 Great  driftwood  !  When  it  becomes  complete  ,  it  will  surely  look  great.  :)
 
 You  can  try  Green  Brighty  Step  1  for  better  growth,  and  then  go  along  and  buy  step  II  and  III  later.

 A  wonderful  little  tank  Thumb Up
 It  has  got  a  great  potential,  the  wood  arrangement  is  very  nice,  but  the  wood  seems  to  be  tanning  the  water.
 If  I  were  you,  I  would  have  done  the  following  things...
 1-Replace  the  styrofoam  background  with  sky  blue  background  paper  easily  available  at  LFS.
 2-Use  a  few  pebbles/small  rocks  at  the  base  of  wood(on  the  left),  it'll  give  firm  look.
 3-I  dont  think  its  a  proper  place  for  anubias  nana,  near  the  surface  under  intense  lighting,  instead  it  can  be  effectively  used  below  coffeefolia,  just  before  the  base  of  the  wood.  They  enjoy  dark  areas.Anubias  doesnt  need  a  wood/rocks  to  cling  on,  they  can  be  placed  on  gravel  with  rhisome  above  the  sand.
 4-Use  bunch  of  needleleaf  or  windelov  ferns  at  the  place  where  nana  is  presently  kept.
 5-Dont  use  any  tall  plants  in  right  background,  instead  go  for  blyaxa  japonica  or  e.tenellus.
 
 Goodluck!

 Hi
 
 A  couple  of  pointers  apart  from  what  has  already  been  mentioned...use  green  gain  and  brighty  step  1  along  with  brighty  k.  Do  check  for  ammonia  levels  in  your  tank.  Areate  the  aquarium  at  night.  The  plants  will  look  a  lot  more  healthy  when  you  increase  the  light  into  the  tank.
 
 The  driftwood  placement  is  good!  I  agree  with  hamza  about  the  plant  placement  at  the  right  corner.
 
 All  the  Best!!

 Hi  Hamza  /  Harshal,
 
             Thanks  a  ton  for  the  inputs,  i  will  move  anubius  nana  to  the  front  side,  it  was  in  my  other  wild  discus  tank,  just  moved  it  today,  I  was  trying  real  hard  to  get  some  blyxa  japonica  for  quite  sometime,  but  hard  luck   Sad   still  could  not  get  it,  i  would  clear  the  right  area  and  place  only  blyxas  once  i  get  it.  I  would  change  the  background  to  blue,  which  would  add  a  great  look.  I  also  failed  find  out  needleleaf  or  windelov  ferns  in  bangalore.  i  would  do  it,  once  i  get  them  as  well..
 
 i  will  have  to  start  with  brighty  step  1  along  with  brighty  k.  first  will  Step  up  light  and  provide  some  aereation  at  night.  
 
 Any  ideas  of  where  these  plants  may  be  available  in  bangalore....
 
 Regards,
 Srikanth
