 @  batman  
 
 its  Azoo  Diffuser  +  Bubble  checker.  i  seriously  won't  recommend  it  to  anyone.  very  costly  +  has  a  few  issues.  you  can  get  a  better  glass  diffuser  for  half  its  price.

 Thats  a  big  mass  of  staurogynes.  Let  me  know  what  other  stuff  you've  got  (I  am  planning  a  robbery  at  your  residence,  who's  with  me?....shhhh!)     Chuckle  .  
 
 Thats  very  decent  apart  from  a  couple  of  things,  I  felt  necessary,  so  am  putting  them  below,  you  can  try  them  if  you  feel  convenient.
 
 1-Hygros  need  to  be  trimmed  and  replanted  for  more  thicker  growth.
 2-Staurogynes  also  require  a  progressive  slope  trim  from  front  to  back,  that'll  make  your  tank  look  more  deeper  and  interesting.  Shorted  growth  at  front  gradually  becoming  taller  as  it  moves  back.  This  also  eliminates  the  dieing/brown  leaves  that  stand  out  prominently  at  the  first  glance.  Check  Tom's  tank  to  see  what  I  am  talking  about.  Repeated  trimming  is  needed  to  achieve  a  proper  carpet  like  that.
 3-Increase  CO2  to  3+  BPS,  have  an  indicator  to  achieve  lime  green  coloration,  that  ensures  you  have  proper  co2  levels  and  fewer  algae  problems  if  you  are  able  to  maintain  it  constantly.  
 4-Plants  look  a  little  deficient  to  me,  gradually  increase  dosing  with  CO2.
 
 As  plants  grow  out,  their  mass  increases  by  multiples  to  what  you  originally  planted  and  so  does  their  nutrient  intake  capacity.

 @  hamza  
 
 haha...  
 thanks  a  lot  for  your  tips  have  a  few  things  to  say/ask  about  them  -
 
 1.  hygrophila  is  one  of  my  favorite  plants.  like  its  super  fast  growth  rate.  i  have  to  trim  and  replant  it  every  sunday  after  i  do  the  water  change.  but  i  have  a  lot  of  problems  replanting  it.  they  don't  remain  in  the  soil  because  the  soil  is  too  loose.  and  after  2-3  days,  they  just  die.  so  every  week,  i  throw  away  like  4-5  dead  hygrophila  stems.  need  help  on  how  to  plant  them.
 
 2.  about  giving  a  slope  to  Saturogynes,  should  i  just  trim  the  upper  part  of  the  plant?  they  are  not  taller  than  1.5-2  cm.  i  fear  that  i  will  cut  them  too  much  and  end  up  killing  them.  will  try  it  surely  on  this  sunday  and  update.  actually  i  made  a  mistake  again  and  did  not  slope  the  substrate  rightly.  -__-"
 
 3.  any  more  CO2  than  what  i  have  right  now  makes  my  fish  swim  at  the  surface  all  day.  and  yes  i  am  going  to  buy  a   drop  checker  in  april  when  my  exams  end  :)
 
 4.  nutrient  deficiency.  yeah,  thats  what  i  always  felt  just  cannot  figure  out  what  deficiency  is  it.  need  some  help  here  too.  
 
 thank  you  Smile
