 Thinking  of  setup  a  low  maintenance  tank,  so  rescaped  my  earlier  one  and  came  up  with  this  tank
 
 Name:  Rolling  Stone
 
 Size:2*1*1ft
 
 Hardscape:  Local  stones  collected  from  stone  dealer.  Adding  some  wood,  but  not  sure  to  use  the  woods  in  the  picture,  those  are  ordinary  woods  collected  locally,  so  will  be  collecting  some  drift  wood.  
 
 Substrate:  From  my  previous  tank,  Soilrite,  Vermicompost,  Cocopeat  and  ordinary  sand.
 
 Co2:  will  not  be  using  in  this  tank.
 
 Lighting:  36  and  23watt  CFL
 
 Flora:  Rotala  rotundifolia,Crypt,  crypt  ,  anubiaus  nana,  Star  Grass
 
 Filtration:  Internal  RS  Electrical.
 
 PICs  as  follows:
 
 Criticism  are  welcome

 Looks  nicely  done.
 
 Nit:  Maybe  you  could  re-arrange  either  the  left  or  right  pile  -  currently  looks  too  "symmetric"

 Just  a  suggestion,  instead  of  rotala  use  water  sprite  since  in  a  low  tech  the  rotala  will  start  looking  a  bit  straggly  in  some  time

 Nice  stone  setup.  
 
 But  you  have  placed  the  big  rocks  too  close  to  the  back  side  on  the  glass.  Since  it  is  too  close  to  the  glass,  how  will  you  place  the  stem  plants?
 
 Overall  its  a  good  scape...I  liked  the  stones   Thumb Up     Thumb Up

 Thanks  Popatlal,  Hayath,Mortis,Shelly,Swapnil...for  your  comments.
 
 Hayath@  As  you  metion  will  try  to  look  it  again.
 Mortis@  Also  thinking  of  some  Vals...will  sure  look  for  sprite.
 Shelly:  Actually  I  have  not  put  substrate  yet  at  the  back  so  from  the  pic  it  is  showing  that  the  arrangement  is  much  nearer  to  the  glass  actually  I  have  almost  2.5  to  3inch  gap  between  them.

 I  agree  with  Hayath.  In  one  of  the  rock  pile  retain  the  larger  rocks  and  reduce  the  no.  of  smaller  ones.  Also  try  producing  a  gradient-  larger  to  smaller  towards  the  front  rather  than  mixing  them.  Vals  will  look  fabulous,  but  they  grow  too  tall,  may  be  vallisneria  retrospiralis  will  be  better.  Just  my  opinion.

 Nice  Scape.
 
 36  watt  light  will  be  sufficient  to  grow  Rotala  in  the  height  of  1  foot.

 1st  pic  scape  looks  better!
 
 Just  a  suggestion:  Try  piling  up  all  the  rocks  on  one  corner  and  make  it  like  a  mountain  base  stones  extend  till  the  other  corner,  fill  java  moss  and  anubias  in  between  the  stones  in  the  mountain  and  crypts  towards  the  base.
 
 P.S:  Java  moss  will  grow  in  low  light  but  slowly!
