 Hi  guys,
 
 Quick  phone  update.  Added  Potamogeton  gayi  in  the  background.  It's  looking  odd,  but  will  trim  it  once  it  sets  in  the  tank.  Added  more  tenellus  too,  and  changed  the  position  of  anubias.  Some  pics  Smile  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Planning  to  add  some  pinnatifida  in  front  of  the  gayi.  Will  get  2-3  more  crypt  parva  from  my  older  tank.  Got  some  anubias  lancelota  will  need  to  tie,  plan  and  place  it  in  there.  
 
 Cheers,
 
 Karthik

 Dear  Karthik,
 The  tank  is  shaping  up  nicely.
 A  few  things  to  ponder  about  -  
 The  left  one-third  of  the  tank  with  the  plain  rock  and  anubias  now  seem  out  of  sync  with  the  rest  of  the  tank.  
 You  have  a  bright  green  flow  through  the  rest  of  the  tank,  with  the  two  serrated  stones.
 
 Keep  an  eye  out  on  the  BBA  (or  some  other  form)  at  the  edges  of  the  ferns.
 
 Thanks,
 Arin

 Thanks  Arin.  Smile  I've  taken  out  the  anubias  from  there.  I  am  looking  for  another  similar  looking  stone.  The  left  most  stone  would  be  replaced  with  that  if  I  find  the  stone.  
 
 There's  bba  on  ferns.  But  I've  chopped  some  leaves.  Will  update  the  pics  later.  
 
 Cheers,
 
 Karthik

 Another  update.  Took  off  the  anubias  from  the  left  hand  side  background  and  planted  some  p.gayi  there  as  well.  Also,  got  some  TC  S.repens  and  rotala.  They  seem  to  be  growing  well.  Some  pics:  
 
 S.  Repens  (behind  the  crypt)  growing  well:  
 
 
 
 Rotala  (under  the  dw):  
 
 
 
 FTS
 
 
 
 Now  will  have  to  wait  and  watch  how  the  plants  grow.  Still  have  to  add  Vals  (background)  and  Pinnatifida  (mid  ground).  
 
 Cheers,  
 
 Karthik

 You  should  restrict  plant  varieties,  too  many  cooks  spoil  the  broth  you  know..  I  suggest  valisneria  nana,  rotola  or  Elocharis  acicularis  for  back  ground,  P.Gayi  wont  look  nice.

 Sure  sir..  point  noted.  I  will  restrict  the  amount  of  plants  and  minimise  the  presence  of  p  Gayi.

 Update:  Added  Vallisneria  Nana  (background),  Trident  Fern  (midground),  Oak  Fern  (background  and  some  midground)  and  more  tenellus  in  the  foreground.  Need  to  trim  the  P  gayi,  its  growing  like  a  weed.  
 
 
 
 Some  Horadandia:
 
 
 
 And  the  lovely  Black  neons:  
 
 
 
 Dont  know  which  of  the  above  fish  to  add  more..  
 
 Cheers,

 OK,  while  I  was  excited  about  the  adding  of  P.Gayi,  it  caught  a  lot  of  BBA  and  never  grew  well.  Added  Echinodorus  Marble  Queen  in  the  BG.  Planning  to  add  more  Vals  and  some  Rotala  too  there.  The  ferns  have  been  growing  well,  harvested  the  new  "baby"  ferns  and  planted  it  on  the  sides.  Tenellus  and  crypt  too,  have  been  growing  well,  in  addition  to  the  Anubias.  However,  S.Repens  is  showing  signs  of  melting  away,  probably  because  of  dosing  only  Flourish  Excel.  There's  growth  of  the  green  spot  algae  and  small  amount  of  BBA  on  the  stones.  
 
 
 
 Still  awaiting  my  canister  filter,  Clueless  on  How  (and  if)  I  can  remove  the  remaining  water  level  marks  Sad  
 
 Cheers,

 Not  much  of  an  update,  C  helferi,  ferns,  echinodorous  are  growing  really  well.  Pinnatifida  is  picking  up.  Pruned  lot  of  stems  and  planted  them  back.  Expecting  them  to  grow  and  cover  the  background  soon.  Added  an  Anubias  Lancelota  too.  Cleared  that  water  marking  on  the  top,  need  to  work  on  the  other  one  in  the  middle  too.  
 
 
 
 Let's  see  how  it  goes..  
 
 Cheers,
