 Nice  rocks.  If  you  take  good  care  of  it,  it  can  turn  into  a  nice  scape.  Just  2  questions.
 
 Why  no  filter?
 Why  have  you  not  started  the  Co2?

 Rupak,  decrease  the  height  of  rocks.  In  Iwagumi  setup,  rocks  are  main  attraction.

 Nice  arrangement.
 
 One  thing  though,  the  rock  to  the  left  extreme  used  to  support  the  main  rock,  is  too  close  to  the  glass.
 The  "hole  "  between  the  two  is  distracting.  Can  you  cover  that  up  ?  with  gravel  or  another  rock  ?

 Rupak  -  yes  as  scorpio  said  the  height  of  rocks  is  little  distructive.

 You  need  to  have  a  filter  or  powerhead  for  the  flow  atleast  if  not  anything  else  otherwise  there  will  not  be  even  distribution  of  fetrs  and  CO2.  Your  tank  will  develop  algae  in  no  time.

 When  the  plants  fill  up  it'll  look  good.

 Thankyou  all  of  you  for  your  encouragement  and  inputs   Smile  
 
 @Dev  for  filteration  i  am  looking  out  for  someting  small  power  filter  which  should  not  create  too  much  turbulence  in  the  tank
 
 as  for  the  CO2  currently  there  is  a  very  severe  shortage  in  Ahmedabad  and  the  refiller  has  asked  me  to  wait  atleast  another  5  more  days
 
 @  Madan,  than  for  you  kind  words,  intend  to  fill  the  gap  on  the  left  by  placing  a  small  rock  from  behind   Very Happy  
 
 as  far  as  the  height  of  the  Oyaishi  rock  is  concerned  the  tank  was  not  filled  completely  when  i  took  the  picture  and  hence  it  looks  as  if  it  is  very  close  to  the  water  surface  will  clean  up  the  tank  a  bit  refill  and  post  fresh  pictures  soon   Smile  
 
 @Maulik  you  are  most  welcome   Smile

 The  positioning  of  the  rocks  are  much  better  now.  You  might  have  to  replace  the  rocks  in  the  front  with  slightly  larger  ones  or  they  will  get  overshadowed  by  the  Glosso  in  a  short  while.

 Looks  great  Rupak,  like  a  mountain  range   Smile  
 
 Just  a  suggestion:  If  you  replace  the  the  plants  in  the  background  with  fine-leaved  stems,  the  tank  would  look  bigger.
