 Name:  Poorbo  Ghat(Eastern  Ghat)
 
 Tank:8gal
 
 Substrate:Vermicompost,  Humus,  Cococpeat  and  laterite  as  main  substrate  and  golden  sand  as  teh  top.
 
 Lighting:  Yet  not  decided
 
 CO2:  DIY
 
 Decoration:  Rocks  from  Local  stone  dealer
 
 Flora:HC(Hemianthus  Cuba)  and  Dwarf  HG.
 
 Fauna:  Not  decided,  might  be  first  try  with  shrimp
 
 Some  earlier  Hardscape  trials:
 
 
 
 Starts  with  Vermicompost  and  Humus:
 
 After  laterite  and  again  mixing  with  Vermicompost  and  Humus:
   
 After  full  laterite:
 
 Starting  the  final  layer  with  golden  sand:
 
 Dont  laugh  on  my  weapon  use  to  do  the  scape:

 Not  yet  wet,  not  sure  about  the  final  layer...so  will  wait  for  some  small  sized  final  layer  and  also  some  small  stones  to  get  the  final  look...
 
 Need  all  your  your  suggestions  for  betterment.

 good  start.  
 
 i  belive  you  can  lift  the  stones  little  up  to  make  it  more  visible.  
 
 I  think  it  will  look  better  with  darker  top  layer  (mab  be  black  sand).  
 
 Good  luck

 I  like  the  characteristics  of  the  rock  .....  has  a  lot  of  potential.
 
 IMO  The  Rocks  have  been  buried  too  deep  and  a  lot  of  their  character  has  been  hidden,  If  possible,  lift  the  rocks  out  a  bit

 Any  ways  gud  luck  Thumbs Up

 Thanks  a  lot  for  your  words  Amazonian,Deepak,Seetharam,  Titash  and  Sushant
 
 @Sushant  and  Deepak:  I  am  changing  the  top  layer  with  contro  soil  as  the  top  layer  sized  larger  and  due  to  the  color  also.
 
 @Deepak,  Seetharam  and  Titash:  Got  your  point  to  lift  the  stone,  actually  these  stones  are  really  huge  for  this  tank,  I  intentionally  buried  more  inside  the  substrate  to  get  the  correct  proportion,  but  now  after  your  words  it  seems  that  I  buried  more  inside.  Also  want  to  know,   just  to  take  out  more  character  lines  of  the  rocks,  should  lift  the  rocks?  Whether  the  proportion  will  be  correct  if  I  lift  the  rocks.  Need  your  words.

 Its  good  except  for  the  top  sand  as  mentioned.  The  texture  and  colour  dont  suit  the  rocks  and  tank  imo

 I  dont  see  any  filter  in  the  pics,  how  do  u  manage  without  filter?  Also  for  sand  substrated  what  filter  is  good  one  that  does  not  clouds  the  water?

 I  have  a  big  doubt.
 When  you  had  nice  grained  sand  in  the  begining  two  pictures,  why  did  you  add  the  large  gravel?
 
 For  me  the  1st  two  look  very  nice,  with  the  rocks  not  burried.
 
 Catch  my  point?

 Good  one  Partha  !!!  Like  your  scape!  Probably  could  have  used  a  darker  substrate  but  then  maybe  it  will  get  hidden  after  planting  that  is  if  you  intend  to  have  a  nice  carpet

 Mortis,  Vidyasagar,Balaji,  Bettaji...thanks  you  all  liked  it.
 
 Balaji@  If  I  am  not  wrong  HOB  is  one  of  the  best,  or  canister  is  super  best.  here  I  have  not  filled  with  water  yet  so  filter  is  not  there,  but  I  will  use  Boyu  mini  internal  filter.
 
 Sai@Still  you  think  in  earlier  trials  the  proportion  of  the  frame  of  the  tank  and  the  rocks  are  good.  And  regarding  sand,  I  thought  it  will  be  too  fine  for  proper  rooting  for  the  plants,  I  might  be  wrong,  you  have  earlier  also  told  me  so  many  people  are  using  the  sand  only,  but  still  thought  river  sand  would  be  better  option.  Now  I  have  decided  to  use  Contro  soil  for  the  upper  layer.  What  you  say.
 
 Supro@  First  trial  I  have  kept  for  some  other  little  bit  bigger  tank...thanks  you  liked  it.
 
 Bettaji@you  are  absolutely  right.  But  "nice  carpet"  in  my  dream.  lolz.

 RIver  sand  -/-  golden  sand  -/-  lake  sand...etc  all  are  one  and  the  same  chemically  =  Neutral(unless  some  dirt  comes  in).
 Why  I  liked  the  yellow  sand  was  it  was  in  tune  with  the  yello/orange  rocks,  looked  very  natural.  Black  would  look  like  "white  rockets  landing  on  Alien's  land"
 Thats  my  'IMHO'.
 
 Im  quite  a  stingy  guy,  so  will  not  dishearten  your  Contro-exploration.  Very Happy  
 
 Just  see  to  it  that  you  have  everything  other  than  just  ssubstrate,  properly  established,  and  dont  go  for  anything  but  HC  as  FG  Thumb Up  
 
 Good  luck  and  looking  forward  for  your  weekend's  update.
