 Your  tank  looks  nice,  Gginish.  
 
 But  you  will  have  problems  with  your  fish.  They  are  not  the  right  combo  at  all.  I  think  the  tank  is  newly  set  up.  Your  lighting  is  too  low  to  sustain  all  your  plants.  Increase  your  lighting  and  work  on  a  different  fish  combination.  Don't  even  think  of  adding  Serpae  tetras  or  plecos  to  this  tank  unless  you  would  like  to  see  some  damage.

 hi
   thanks  4  the  coments  
 this  Tank  is  been  set  up  for  3  months  now,  also  the  light  i  have  put  is  the  
 red/  pink  aqua  light  only  in  the  morning  for  15  min  in  the  morning  to   just   feed  my  fish  b4  i  leave   for  office  --  after  which  i  turn  on  the  other  02  lights
 
 these  fishes  are  these  since  my  tank  setup,  or  may  be  even  b  for  i  added  these  plants  ,  no  much  fish  loss,  just  4  neons  initally  &  only  my  pink  zebra
 use  to  eat  my  guppy  babies  that  it...  so  i  x  chaged  them
 
 **  please  recmend  me  any  additional  good  fish  4  my  tank
 
 **  water  change  one  a  week  40%  &  cleaning  the  fiter  sponge  
 
 floating  water  sprite  is  the  paradise  for  guppy  babies  Smile  
 also  my  blue  rams  have  spawned  3  times  but  the  eggs  turned  white
 &  they  ate  their  eggs  --  actually  i  didnt  knew  waht  to  do  with  it  Sad  
 
 thanks  n  Regards

 Nice  pictures.
 But  apparently  the  thickness  of  gravel  seems  to  be  a  little  less.(it  may  be  an  illusion).Mainly  at  the  middle  region  it  seems  to  b  too  thin  a  layer.
 Also  the  Lighting  seems  inadequate.
 Any  way  good  work  done...  Thumb Up

 Hi  Ginish,
 
 Neat  set  up  and  I  think  it  would  look  even  more  better  with  the  moss  growing  the  way  it  usually  does!  I  guess  there  is  a  lot  of  disturbance  by  the  gara's  and  more  over  once  they  grow  up  they  will  not  do  a  good  job.  
 
 This  tank  has  a  ptential  for  a  good  tetra  setup.
 
 Regards,
 Surya

 Hi  Ginish
 
    First  off  A  good  effort!!   Clapping  The  change  made  is  good  but  the  white  pebbles  used  is  a  bit  too  striking  and  takes  a  lot  off  the  aquascaping.  If  possible  try  a  light  earth  tone  sand  instead  will  make  the  feel  a  lot  more  natural.  You  dont  have  to  remove  the  white  pebbles  just  put  the  selected  sand  on  top  of  it.  I  can  see  what  you  are  trying  to  achive  but  you  will  get  better  depth  in  the  tank  if  you  remove  the  big  white  stones  at  the  back  and  narrow  the  sand  toward  the  back.
    The  lights  definately  seem  inadequate  if  you  already  havent  changed  it  look  into  it.  Recomendation  for  the  lights  will  depend  on  the  dimensions  of  the  tank,  do  give  that  information  to  us.
    All  the  best!!
 
 Regards
   Harshal

 hi
 
 Harshal:  Thanks  for  the  advise  will  try  overlay  the  white  with  few  golden  sand  --  the  white  stones  are  to  hold  the  acrylic  partition  that  i  have  made  btwen  the  black  n  white  sand  to  avoid  mixing-
 
 Lights  -  2x  20  wt  florosnt  light  +  i  blue  T4

 Why  a  blue  light?  Confused  I  think  its  useless  in  planted  aquaria.
 
 It  will  better  if  you  put  2x20  watts  6500K  flourecnt  day  light  tube  with  a  single  20  watts  color  flourecent  tube.  IMO
