 So,  being  infected  by  the  'Scaping  syndrome'  I've  decided  to  give  a  little  try  to  create  my  own...  And,  I  hope  that  all  the  Masterminds  here  will  help  me  to  get  a  successful  Scape.  And,  no  need  to  say,  that  it  is/will  be  my  First  Ever  Aquasacpe.
 Tank  size:  2ft  x  1ft  x  1.5ft  (lbh)
 Plants:  (  The  first  7  plants  were  new  and  the  rest  I  already  had  growing  in  the  same  tank)
 1)  Aponogeton  crispus  x  2
 2)  Bacopa  carolina  x  5
 3)  Rotala  rotundifolia  Green  x  5
 4)  Shinnersia  Rivularis  x  3
 5)  Hydrocotyle  x  10
 6)  Hemianthus  micranthemum  x  1  bunch
 7)  Hygrophilla  corymbosa  x  2
 Cool  Echinodorus  amazonicus  x  1
 9)  Sagittaria  subulata  (few)
 10)  Cabomba  caroliniana  (few)
 11)  Few  Crypts  (wenditti  &  parvula)
 12)  A  Nymphea  plant  x  1(collected  locally)
 May  be  I  can  use  Flame  &  Singapore  mosses  from  other  tanks.  What  else  needed....  may  get  some  rocks  if  needed..

 Hey!  You  looking  for  a  jungle  theme?
 Everything  really  depends  on  what  look  you're  going  for...  From  your  collection  of  plants,  it  certainly  looks  like  a  nature  style/jungle  style  setup.  The  whole  world  knows  where  to  look  for  inspiration  for  that  kind  of  style...  Wink  ...  who  else  but  the  great  Takashi  Amano

 Just  an  observation...  don't  you  think  you  have  too  many  stem  plants?  The  whole  setup  would  look  very  vertical

 These  many  plants  the  only  option  is  jungle  style....  As  you  will  not  have  space  for  any  hardscape.

 @Athreyan  &  jabba:  Thanks  guys..  So,  by  jungle  style  do  you  mean  that  I  have  to  plant  all  the  plants  randomly,  throughout  the  tank...!?

 Well,  in  a  way  it  is  'random'.  But  there  is  some  method  to  the  madness.
 
 Your  basic  guidelines  still  apply.  tiny  plants  in  the  foreground,  medium  level  plants  in  the  midground,  tall  plants  in  the  back.  Plant  one  species  in  one  area.  Don't  mix  up  different  species  in  the  same  place.  the  'golden  ratio'  also  could  apply.  Also  in  the  jungle  theme,  driftwood  is  used  more  than  stones/rock.  You  can  use  rocks  but  they  are  usually  not  as  dominating  as  in  a  Iwagumi  setup.  ut  that's  really  up  to  you.
 
 Read  up  through  all  the  hundreds  of  forums/threads  you  will  find  on  the  net.  Observe  some  of  the  lovely  aquascape  pictures  available  on  the  net.  My  personal  favorite  is  Oliver  Knott,  and  of  course  the  Almighty  Amano.
 
 Try  this  link  for  inspiration:  AGA  page

 I  hope  that  the  above  pic.  would  be  enough  for  the  experts  to  frame  a  layout..
 @Athreyan:  Yes,  I  will  try  what  you  said.  But,  will  feel  definitely  happy  to  be  guided  step-by-step  by  our  own  members  here.

 @GANESSA:  Thanks.  There  are  no  algae  right  now,  I  have  only  the  stains.  Does  Glut  remove  the  algae  stains?  And  also,  I'm  not  sure  about  the  availability  of  Glut  in  my  area,  but  I  will  try  to  get  it.  So,  is  there  any  other  methods  to  remove  them?

 Previously  i  had  Dictom  in  my  tank,  but  after  using  Glut  it  vanished.  
 Just  scrap  the  algae  from  the  glass  by  using  Old  Credit  card  or  Scorch  Brite  pad  will  works  good  for  this.
