 Nice  tank!!
 There  was  a  thread  somewhere  the  Bamboo  thing  is  poisonous,  so  if  shrimp  gets  a  bite  of  it,  it  will  say  Buh  bye!  Razz
 remove  that..and  a  messy  job  with  the  thormocol  there,  i  dont  think  it  needs  that,  even  if  it  does,  u  couldve  got  a  Thinner  one  for  that  tank..
 Anyway  Good  tank   Thumb Up

 Thats  a  pretty  good  job  Ganesh.  My  only  concern  is  the  water  fall  from  the  HOB.  
 
 The  height  of  the  fall  causing  more  turbulence  leading  to  muddy  water  and  also  with  water  spraying  on  the  glass  causing  white  stains.  
 
 If  you  could  use  more  rocks  to  create  a  nice  gentle  waterfall  effect  it  would  do  a  world  of  good  to  the  appearance  and  even  growth  of  emersed  plants.
 
 You  could  even  hide  the  HOB  that  way.  I  hope  i  have  made  my  point  clear.  Thumb Up

 Try  moving  the  HOB  to  back  towards  the  left  corner  over  the  rocks.

 @  angel_lover
 
 that  was  really  concerning  me....
 
 i  was  like,  if  the  filter  is  fit  at  back,  due  to  cont  water  movement  the  rock  arrangement  stability  will  be  challenged.
 
 the  rock  arrangement  prove  to  be  pretty  strong  in  my  test  (press  test  on  random  places);  still  continuous  water  movement  might  harm...
 
 Let  me  try  to  have  the  filter  on  the  back  and  observe   Smile  ....  
 
 @Nick993
 
 It  is  not  bamboo,  but  some  rock.  We  were  not  able  to  get  thinner  Thermocoal...

 thats  good  suggestions  there  Rahul,  i  echo  the  same.
 
 Ganesh  -  i  hope  the  water  you  have  used  is  from  an  old  tank  or  cycled  water......if  not  hope  live  stock  survives  the  high  ammonia  content  in  this  new  setup.
 
 Cheers,

 I  am  more  interested  on  how  are  keeping  the  RES  and  how  are  you  feeding  them?
 What  kind  of  lights  you  have  used  in  the  tank?  
 
 Please  use  a  UV  lamp  for  the  RES.

 Welcome  Ganesh,
 
 For  further  information  please  look  into  the  http://www.redearslider.com/
 A  vast  ocean  of  knowledge  on  RES  and  read  properly  and  I  am  sure  it  will  help  you.
 
 RES  is  not  very  difficult  to  keep  but  it  is  very  demanding  on  food  and  habitat  and  basking.
 Be  careful  on  the  Salmonella  infection  everytime  you  handled  them  and  wash  your  hand  throughly  with  soap  and  disinfectant.  
 
 One  more  seggestion  for  keep  your  tank  water  clear  that  bring  them  out  of  the  tank  and  place  them  in  a  small  tub  full  of  water  and  then  feed  them  there.  make  sure  the  water  is  not  too  much  and  not  upto  the  brink.  
 They  feed  in  water  in  their  natiral  habitat  and  leave  them  sometime  in  the  water  after  feeding  so  that  they  can  poop  as  well  in  the  same  water.  You  can  throw  the  water  away  and  put  them  back  in  the  tank.
 
 The  temp  difference  should  not  be  too  much  betwee  tank  and  tub.  U  may  put  out  a  little  warm  (not  HOT)water.
 Maintain  the  tank  temp  and  feed  them  green  and  nonveg  and  calcium  dust.
 
 All  the  best.
