 that  small  leaved  plant...
 sorry  that  i  am  posting  this  in  wrong  topic  but  i  tried  but  i  cant  find  that  topic  in  which  u  posted  plants  pics...  
 actually  i  am  about  to  make  a  nature  style  30  G  tank  with  some  redmoor  root  Woods...
 thats  why  i  am  askin  about  that  plant....

 hi  tirtha,
 
 
       good  work  Thumb Up  ,though  iam  not  expert  ,  i  want  to  share  my  opinions
 
 1.  left  side  substrate  can  be  aligned  to  straight  line  by  creating  a  forward  slope  towards  the  front  glass.
 2.  I  feel  wood  is  looking  small  with  respect  of  your  tank  size.
 
 Thats  all  these  are  my  opinions.
                 

 
 Thanks  for  the  input  Sudgakar.  I  kept  the  slop  knowingly  at  the  front.  Wanted  to  show  the  left  size  higher  than  the  right.
 
 And  let  the  tank  and  scape  mature.  Then  we  will  see  how  the  wood  will  look  like.

 great  work  tirtha  da...i  am  sure  this  tank  will  turn  up  very  nicely....keep  us  updated...one  thing  i  would  like  to  say  about  the  righthand  side  of  the  wood...u  can  try  some  more  stems  there...the  entire  region  with  hairgrass  is  looking  a  bit  odd..a  slow  transition  of  height  from  the  left  side  to  the  right  will  look  better  i  guess..may  be  rotala  wallichii  will  be  not  a  bad  idea..more  over  it  will  add  colour  to  the  scape..just  my  two  cents.  Smile
                 

 
 Just  let  the  grass  and  the  stems  grow  in.  I  am  trying  to  do  exactly  the  same  as  you  said.  When  the  plants  will  get  some  good  trim,  hope,  will  be  able  to  give  it  a  shape.
 
 
                                                 
Mridul  wrote  (View  Post):                

 Dada  Can  you  please  give  some  info  where  to  find  the  type  of   plants  you  referred  above,  in  Kolkata?  Bye  the  way  the  grass  looks  good.will  these  grasses  grow  all  over  the  ground  and  form  a  carpet  in  future?
                 

 
 Mridul,  get  in  touch  with  the  person  above  (bluewhale).  He  is  the  best  person  to  guide  you  on  planted  tank  in  Kolkata.
 
 
                                                 
Bhushan  wrote  (View  Post):                

 The  tank  is  off  to  a  good  start.  Hope  you  get  more  lights  over  it  ASAP.  You  should  also  start  dosing  K  and  micros.  
 
 Cheers
 Bhushan
                 

 
 Thanks  a  lot  Bhusan  for  the  inputs.  I  added  another  55  watt  PLL  yesterday.  Hope  to  get  the  light  by  next  week.  Already  started  dosing  Micro  and  Fe.  Will  start  dosing  K  from  today.
 
 This  is  how  the  tank  looks  like,   after  adding  another  PLL.

 Finally  got  the  light  fixture  delivered  and  started  6  Hrs  photo  period  from  yesterday.
 
 
 
 A  closer  one.
 
 
 
 Updates:
 
 1.  Tank  started  running  with  4x36  watt  PLL.  3  6500K  and  1  4000K.
 2.  Stems  and  Moss  settled  down  nicely  and  started  showing  good  sign  of  growth.
 3.  Acicularis  are  bit  stunned  but  will  start  to  grow  soon.
 4.  Due  to  less  light  for  fast  15  days,  HC  started  growing  vertical  instead  crawling.   Thumb Down  
 5.  Parvula  got  the  worst  hit  by  low  light.  75%  melted  out.  Need  to  replace  them  soon.   Thumb Down

 Hi  Tirtha,
 
 The  scape  is  looking  good.  What  kind  of  dosing  you  are  using  (Micro,  Fe  and  K)?  dry  dosing  or  some  other  stuff?

 Lets  have  some  negetive  updates.  
 
 Tank  temp  went  above  26  degree  and  HC  started  melting.  Will  wait  for  another  1-2  week.  If  it  not  survives,  will  replace  them  with  Parvula.  I  assumed  this  before  I  start  but  didn't  expect  so  early.   Sad  
 
 So  Called,  National  Capital  Region  is  running  with  maximum  3-4  hrs  electricity  at  day  time.  So  don't  know,  how  much  growth  I  can  expect  from  the  plants.   Wall Bang

 my  tank's  temp  went  above  27  for  a  few  days  and  yes  HC  showed  some  signs  of  yellowing  but  they  did  not  melt.  i  am  keeping  it  around  24-25  and  all  looks  good.  they  are  doing  fine  with  that  temp.  even  with  26  they  were  fine.
 
 besides  what  temperature  are  you  maintaining  for  the  nano  HC  tank.  i  guess  the  growth  in  that  one  was  very  very  nice.
 
 also,  what  temperature  did  ABHI  maintain  his  HC  tank  ?  he  also  had  a  nice  growth.  wonder  what  happened  to  his  tank  now.

 Hey  Mudda,  thanks  for  the  information.  Actually  situation  is  different  in  a  new  tank  and  a  matured  tank.  Till  now  my  HC  is  trying  to  get  rid  of  the  immersed  growth  and  yet  to  acclimatize.  Top  of  that  my  substrate  are  leaching  ammonia.  So  they  are  more  sensitive  to  Temp  change.  But  will  install  Fan  set  ASAP.  Let's  see  how  it  respond  back.
 
 I  shut  off  the  Nano.  Didn't  want  to  run  multiple  tanks  during  summer.
