 A  planted  tank  gift  for  my  sister's  new  flat...
 
 Tank  Specs
 
 Tank  Size:  36"  L  x  20"  W  x  20"  H
 Light:  55W  *  4  Nos  (5hrs  running  in  timer)
 CO2:  Pressurized  setup.  2KG  connected  through  Solenoid

 Its  been  two  week  since  the  tank  is  setup.  No  fauna  introduced  still.  Will  be  introducing  RCS  this  weekend.

 Firstly,  why  dont  you  embed  pictures  onto  your  posts  using  [img]  tags?
 
 The  process  is..  open  an  image  in  picasa>right  click  anywhere  on  image>select  copy  image  location  from  drop  down  menu>come  back  to  your  post>pase  it  within  [img]  [/img]  tags.
 
 Simple!  I  hope  it  helps.
 
 Coming  to  the  setup,  what  a  wonderful  gift  that  is!  I  wish  someone  present  me  such  gifts.
 
 On  the  scaping  part,  I  feel  a  few  things  necessary,  if  you  like  to  give  it  a  thought...
 
 1)I  feel  that  the  beautiful  wood  should  have  been  exposed  naturally  at  places.  I  could  hardly  make  out  that  such  nice  pieces  of  wood  exist  there.
 
 2)The  round  cobbles/pebbles  are  spoiling  the  scape  with  harsh  contrast  and  I  see  no  purpose  having  them.
 
 3)You  should  increase  light  duration  now(its  past  two  weeks  now)  as  plants  are  showing  light  deficiency  symptoms.
 
 4)How  much  CO2  are  you  pumping  in?  Increase  it  to  3-4bps  or  have  an  indicator  for  it  to  ensure  you  get  right  levels  of  it.
 
 5)The  anubias  is  at  a  very  wrong  place  for  two  reasons,  first  its  a  shade  loving  plant  kept  under  high  light  at  a  top  spot  and  second  its  taking  the  light  from  the  light  loving  plants  below  it(shading  them).
 
 You  can  reposition  it  right  under  the  wood(I  mean  in  front  of  it  at  the  base)  where  its  apparantly  empty,  then  the  wood  and  the  background  stem  plants  will  get  some  good  exposure  to  the  viewer.
 The  anubias  will  be  happy  as  well  with  much  less  GSA.
 
 6)  Try  giving  glosso  a  trim  to  encourage  lateral  shoots.
 
 Did  you  start  dosing  yet?

 Nice  setup  shelly,  and  a  great  gift.  
 I  agree  with  Hamza  the  rocks  have  to  go  you  could  add  rocks  which  have  textue  and  are  a  bit  darker  in  colour  and  the  anubius  is  too  high  on  the  setup  its  sure  to  get  algae  on  the  leaves,  i  guess  you  can  already  see  signs  of  it..just  these  minor  changes  and  in  a  months  time  its  sure  going  to  look  great..  all  the  best

 Shelly,
 Its  because  of  the  potential  of  this  tank,  I  am  commenting  a  few  things:
 On,  my  personal  bias  first,  I  am  a  great  fan  of  branchy  driftwoods  and  therefore  want  such  drftwoods  to  have  a  prominent  space.  Therefore,  I  completely  agree  with  Hamza,  the  driftwoods  are  awesome  but  are  now  lost  in  the  scape.  If  only  you  had  kept  them  ---separated  as  is  the  layout  in  the  baretank  it  would  have  looked  stunning!  
 Two,  Anubias  leaves----the  Anubias  leaves,  the  way  you  have  placed  will  have  two  problems.  One,  being  so  close  to  the  light  it  will  soon  attract  all  kinds  of  algae.  Two,  the  leaves  are  too  bg  for  the  scape.  Given  the  driftwood  and  its  narrow  branches....it  would  be  good  to  have  narrow  leaved  plants.  You  can  try  some  Fern  (Windelov,  Bolibitis)  and  "hide"  the  Anubias  to  some  lower  bottom  sorner  to  fill  up  a  dark  spot  maybe.
 
 This  tank  should  be  a  stunner  ...not  that  it  doesnt  look  stunning,  but  if  only  the  driftwoods  have  some  empty  space  around  them  Smile   Smile   Smile  
 
 Cheers
 Bappa

 Oh  just  two  things,  time  may  not  be  ripe  yet  to  introduce  RCS....give  the  tank  4  weeks  before  you  introduce  livestocks......and  in  case  you  want  to  separate  the  driftwoods,  your  placements  of  the  two  woods  are  fine  (pics  1-4)....except  that  you  can  think  of  rotating  the  one  on  the  left  anticlockwise  90  degrees  so  that  the  extended  branch  points  towards  the  other  wood.....
