 Hey  Buddy
 
 Got  it  now,  the  Cuba  will  cover  those  rocks  easily  and  they  will  be  barely  visible  after  the  Cuba  Carpet  is  established.
 
 Mid  ground  ...........  Well  Blyxa  is  the  first  thing  that  comes  to  mind  .......  But  as  Vince  suggested  Eriocaulons  would   be  a  good  choice.

 I  am  planning  to  keep  all  the  small  size  leaf  plants  in  this  scape.  Blyxa  will  be  contrast  to  that.  But  all  other  species  mentioned  by  you  all  are  super  choices.  So  will  start  looking  for  them.
 
 Till  now,  we  got  the  choices  for  Mid  Ground  plants  like  the  below  list,
 
 Staurogynes
 Tenellus
 H.verticilata
 Dowoni(UG)
 E.triandra
 Anubias  gold
 Windelove  fern
 L.braziliensis  
 Native  Eriocaulons

 Thanks  Mridul.  I  have  used  almost  4  x  9ltr  Bag  of  ADA  AS  II  in  this  scape.  And  while  creating  the  scape,  always  keep  more  height  at  the  back  and  make  a  slope  to  front.  It  will  increase  the  depth  of  the  scape.

 Updated  the  Rock  scape  little  bit.  All  holding  rocks  will  be  invisible  when  the  HC  will  grow  in.  Only  one  rock  at  fore  ground  will  be  visible.
 
 
 
 A  closer  look,
 
 
 
 Initial  Plantation  plan,
 
 
 
 Will  keep  changing  Plants  here  and  there  as  the  scape  will  start  to  mature.

 Check  your  Plant  Position  with  the  Light  Requirements  and  position  your  lights  accordingly....may  be  you  can  take  a  re-look  at  the  Rock  Arrangements...they  probably  should  be  a  little  more  visible...

 Sorry  Tirtha,  I  am  also  not  agree  with  plant  selection:
 *  R.  rotundifolia  and  R.  nanjenshan  will  cover  the  main  attraction  of  tank  within  a  few  days(Wood).
 *  Increase  the  height  of  stones  otherwise  they  will  disappear  under  the  bed  of  HC.
 *  Glosso  or  Elatine  triandra  will  be  best  for  your  confusing  part.
 *  HM,  umbrosem  or  any  other  plant  of  small  leaves  in  the  back  half  of  E.  parvula  place  will  add  good  contrast  in  the  aquarium.

 Actually,  after  a  very  long  time,  I  got  a  chance  to  start  a  tank.  So  too  much  involvements  than  usual.   Very Happy  
 
 Hope  the  rocks  will  be  covered  with  HC.  Otherwise  will  glue  some  moss  top  of  them.  :P

 Dada,  thanks  for  the  inputs  and  the  link.  But  in  this  scape,  I  don't  want  a  single  over  powering  rock.  Here  the  center  of  interest  gonna  be  the  wood.   :)

 Agree  with  you  in  the  first  point.  But  still,  as  of  now,  I  want  to  use  the  rotalas.  They  scape  you  are  talking  about  should  have  only  Vivipara  at  the  bak  to  make  the  wood  prominent.  But  as  of  now,  no  plan  for  Vivipara.  Let  the  tank  mature  first.
 
 For  the  rocks,  exactly  thats  the  thing  I  wanted  to  do.  I  don't  want  the  rocks  to  be  visible.Hardly  1-2  visible  rock  to  balance  the  scape.
 
 For  confusing  area,  I  have  an  ultimate  goal  for  UG.  As  of  now,  will  stick  to  glosso.  BTW,  how  the  triandras  are  doing  in  your  tank?  Keep  them  happy.  :)
 
 I  have  a  plan  to  use  HM  right  behind  the  left  hand  rock,  beside  blyxa.

 Out  of  5-6  triandras,  some  have  good  growth.  I  will  give  u  all  of  them  in  next  meet  and  will  take  back  in  future.
 But  I  am  confusing,  and  can't  difference  between  triandra  and  rotala.
