 -and  few  more  Rams  for  a  decent  company.
 
 Hey  and  are  you  looking  for  any  carpet  plants  for  foreground?  it  looks  great  without  one  too.

 @  Mayur  -  Thanks  for  your  comments.  Will  be  posting  a  30,  60  and  90  Day  update.
 
 @  Saikumar  -  Thanks  for  your  comments.  Will  be  putting  in  some  more  fish,  probably  tetras.  Yes  i  am  planning  for  some  carpet  plants,  thats  why  i  have  kept  the  left  hand  side  and  the  front  portion  of  the  tank  untouched......planning  to  wait  for  30  days  to  check  for  the  plant  growth  and  might  go  in  for  some  foreground  plants  which  are  not  very  demanding.

 Hi  Seetharam
 
    Good  start!  Look  into  some  ferns  for  this  tank  it  will  go  well  with  the  hardscape  in  the  tank.  Ofcourse  my  personal  favourite  is  the  Windelow  fern.
    Another  suggetion  on  the  flora  front  would  be  to  get  some  E.Tenellesus  and  plant  them  in  between  the  rocks,  once  the  plant  starts  to  give  out  runners  it  will  fill  up  most  empty  spaces.  Ofcourse  this  way  you  can  also  limit  it  from  growing  into  certain  spaces  enhancing  the  look  of  the  scape.
 
   Hope  this  helps!  All  the  Best!  Thumb Up  
 
 Regards
   Harshal

 Hey  Guys
 
 Was  not  able  to  post  the  30  &  60  day  update  as  i  was  totally  tied  up  with  work.  Posting  a  70  Day  update,  Apologize  for  the  bad  picture  quality  it  was  taken  on  my  cellphone.  Will  post  a  better  picture  over  the  weekend.  
 
 Over  the  past  60  days  the  tank  has  undergone  a  lot  of  changes  and  i  have  highlighted  these  in  Red  in  my  initial  post
 
 Comments  &  Suggestions  Welcome   Very Happy
