 Show  us  some  of  the  recent  pics  of  the  tank  dude,  so  that  we  can  tell  you  what  all  went  wrong  there.
 
 The  rocks  that  you  have  used  needs  to  be  discarded  immediately  as  they  are  doing  more  damage  than  doing  good  to  the  theme.  You  need  the  temp  to  be  within  26  degrees  to  have  a  good  HC  growth.  Further,  HC  is  not  a  beginners  plant.  So  would  suggest  Eleocharis  parvula  as  your  fore  ground  option  as  a  beginner.  If  you  manage  to  grow  it,  then  you  should  try  the  more  advanced  plants.
 
 A  1  kg  cylinder  is  a  waste  of  money,  buy  a  much  much  bigger  cylinder.  Who  ever  made  you  decide  on  that  was  just  pushing  his  product,  Take  advice  from  experts  before  you  jump  start  any  more  planted  projects  IMHO.  Do  not  listen  to  self  proclaimed  experts  as  they  are  coming  a  dime  a  dozen  now  a  days  if  you  really  want  a  good  looking  and  long  lasting  planted  tank.
 
 Hope  this  helps.

 My  First  Step  in  Planted  World  (Updated  today)  .........
 
 Hi  Friends,  
 
 I  am  started  my  first  planted  tank.  Just  one  and  half  month  ago.  But  due  to  light  &  algae  more  or  less  my  tank  totally  destroyed.  So  again  I  start  on  1st  of  this  month  with  new  scaping,  changing  rocks  &  light.
 
 
 Specification:

 Substrate                    :  Aqua  soil  II  (ADA)  
 Hardscape                  :  Rocks  
 CO2                              :  Compressed  (1  bubble  per  sec.)  with  Diffuser  
                                          &  Bubble  Counter  
 Dosing                          :  1  ML  Do-Aqua  in  night  after  switch  off  light.
 Fauna                           :  
 Flora                              :  Foreground     :  Hemianthus  callitrichoides  cuba  
                                             Middle               :  Blyxa  Japonica,  
                                             Background     :  Hemianthus  Macranthemoides.

 Comments  from  a  fellow  IAH  and  not  a  planted  expert  Chuckle   ROFL  
 
 The  tank  looks  neat.  Only  little  suggestion  is  that  mve  the  Blyxas  as  a  bunch  next  to  the  rock  that  is  covering  the  HM.  It  would  look  nice  with  a  dense  bush  at  one  corner  and  HC  carpet  all  over.
 
 Why  do  you  need  the  liquid  filter?  HOB  should  be  sufficient.  Remove  the  liquid  filter  for  (1)  looks  and  (2)  a  more  practical  reason.  Remeber,  a  running  motor  inside  the  tank  does  increase  tank  temperature.  You  need  to  bring  the  tank  temp  down  to  25/26  for  HC  to  survive  and  grow.  So  you  can  remove  the  liquid  filter.

 Hi  Bappa,
 
 Thx  for  your  suggestion  about  Blyxas..Just  waiting  for  grown  up  little  bit.
 
 But  about  liquid  filer  what  I  know  (or  suggested  by  experts)  that  in  tank  need  some  flow  which  help  to  dilute  CO2  
 with  water  very  nicely.  But  HOB  can't  do  this.  It  is  only  for  filtration.
 
 Need  clarification  from  the  Plant  Gurus..............

 Is  the  right  side  of  the  tank  jutting  outside  the  table  support?  If  so,  it  could  crack  the  glass.  Depends  of  course  on  glass  thickness  and  all  that;  its  a  considerable  risk,  I  would  think.

 I  would  suggest  moving  some  of  the  stems  into  the  gap  at  the  back  between  the  two  bunches  of  stem.  Also,  Trim  your  stems  so  that  they  get  bushy.  You  can  use  the  trimmings  to  fill  in  the  gaps.

 Nice  carpet  formation!  
 Overall  tank  is  maturing  very  well.
 
 I  would  have  added  more  stems(rotalas/HMs)  on  right  background  and  a  little  over  let  to  balance  it  out.  Or  maybe  some  e.vivipara(tall  hairgrass)  or  no  plants  except  HC  and  blyxa.
