 Hi  guys,
 
 This  is  the  business  end  of  my  hobby,  where  things  aren't  so  slow(unlike  low-tech  tank  you  have  already  seen)..   whis  
 
 After  thinking  a  lot  I  have  finally  decided  to  give  a  preview  of  it.  I  wanted  to  keep  this  in  dark  till  very  end,  but  anyhow  this  wasn't  really  a  serious/creative  attempt  from  scaping  part,  did  it  just  for  the  sake  of  doing  it,  I  never  had  a  tank  with  some  green  lawn/field  effect  and  also  to  be  in  touch  with  aquascaping  after  failing  with  4  consecutive  attempts  before  this.
 
 But  I  should  mention  that  it  was  big  PIA  fighting  algae  outbreaks,  very  very  serious  outbreaks,  thanks  to  long  power  cuts  a  few  times  here,  that  killed  nitrifying  bacteria  in  my  filter  and  an  imbalanced  tank  is  like  a  person  with  a  broken  backbone,  once  bacteria  dies,  it  takes  long  time  to  re-cycle  again.
 I  had  terrible  algae  blooms  that  turned  water  so  opaque  that  I  couldnt  even  see  beyond  2"  inside  the  tank.  At  times  I  just  wanted  to  throw  away  the  whole  tank  and  quit  with  high  maintenance  setups  for  a  few  months.  But,  thank  God,  somehow  it  got  through  all  that.  I  am  relieved  now..
 
 
 
 I  never  expected  HC  to  fill  up  so  soon,  it  overtook  all  other  plants  to  my  surprise..
 
 
 Its  a  fairly  low  light  setup  running  on  2x36w  PLLs,  so  I  plan  to  add  a  few  more  T5s  especially  for  elatine  triandra  as  its  showing  some  light  deficiency  and  also  for  the  photoshoot.
 Also,  I  need  to  get  some  fishes  for  it.
 
 Its  still  a  W.I.P.
