  it.

 nice  tank.
 
 Personally,  I  like  the  rock  as  it  lends  a  different  colour  to  the  scape,  and  looks  natural  while  doing  it.
 
 My  only  comment  is  that  it  is  looking  a  little  too  big,  maybe  try  to  reduce  its  visual  mass  by  having  some  low  level  planting  in  front  of  it,  so  that  only  the  top  is  visible.   You  can  even  mound  some  of  the  substrate  up  to  it,  to  provide  a  nice  hillock  type  look.   In  fast  moving  water  bodies  where  there  is  a  largish  obstacle,  you  will  find  the  silt  berming  up  against  it.   I  think  it  will  look  nice.   Try  it  out.
 
 Oh  and  4  neons  for  that  tank  size  sounds  very  light...  need  at  least  another  dozen  methinks...
 
 Farhad.

 Water  is  cloudy  because  its  a  new  setup...  ill  update  new  pics  as  soon  as  finish  the  fore  ground  and  back  ground  planting...
 
 Farhad
 
 thanks  yar.  Actually  its  the  dozen  that  is  reduced  now  to  4  and  dont  want  to  increase  that  because  I  want  it  to  be  shrimp  tank  that  is  the  reason  behind  not  increasing  the  count  further.
 
 And  thanks  for  the  idea  as  well,  will  plant  some  hair  grass  infront  of  the  rock  to  reduce  the  visual  size  of  the  rock...

 Just  noticed  that  there  is  a  grey  coloured  (filter  intake?)  pipe  at  the  left  1/3  of  the  tank.   
 
 Coupled  with  the  fact  that  it  coincides  with  the  least  planted  area  of  the  tank,  it  looks  like  an  eyesore  in  an  otherwise  pleasant  tank.   
 
 Would  you  recommend  you  trying  to  make  it  less  obvious,  maybe  move  to  extreme  left?
 
 Farhad.

 Nice  setup,  I  feel  it  lacks  consistency  throughout,  particularly  larger  plants  on  right  are  looking  odd.  try  and  sort  that  out  if  possible.
