 Thanks  for  the  encouragement  guys.  This  is  how  the  tank  looks  after  2  weeks.  My  apologies  for  the  grainy  pic,  too  lazy  to  turn  off  the  CO2.  
 I  have  been  facing  some  difficulties.  To  my  greatest  surprise,  the  anubias  did  not  acclimate  well  at  all.  I  don't  know  if  it's  the  feviquik  glue  that  I  used  to  secure  them  to  the  driftwood,  or  the  way  it  cut  off  their  roots.  I  have  done  both  previously  without  any  significant  losses.  But  this  time  fifty  percent  of  the  plants  have  yellowing  leaves  with  holes,  and  rotting  rhizomes.
 Once  I  sort  out  this  issue,  I'l;l  try  to  get  some  anubias  petite  to  replace  the  bigger  anubias.  
 The  ground  cover  at  the  front  has  also  taken  some  beating.  
 I  started  dosing  this  week  with  a  macro  mixture  (N-K)  from  "aquatic  remedies"  and  a  micro  mixture  from  "aqua  bloom".  I'm  going  at  half  the  recommended  dose.  
 Any  advice  would  be  gladly  welcomed.

 if  im  not  wrong  all  plants  will  go  through  a  down  phase  when  newly  planted  then  flourish  if  things  are  optimised.   with  CO2,  good  substrate  and  adequate  light  just  give  it  a  few  more  weeks  to  really  show  its  true  colours

 Hi  Arin,
      Pretty  good  start  on  your  planted  tank.  Sometimes  Anubias  take  a  long  time  to  get  accimilated  to  the  new  tank,  shedding  most  of  their  leaves.  I  had  a  Gaint  Leaf  Anubias  which  shed  all  it's  leaves,  except  2,  and  the  rhizome  mostly  rotted.  But  I  did  not  throw  it  away.............  And  after  2  long  months,  it  started  to  thrown  small  ,  tiny  leaves.......  Waiting  for  them  to  become  Gaint  Anubias  leaves  in  the  near  future  :-)
 
    And  I'm  glab  that  I  was  able  to  help  you  with  the  plants.
 
    A  piece  of  advise,  try  moving  the  Anubias  on  the  right  top  of  the  driftwood  away  from  direct  light.  Else  you  will  soon  have  algae  isssues  on  the  leaves.

 that  is  right.   i  have  learned  from  an  expert  (thanks  Raj)  that  slow  growing  plants  like  anubias  as   wonderful  as  they  are  predispose  to  algae  since  they  do  not  take  up  nutrients  (they  are  slow  growing)  and  so  lots  of  nutrients  are  available  for  algae  to  flourish.   especially  BBA  (black  brush  algae)   you  should  put  some  rapid  growing  plants  and  many  of  them  so  the  excess  nutrients  are  cleared  up  rapidly.   this  prevents  algae  growth.i  think  crypts  and  valis  are  fast  growing  (experts  correct  me  if  im  wrong)  and  look  nice  too.   they  would  also  balance  the  large  drift  wood  and  the  cobamba  as  background  plants.

 HI  guys,
 Sorry  about  the  gap  in  the  middle...:-)
 Anyways,  the  tank  is  cruising  nicely  at  this  point  (knock  on  wood)...
 The  anubias  had  to  be  replaced...a  word  of  caution  -  
 DO  NOT  use  FEVI  KWIK  one  drop  instant  adhesive  for  attaching  plants  to  stones  or  driftwood...
 Here's  as  it  stands  today  -  
 
 Am  debating  on  what  to  do  with  the  giant  swords  in  the  foreground  and  the  oddly  large  patch  of  moss...
