 I  liked  the  tank......
 I  feel  the  light  towards  the  back  is  very  less.  That  is  why  the  stem  plants  in  the  back  is  having  thinned  stems  in  the  bottom.  
 Also  you  need  to  calculate  what  you  are  dosing  and  do  it  properly.Then  only  you  will  learn  that  part.   If  you  see  my  first  post  "The  learning  ground".  Even  I  was  dosing  the  nutrients  that  someone  else  have  given.  In  this  way  I  was  never  sure  of  to  adjust  to  my  requirements.  Dosing  is  one  other  important  factor  that  you  must  know.  You  can  check  my  2nd  scape  post  "Walk  to  the  dreams".  Where  the  experts  have  advised  me  on  how  to  calculate  it.  Follow  it,  as  I  feel  you  need  to  add  the  Macros  as  well.  If  you  are  using  tap  water  for  your  tank  then  Micro  will  be  there  a  little  bit  in  that  water  but  Potassium  will  not  be  there.

 Its  time  to  cut  and  replant  your  stem  plants.  They  are  looking  leggy  and  are  losing  their  bottom  leaves.  You  need  to  pump  up  the  CO2  and  run  atleast  3  staggered  bottles  simultaneously.  The  top  filter  you  will  have  to  get  rid  of  and  replace  with  an  internal  power  of  around  800-1200  lph.  You  also  need  to  start  dosing  macro  fertilizers.
 
 Do  these  few  changes  and  you  will  be  amazed  at  the  improvement  in  your  tank.  Overall  though  you  have  made  a  superb  effort.  Keep  it  up

 Thanks  all  for  the  nice  comments  Smile  
 @Jabba,   
 Yes  you  are  right,  since  PLL  light  not  placed  @  center   due  to  top  filter.  
 Action  item:-  
 a)  Need  to  replace  top  filter  
 b)  Make  DIY  PVC  light  which  will  be  center  of  the  Tank  
 Dosing:-  Very  big  YES,  need  to  buy  Macro,  and  sure  will  read  through  your  two  post  learned  about  dosing  Smile  
 @Sergiomiranda,  Not  sure  i  have  dar  to  Rearranging  plants,  but  have  plans  to  remove  some  of  them.
 @Mortis,  Sure  will  do  some  thing  to  improve  CO2,  In  one  or  two  month  i'll  replace  top  filter  with  Internal  or  External  filter.

 Hi  Jabba,  
 This  tank  has  Top  cover  with  Top  filter  and  light  fixed.  This  full  top  cover  create  Heat  problem  due  to  new  2  PLL  light,  also  i  can  fix  the  light  on  this  top  cover  only  on  the  front,  so  back  side  of  tanks  do  not  get  enough  light.  
 
 So  i  have  to  get  away  with  this  Top  cover  and  do  DYI  PLL  light.  Without  Top  cover  the  top  filter  will  look  ugly   Thumb Down  .  So  i  have  to  buy  some  other  filter   Rock On

 Cool!
 Just  need  to  replace  your  top  filter,  and  you  may  end  up  loosing  lot  CO2!
 Go  for  external,  hassle  free.  Fishes  and  plants  will  enjoy  the  flow
