 Hey,  I  was  reading  your  post  on  how  you  rescaped  the  entire  3  feeter  again  on  page  3.  It  was  an  engaging  post.  it  took  you  all  day  and  what  a  beauty!  I  am  sure  this  time  the  tank  will  turn  green  (I  dont  mean  an  algae  bloom!)...all  the  best.  
 
 One  tiny  dumb  question  -  how  did  you  manage  to  crush  the  aquaclay?

 Thanks..  girlcookart,
 I  am  keeping  my  fingers  crossed  and  hoping  for  the  best.  Fortunately  no  signs  of  algae  till  now,  and  the  plants  are  recovering  nicely..
 As  for  the  crushing  the  aquaclay..I  used  the  same  old  technology  used  by  grand  moms  in  pounding  the  spices..  Chuckle

 Well  Guys,
 Its  been  10  days  since  I  did  the  rescape,  and  could  see  nice  recovery  of  the  plants,  and  fortunately  zero  algae  issues..  Cheering  
 The  plants  are  pearling  like  crazy,  especially  the  HM..  I  am  dosing  yeast  co2  and  a  mysterious  liquid  fertilizer  formulated  by  Mr  Deepak  (Deepak267),  given  to  me  for  testing  purpose..  the  Rotala,  Ambulia  and  H.  Polysprema  have  responded  very  well  and  the  crypts  have  settled  in  nicely..
 After  seeing  this  positive  growths,  I  decided  to  add  some  more  plants..  A  big  mat  of  marsilea  which  was  in  emmersed  form,  Utricularia  macrorhiza  (Common  bladderwort)  and  Myriophyllum  Heterophyllum  (Myrio  Red  or  Red  foxtail)..
 
 The  recovery..
 
 
 
 The  Utricularia  macrorhiza..
 
 
 
 The  marsilea  put  out  new  roots  in  just  24  hrs..
 
 
 
 FTS..
 
 
 
 Thanks..  for  all  your  views..  Very Happy

 Thanks,  Ganesaa..
 That's  exactly  what  I  want  to  achieve..  to  cover  up  the  fore  ground  so  that  the  plants  cover  up  the  contrasting  redness  of  the  aquaclay..  Wink

 Nice  tank  Nidhi.  Plants  seem  to  be  growing  out  well.
 
 I  feel  some  more  low  height  green  carpeting  (Dwarf  Hairgrass?)  might  improve  the  look  by  hiding  the  high  contrast  red   /  crystal  rock  scheme  and  give  the  tank  a  generally  softer  and  more  natural  look.  The  taller  plants  in  the  foreground  are  getting  taller  than  the  rocks  there.

 Thanks  jabba,  I  too  had  the  same  feeling  when  I  put  the  new  plants..  I  felt  I  am  trying  to  do  too  much,  and  its  going  wild..
 I  think  I  will  remove  the  new  stem  plants,  but  the  marsilea  will  stay  as  ground  cover  in  the  front....

 Thanks  harshn,  Those  are  marsilea  in  the  front,  those  are  supposed  to  grow  like  glosso.  They  are  just  throwing  long  leaves  because  they  are  acclimatizing  from  emergent  growth  to  submerged..  Yes,  I  too  would  have  liked  Dwarf  Hair  grass..  but  got  hold  of  these  marsilea  very  cheap  and  wanted  to  try  it  for  the  first  time..  I  am  really  curious  as  to  how  these  will  turn  out  in  my  tank.

 Hi  girlcookart,  Its  common  name  is  'Asian  Ambulia',  scientific  name  is  'Limnophila  sessiliflora'..
 Its  a  native  plant..  grows  like  weed  if  basic  needs  are  met..

 Thanks,  but  removed  those  new  plants  as  suggested  by  Fellow  IAH  friends..  Very Happy  
 But  the  marsilea  in  the  fore  ground  is  still  there..  and  kicking  nicely..  Chuckle  
 As  for  the  fishes,  the  tank's  cycling  process  will  take  2-3  months..  so  no  more  fish  will  be  add  until  then,  right  now  have  2  pairs  of  red  eye  tetras,  a  pair  of  rams  and  a  few  natives..
