 First  60%  water  change  done  today  and  5  Amano  Shrimps  added  to  the  Tank  (Why  only  5  you  may  ask  for  a  tank  that  size  .....  well  thats  all  i  had   Sad   .......  about  30  -  40  Cherry  Red  Shrimps  will  be  added  tomorrow)
 
 A  few  suggestions  have  been  implimented  which  are  below
 
 Actions  based  on  Adip's  suggestions:
 
 1.  The  jumbled  up  mess  was  actually  Cryp  Wendetii  Green  which  has  been  trimmed  off  the  older  leaves  now  and  is  looking  much  better.
 
 2.  The  lone  Anubia  has  been  given  some  company  with  another  Anubia  cutting.
 
 3.  The  branch  that  was  different  has  been  cut  off
 
 Hunting  for  another  piece  of  driftwood  which  will  fill  a  little  bit  of  the  gap  on  the  right.
 
 Actions  based  on  Pradeeps's  suggestions:
 
 1.  The  river  has  been  given  a  curve  to  the  left  as  it  touches  the  rear  glass
 
 Thanks  for  the  input  guys   Thumb Up  
 
 Dont  have  the  camera  with  me  as  of  now  ,  so  could  not  take  a  picture,  will  be  posting  a  picture  over  the  weekend.

 this  will  turn  out  amazing.  
 
 some  things  that  is  itching  me..  
 
 1.  from  front  its  looking  flat..  
 2.  needs  something  to  be  done  with  the  background  plants  on  the  right.  may  be  some  lengthier  and  bushier  plants  will  look  better..
 3.  the  drift  wood  over  the  river  is  looking  unnaturally  big.  A  big  tree  that  is  totally  over  the  river  is  not  looking  that  great..
 
 just  suggestion  of  a  newbie..  
 
 cheers  and  best  of  luck..

 I  do  not  like  the  drift  wood  on  the  right  side...
 I  think  your  right  side  needs  another  driftwood  complimenting  the  driftwoods  on  the  left  side...this  is  an  option,  you  may  do  some  thing  else  to  make  it  more  beautiful..but  present  scape  of  the  right  patch  looks  feeble.
 
 I  dislike  the  algae  ball  on  the  placement,  it  is  very  distracting  
 Placements  of  the  anubias  on  the  right  side  is  not  per  my  liking,  I  would  like  to  put  them  at  nooks  and  corners  than  keeping  them  in  the  open  spaces.
 
 Just  a  few  of  the  things  that  I  would  have  done  if  this  was  my  tank.
 
 Good  tank  otherwise...Thumb Up

 Hi  Seetharam,  it  looks  very  good  and  plants  are  healthy.  The  hair  grass  in  background  looks  little  loosely  planted  to  my  view.  Excepting  that,  it  looks  beautiful   Thumb Up

 Hi  Seetharam,
 
 IMO   the  tank  looks  realy  nice  with  the  placement  of  the  driftwood  which  compliments  the  drift  wood  on  the  left  side.  
 
 However,  you  probably  will  have  to  move  the  anubia  from  the  right  side(  Middle  on  the  moss)  to  the  left  side  as  it  kinda  distracts  the  scape  and  the  view.
 
 Regards,
 Surya

 The  tank  is  going  good  but  it  will  be  too  early  to  comment  on  the  scape.  It  all  depends  on  the  plants  and  how  they  are  filling  in.  
 
 Seetha,  One  thing  I  must  say  you.  Introduce  Stems  at  the  back  of  both  the  side.  Otherwise,  only  using  Anubias,  Grass  and  Moss  it  will  be  difficult  to  get  the  desired  looks.
 
 Take  a  look  at  the  below  scape.  I  think  it  will  help  you  to  get  some  idea.

 Seetha,
 A  black  background  will  help  to  create  the  depth.  You  may  also  try  to  create  a  mound  type  scape  in  the  right  portion  (the  island  without  the  driftwood).  Overall,  i  think  let  it  mature  for  a  while,  we  are  yet  far  far  away  to  guess  the  final  look.  But  it  should  be  great.  I  just  hope  you  are  much  more  patient  than  me,  who  likes  to  modify  the  aquascape  every  month      Sad

 @  Shameek,  Mitra,  Abhi  7  Deb  -  Thank  You  for  your  comments  and  suggestions.
 
 @  Ravi  -  Yes,  the  E.Vivipara  is  a  bit  loosely  planted,  but  i  frequently  trim  and  keep  plonking  new  stems  back,  so  in  some  time  it  should  be  a  nice  thick  jungle   Smile  
 
 @  Surya  -  Yes,  i  kind  of  agree  with  you  on  the  Anubia  there,  its  a  bit  big  considring  the  placement,  will  be  replacing/moving  that  soon.
 
 @  Tirtha  -  Thank  You  for  your  comments,  there  are  stems  planted  at  the  left  hand  side  behid  the  driftwood  (Ludwiga  Arcuata),  they  still  need  to  grow  a  lot  to  be  visible   Smile  
 
 @  Bappa  -  Putting  a  black  background  now  is  a  bit  difficult  considering  the  way  the  tank  is  kept.  Did  try  the  mound  type  scape  but  it  did  not  look  too  good.  Well  ....  minor  changes  need  to  be  done  to  a  scape  as  it  develops  to  get  the  best  out  at  the  end  .....  and  i  keep  doing  some  minor  changes  every  week  when  i  do  the  water  change   Smile
