 Hey  Sankpal...looking  good,  it  doesnt  look  like  a  lowtech  tank  to  me,  in  a  low  height  tank  you  should  be  able  to  grow  glosso  at  that  lighting.
 Two  flaws,  background  and  the  gravel(looks  artificial).

 @swapnil
 you  could  try  a  CO2  bell.  i  have  one  for  my  CO2  system  and  it  is  working  quite  well.  i  used  a  500ml  soft  drink  bottle  with  the  bottom  cut  off.

 @Hamza
 Thx,  i  know  the  flaws  but  as  i  like  the  tank  they  way  it  look  im  not  willing  to  bring  it  down  to  change  gravel  or  background.  Time  will  do  the  changes.
 
 @  Krishanu
 im  using  airstone.  Gives  out  continuous  bubbles.  And  in  such  a  small  tank  the  bell  will  be  visible  making  the  tank  look  bad.

 hey  Smile  thats  a  nice  looking  tank  now
 Real  big  improvement.
 
 Whole  scape  looks  a  bit  natural/orderly  with  few  variety  plants  Thumb Up  
 and  nice  growth  on  HC  too.
 May  be  you  would  like  some  expert  advice  on  your  glosso  Sad  ,because  2months  is  a  long  time,and  glosso  must  have  settled  a  bit.More  over  glosso  growing  vertical  is  an  issue  too.
 
 BTW  howmuch  of  glosso  and  HC  did  you  start  out  with?
 and,whats  the  temperature  at  your  place/tank?
 
 Good  luck!

 @  SaiKumar
 Thanks  for  the  comments.  I  started  with  25  sticks  of  Glosso  and  1  tray  of  HC.
 I  am  getting  horizontal  growth  but  it  was  infected  with  BBA  so  had  to  snip  it  off  though  the  horizontal  growth  is  very  slow.  Sure  need  some  expert  advice  on  glosso.  The  temperature  is  34D
 
 @  Shameek
 Those  are  old  pics  when  I  had  setup  this  tank.

 Shameek:  I  think  Avadhooth  lost  his  remirezi  pair  due  to  the  mumbai  heat.
 
 Hey  Avadhoot,  i  think  you  are  touching  34  due  to  the  heat  for  your  CFL's,  you  need  to  have  a  work  around  here.

 Even  I  thought  of  the  same.  But  even  when  my  CFLs  are  off  the  temperature  is  34  Degree.  And  when  my  lights  are  on  still  it  remains  34  Degree.  Dont  know  what  is  the  factor  that  maintains  the  temperature  at  34  D  with  and  without  light.  Shocked

 Nice  setup   swapnils  !  Your  tank  has  improved  step-by-step.  Try  growing  some  tropical  hawthorns.   They  will  help  you  hide  your  filtration  equipments.

 You  mean  growing  non  aquatic  plants  in  the  aquarium.  No Way
