 Hi  Senthil,
 
 Nice  growth  of  plants,  would  love  to  see  how  ammania  sp  bonsai,  rotala  macrandra  japan  red  &  mini  dark  red  turn  out  after  they  settle  in.
 
 Cloudy  rocks  -  hope  they  are  not  altering  the  PH,  any  challenge  that  you  had  after  setting  up  the  tank?
 
 Good  luck!!
 
 Cheers,
 Binesh

 Thanks  a  lot  Sam  and  yajur  ....I  follow  EI  dosing  regime  with  macros  and  micros  twice  a  week  followed  by  50%  water  change  on  Sunday...     think  I  have  to  increase  the  dosing  to  next  level  especially  for  the  rotalas.

 PH  is  never  an  issue  once  you  have  a  pressurized  CO2  kit.  At  an  optimum  flow  PH  stays  right  within  6-7  range.
 
 Those  rocks  most  probably  seiryu  or  ryoh(limestone  rocks)  increase  the  hardness  by  150ppm  over  your  tap  water.  Its  very  important  to  use  RO  water  along  with  these  kind  of  rocks.

 BTW,  that  ppm  figure  is  approximate,  I  used  fairly  a  lot  of  such  rocks  in  my  tank  wrt  its  size,  hence  huge  increment.  It  might  not  increase  hardness  to  that  extent  if  you  have  fewer  rocks.

 The  tank  looks  nice.  The  plants  also  looks  very  good.
 
 I  liked  the  eriocaulon  breviscaupum  foreground  plant.  Could  you  please  tag  the  plants  in  your  scape.
