 Finally  guys  i  initiated  a  14  x  8  x  12  inch  tank  with  ADA  Amazonia  2  soil  and  36  watt  PLL  with  DIY  CO2.
 
 i  am  posting  the  finalized  scape  of  the  aquarium.
 as  per  the  suggestions  by  Madan  sir  and  other  i  have  finalized  the  scape  so  that  the  hairgrass  planted  will  not  obscure  the  rock.  the  left  most  rock  will  have  hemianthus  micranthemoides  behind  it.
 
 also,  i  will  add  E  vivipara(as  per  suggested  by  Surya  in  the  psots  below)  on  the  rightmost  side(near  the  filter).
 
 the  earlier  setup  can  be  found  below  in  the  post.
 
 tank  specs:  
 size  :  18  x  9  x  12  inch
 light:  36  watt  philips  PLL(on  for  4  hours  a  day)
 CO2  :  DIY  diffused  by  the  powerhead.
 Filter:  250  lph
 Soil:  ADA  amazonia  2
 Rocks:  Bengaluru  rocks  Rock On  
 Flora:  Hairgrass
 Fauna:  Betta
 
 
 
 previous  discussions  for  the  tank  can  be  found  HERE

 The  first  picture  looks  better  than  the  third.   Keeping  the  larger  rock  a  little  to  the  left  slightly  behind  the  smaller  rock  such  that  the  space  between  them  when  seen  from  front  does  not  reach  bottom  would  look  better.

 Also  try  and  add  a  few  small  rocks  scattered  around  with  a  piece  of  driftwood  from  the  behind  the  rocks  for  the  Bolbitis.

 hi  the  updates  now.  
 
 after  planting  the  hairgrass  it  looks  like  his.  sorry  for  bad  pic  as  the  water  is  all  murky.
 
 
 
 now  what  shall  i  do  to  avoid  algae.  Swapnils  is  having  some  issue  with  his  ADA  soil  for  his  nano  tank.  i  just  want  to  bypass  the  damn  algae.  shall  i  introduce  some  stem  plants  temporarily..
 
 also,  i  will  prefer  fast  growing  floating  plants(i  wish  i  hadn't  thrown  my  dear  duckweeds).  kindly  suggest.

 Hi  Muddassar,
 
 The  scape  looks  nice  however,  anubia  looks  out  of  place.
 
 Instead  of  bolbitis,  you  could  try  E.Vivipara  as  back  drop  behind  the  rocks.
 
 All  the  best  Thumb Up  
 
 Regards,
 Surya

 Split  the  grass  in  smaller  clump  and  plant  them  more  closely  if  you  can.

 To  minimize  risk  of  algae,  do  the  following.
 
 1.  Do   50%  water  changes  once  every  2  days
 2.  As  you  have  already  mentioned,  add  some  stem  or  floating  plants.
 3.  Start  with  just  4  hrs  of  light  a  day,  gradually  increase  it  by  2  hrs  every  week  till  you  hit  the  8  Hr  mark  and  stay  consistent  at  8  hrs.
 4,  After  2  weeks  introduce  algae  eaters  like  Cherry  Red  Shrimp,  Ottos  and  Black  mollies

 @  Tirtha:  i  started  of  with  small  clumps.  lost  my  patience  and  then  planted  it  like  this.
 
 @Surya  :  as  soon  as  i  kept  anubias  there  i  knew  that  it  looks  starkly  out  of  place.  but  it  is  there  as  i  just  want  to  grow  it  for  some  time(another  2  weeks).  the  garra  in  my  other  planted  aquarium  was  knocking  these  anubias  down  and  these  plants  were  rolling  around  the  aquarium.  i  will  get  a  small  Driftwood  for  the  other  tank  and  tie  these  small  plantlets.  
 
 @Seetharam:  i'll  do  a  water  change  today,  trying  to  get  some  stem  plants(  all  i  am  getting  is  cabomba  and  i  don't  want  to  put  that  condemned  plant).  also,  the  lights  will  be  on  from  7-11  in  the  night.  i  am  having  DIY  CO2  diffused  by  a  powerhead  filter  and  CO2  is  running  at  a  nice  rate(the  rate  which  i  cannot  calculate).  i  just  have  a  fighter  in  there,  i  don't  think  he'll  mind  low  ph  and  CO2.
 
 @Sunil:  Thanks  a  alot  ,  but  it  will  take  another  2  months  to  even  qualify  as  a  good  looking  aquarium.  all  i  want  here  is  to  grow  grass.   Smile  
 
 by  the  way  Tirtha,  how  long  shall  i  wait  before  giving  the  grass  their  first  saloon  style  trim.  and  how  long  will  it  take  for  the  grass  to  acclimate  and  spread.  i  know  i  am  impatient  but  can't  help   Chuckle

 If  you  need  a  nice  carpet  in  a  short  time,  then  go  for  small  clumps  and  close  planting.  Otherwise  those  fat  bunches  will  be  too  much  visible  for  a  long  period  of  time.  
 
 And  wait  to  see  the  grass  started  growing,  means  it  will  start  to  throw  runners.  That  time  you  have  to  start  the  hair  cutting.  As  I  said  you  before,  first  start  with  10%  trimming.  And  gradually  increase  the  trimming.  If  the  grasses  are  healthy  and  the  growth  is  good,  within  2  weeks  you  will  see  them  back  to  old  state  with  lots  of  new  growths.
 
 You  are  using  ADA.  So  hope  you  will  be  getting  much  faster  and  denser  growth  than  my  pervulas.   Thumb Up

 Mudda,  spread  the  pervula  all  over.  Otherwise  it  ill  take  lots  of  time  to  spread.  I  think  you  need  another  pot  of  pervula.

 Tirtha  i  lost  patience  planting  these  only.  i  got  very  very  irritated  and  at  one  time  tried  planting  them  in  5  clumps.  somehow  i  got  the  courage  to  plant  this  in  around  25  clumps.  
 
 somehow  i  think  that  how  people  plant  glosso  stem  by  stem.  i  bow  to  them.  these  hair  grass  will  take  some  time.  however,  i  think  i  will  add  another  pot  in  between  the  spaces  of  the  hair  grass.
 
 i  will  also  add  some  HM  on  Saturday  given  that  Surya  has  it  in  his  shop  by  then.  i  am  planning  to  add  them  behind  the  big  rock.
