 Cool  setup  Suraj.  It  looks  beautiful.
 
 But  the  empty  area  really  need  some  more  plants.  How  about  2-3  Echinodorus  Ozelot  at  left  behind  corner..  
 
 And  the  round  stone  at  the  front  is  looking  bit  artificial.  If  you  push  it  half  into  substrate  then  it  will  be  more  natural  looking.
 
 But  again,  really  a  neat  setup.

 looks  good  suraj.
 You  might  put  in  a  dark  background,  and  remove  the  stones,  if  you  get  flat  grantie  type  of  stones  they  might  look  even  better.
 IMHO,  leave  the  epmty  space  as  it  is  Very Happy  
 We  seem  to  be  getting  more  amano  type  of  setups.

 The  round  stones  were  just  picked  up  from  my  garden  and  are  going  to  be  replaced  shortly.  One  of  the  reasons  why  I  haven't  dug  them  into  the  gravel.
 The  java  moss  on  the  right  is  free-floating  and  hence  looks  a  bit  over  planted  on  the  right.  I  am  just  leaving  it  there  for  fry  to  feel  secure.

 I  too  like  the  empty  space.  I  have  the  background  ready,  too  lazy  to  put  it  on  the  back.  However,  I  am  trying  to  experiment  with  a  moss  wall  inside  and  so  have  kept  it  on  hold.

 Thanks,  Rocky.  I  had  this  piece  of  driftwood  with  me  for  over  a  year,  picked  it  up  from  a  friend.
 
 Thanks,  Prem.  The  substrate  is  over  a  year  and  a  half  old.  The  setup  is  about  a  month  old  now.

 Hi  Suraj,
 
 Thats  a  cool  tank.  Simple  and  Beautiful.  As  Sandeep  has  suggested,  a  black  film  behind  will  give  a  good  getup.
 What  filtration  are  you  using.

 Thanks,  Shivendu  and  Sushant.  This  tank  may  have  to  be  shifted,  so  I  am  letting  it  remain  the  same  before  going  in  for  any  makeover/additions.
 
 Here's  an  update.  I  need  to  replace  the  lights,  so  my  ferns  are  not  doing  so  well.  Windelov  has  taken  the  hardest  hit  of  all.  Leaves  browning  out  and  dying.  Java  Moss  and  Anubias  nana  doing  fine.  
 
 I  was  trying  out  to  see  how  well  moss  would  grow  emersed  and  I  am  impressed.
 
 
 Each  of  the  Anubias  has  sprouted  atleast  two  new  leaves.  In  my  hi-tech  tank,  I  get  new  leaves  almost  every  other  day.  So  that  sums  the  difference  in  growth  between  CO2  and  non-CO2.
