 Ramesh  good  start  with  AS  II.  Just  like  to  point  out,
 
 -  Lights  are  too  low  for  a  67G  tank.  You  need  to  provide  atleast  3WPG  for  the  plants  to  grow  in  this  tank.  Go  with  4x54watt  T5  HO.
 
 -2215  for  this  tank  means  no  filtration.  You  will  be  needing  another  2217  minimum  along  with  this.  Make  sure  you  have  proper  water  circulation  all  over  the  tank.  
 
 Wish  you  all  the  best.

 Thanks  Tirtha  for  your  inputs.  Will  study  your  points  and  I  will  try  to  add  another  filter  to  it.

 Either  remove  those  white  rocks  or  cover  them  with  moss.  Taking  too  much  of  attention  and  taking  away  the  focus.

 I  agree  with  Tirtha  and  Kshitij--the  rocks  have  to  be  covered  with  moss.  Also  try  placing  them  next  to  each  other  and  preferrrably  in  erect  positions.  It  might  look  better.
