 Started  this  nano  two  weeks  back.  
 
 Size:   18inch  *15  inch  *  12  inch(h)
 
 Flora:  HC,  Hairgrass,  Christmas  moss,  Fissiden  fontanus,  Nana  petit,  Chain  sword,  Dwarf  Sagitaria,  Willow  moss(gift  from  Surya).
 
 Fauna:  Wood  shrimp  and  cherry  reds
 
 Pressurized  Co2  and  Boyu  SP-100A  internal  filter.
 
 Light  :  2*36  =  72  Watt  PLL
 
 Dosing  :  1/2  tank  water  change  everyday  morning.  A  pinch  of  KNo3  after  every  water  change.
 
 Tried  to  get  something  similar  to  the  rocky  landscape  which  we  see  around  Bangalore.

 somewhere  on  giving  a  look  from  far  it  looks  symmetric  Sad  Â Very Happy  ...wd  look  complete  for  me  if  there  are  few  vals  just  behind  the  "black  structure"
 Just  my  view  Smile  
 
 ;@  and  what  is  that  black  structure?  and  are  you  hiding  your  filter  behind  it?
 
 
 Regards,
 Saikumar.

 A  small  suggesstion,  the  big  Black  driftwood  sort  of  looks  out  of  place  in  this  tank,  try  a  smaller  lighter  colored  driftwood  to  complete  your  rocky  grassland  wilderness  look.

 Aditya  :   Its  oceanfree  plant  substrate..
 
 Ramkumar  :  Intend  to  keep  only  shrimps  in  this  tank.
 
 Saikumar  :  I  intend  to  keep  this  tank  with  miniature  plants  only..vals  are  too  big  for  a  1ft  height  tank..  I  like  the  ground  like  look  with  the  clear  horrizon..Maybe  I  will  add  a  single  tone  background  behind  to  hide  the  pipes  and  a  few  more  nana  petit  to  represent  a  few  more  bush  and  break  the  monotonity  of  a  single  species.
 
 The  black  structure  is  a  drift  wood  and  yes  its  hiding  the  filter,  Co2  ceramic  diffuser  and  a  ball  of  christmas  moss(hiding  place  for  my  shrimps).  The  base  of  the  drift  wood  is  fissidens  and  the  top  is  willow  moss.

 Impressive  array  of  mosses.  I  am  terribly  jealous  of  people  in  bangalore.  We  are  not  even  able  to  grow  god  dang  java  moss  in  this  hot  climate.

 Lovely  little  set  up,  I  like  the  rock  setup  very  much  and  the  plant  choice...
 
 The  moss  and  fissidens  on  the  driftwood  looks  good  due  to  the  contrust  but  I  think  you  can  find  a  better  choice  of  diftwood  matching  the  set  up.
 
 Lastly,  one  of  the  best  potential  set  ups  that  I  have  seen  here  on  IAH.
 
 Keep  up  the  good  work,  Atanu.

 Yes  I  agree  the  driftwood  is  a  bit  too  thick  for  the  setup  size..  But  I  couldn't  find  another  which  will  look  like  a  dead  tree  stump  from  my  collection.  
 
 The   full  rock  setup  is  made  by  breaking  a  large  piece  into  small  parts  and  chiseling  out  a  few  portions.  I  wanted  all  the  rocks  to  have  the  same  color  tone  and  texture  and  I  didn't  have  enough  of  them  which  has  the  same  texture.

 Very  original  Thumb Up  will  a  black  backdrop  make  it  look  better?  I  think  I  like  it  without  a  backdrop...

 May  be  you  can  take  out  the  driftwood  and  fill  up  the  place  with  Eleocharis  parvula...as  you  already  have  some  rock  set  up  there,  the  monotonity  part  is  taken  care  of....it  will  look  like  a  nice  grassland  with  some  rock  to  give  the  completeness.
 
 Pls  have  a  thought  on  this.
 
 I  always  think  that  less  is  more  when  you  want  to  have  a  striking  tank,  but  that's  my  thought  process.
