 Nice  one  Tirtha.  I  can  see  you  have  tied  two  pieces  of  driftwood  together  and  both  the  pieces  are  branching  into  each  other.
 If  possible  remove  the  left  piece  and  allow  it  to  branch  outwards,  it  would  look  more  nice.

 Tirtha,
 
 Lovely  pieces  of  wood,  but  I  would  agree  with  Prem  here.  While  currently  the  base  of  the  left  hand  side  piece  is  at  a  45  degree  angle  to  the  slate,  I  would  suggest  you  let  the  base  rest  flat  on  the  slate.  That  would  give  a  lovely  outward  branching  effect  all  around  and  also  creat  a  little  space  in  the  middle,  which  you  could  conceivably  fill  with  stems,  or  even  some  bolbitis/  java  fern/  moss.  Whatever  you  choose  to  do  with  it,  I  believe  that  this  arrangement  would  maximize  the  beauty  of  the  wood  pieces.  At  the  moment,  IMO,  it  is  not  at  its  full  potential.  Do  give  it  a  thought.   Thumb Up

 Sad  that  you  ripped  off  your  tank.  You  could  do  better  with  the  wood  though.  Why  not  use  them  as  individual  pieces,  both  facing  away  from  the  center  or  both  at  opposite  ends,  facing  each  other.

 Camy/Ashwin,  thanks  for  the  valuable  input.  Take  a  look  below  for  the  2  piece  of  woods  what  I  have  used  to  make  this  structure.  
 
 Left  One::
 
 
 
 Right  One
 
 
 
 
 You  both  are  right  that  left  wood  is  branching  into  the  right  wood  and  it  should  not  be  like  that.  But  the  main  problem  is  the  left  one  is  having  very  few  branches  which  are  outwards  but  the  right  one  have  lots  of  branches  which  is  going  straight  upwards.  If  I  put  the  left  branches  outwords  then  there  will  be  huge  gap  inbetween  the  2  woods  and  that  is  looking  really  ugly.  The  next  problem  is  the  size  of  the  woods.  As  Ashwin  said,  If  I  would  let  it  branch  outwards  to  the  front,  I  will  not  have  any  space  at  background  for  planting  and  the  whole  structure  has  to  be  moved  towards  the  back  glass.  Even  after  getting  this  inward  structure,  it  is  taking  arround  2  feet  width.  Let  me  try  out  this  one  with  plantation  and  see  how  it  comes  out.  Otherwise  anytime  we  can  change  it.  Smile

 Unni....  agree  with  you.  I  should  give  the  last  scape  minimum  3  months  to  mature.  But  the  problem  is  time.  It's  Jan  already  and  after  3months  only  Gurgaon  summer  will  start.  That  time  I  wont  be  able  to  try  any  moss  in  my  tank.  So  If  I  start  this  scape  now,  then  I  will  have  3  months  time  to  see  it  matured.

 Dinesh,  according  to  the  inputs  I  had  to  remove  the  Tumb  Stone  from  the  tank.And  if  I  remove  it,  why  not  trying  out  something  different,  when  specially  I  got  hold  of  some  driftwoods?  It  was  really  hard  to  resist  trying  out  the  woods.   Very Happy

 After  seeing  your,  camy's  and  Ashwins  comment  Now  I  have  to  give  a  try  to  the  wood  structure  once  again.  Will  try  to  place  them  outwards  and  will  post  all  the  tryouts.

 I  am  not  going  to  do  any  processing  with  these  woods.  I  will  just  drop  them  in  tank.  Already  I  have  kept  1  piece  in  my  tank  and  there  is  no  leaching.  May  be  I  will  get  little  bit  of  Fungus  on  the  wood,  but  it's  ok  for  me.  :)
 
 Don't  wait  for  the  wood  to  sink.  Attach  it  with  a  heavy  rock  and  drop  it  into  aquarium.

 My  daughter  keeping  me  too  busy  now  a  days  and  I  could  not  able  to  update  the  Journal  for  a  long  time.  10th  Of  January  I  rescaped  the  tank.  Added  some  new  plants  and  removed  the  big  rocks.  This  is  how  the  tank  looks  like  after  13  days.
 
 Night  Shot  with  2  T8  Tubes.
 
 
 
 Right  after  the  setup,  I  became  busy  running  between  Hospital  and  Home  and  the  tank  got  Nasty  Green  Water  attack  along  with  GDA.  2  Days  back  I  have  added  3  Ottos,  2  Common  Pleco  along  ith  4  Angels  and  some  rams.  Within  2  nights  90%  GDA  wiped  away.  Now  am  left  with  Green  Water.  Will  use  Daphnia  to  remove  them  if  I  can  find  a  starter  culter  otherwise  have  to  invest  on  an  UV  sterilizer.
 
 Don't  ask  me  to  post  a  picture  when  Lights  are  on,  cause  in  Day  time  water  is  80%  cloudy.   Thumb Down
