 Long  ago  I  got  a  tank  made  which  is  of  sector  shape  got  it  done  after  spending  a  fortune  for  bending  the  glass.  As  my  interest  for  planted  tank  grew  I  always  wanted  to  make  this  a  planted  tank,  however  I  faced  several  challenges  because  of  the  2  foot  height  of  this  tank.  The  light  was  never  good  enough  to  reach  the  bottom  and  the  plants  would  simply  wilt  away,  I  did  manage  to  grow  crypts  and  for  a  while  stayed  that  way.  
    One  fine  day  I  decided  enough  was  enough  and  wanted  to  make  a  mountainish  scape  with  HC  and  blyxa  along  with  rocks.  Decided  to  go  with  the  LED  setup  and  started  looking  around  for  options  and  luckily  found  THE  guy  "Shelly"   Cheering  ,loved  the  finish  the  acrylic  hoods  brought  in  and  the  tank  being  right  at  the  entrance  of  my  home,  never  wanted  to  compromise  on  the  slickness.Discussed  with  Shelly  on  phone  for  1hr  and  then  we  agreed  upon  the  design.  
      Let  the  pictures  do  the  talking  hence  forth......here  you  go
 
 The  tank  shaped  hood  in  the  making  at  Shelly's  place
 
 
 
 almost  ready  except  the  optics
 
 
 
 
 Hood  mounted  on  the  dry  scape
 
 
 
 Brushing  off  the  dust  on  the  Seriyu  rocks
 
 
 Layout  almost  ready
 
 
 
 Not  possible  without  help  of  Shelly  
 
 
 Thanks  techi  khan  for  your  blyxa's  they  simply  rock  !!!
 
 Cloudy  water  making  way  for  the  clear  water...
 
 
 
 The  hood  and  tank  in  all  its  glory
 
 
 
 All  setup  and  now  I  will  just  wait  for  these  to  grow....

 Very  good  attempt  for  the  layout!  hood  no  comments  -  they  are  no  doubt  super.  As  far  as  the  scape  goes  -  blyxa  will  take  over  your  scape  in  no  time,  if  possible  arrange  for  some  larger  rocks,  no  need  to  change  the  position,  they  are  perfectly  fine.  Please  don't  get  me  wrong  -  but  the  DIY  BG  dies  not  match  the  scape  that  you  have  come  up  with.  Would  have  loved  some  creativity  on  that  front  as  well.

 thanks  abhradip  for  your  comments,  the  background  was  there  long  ago  when  it  was  a  regular  fish  tank  din't  want  to  mess  up  with  it,  But  i  agree  that  it  does  not  go  with  the  simplistic  sense  of  the  scape  and  also  brings  in  a  sense  of  artificialness  to  the  nature  aquarium.  Will  slowly  get  a  plain  background.  In  the  front  i  plan  to  put  some  smaller  stones  but  other  than  that  nothing  else  as  of  now.

 Thanks  everyone  for  all  the  compliments,  feels  good.  
 
 @sam22sam:  background  is  the  thermocol  one
 
 @sergio:  Fishes  i  have  not  yet  decided,  but  definitely  some  ammano  shirmps  and  otocinclus.
 
 @sudheerj:  the  one  sticking  on  to  the  glass  is  the  CO2  test  kit
 
 @kuna:  He  he  thanks  prashant  for  helping  me  1.5  yrs  get  started  on  this  tank,  I  still  remember  how  we            struggled  to  set  the  wood  and  the  plants  in  it.  Yup  i  think  it  was  high  time  for  the  open  hood.
 
 @veeral:  Shelly  will  need  to  comment  on  the  pics  of  LED  build,  but  yup  there  are  heat  sinks  &  fans  installed
 
 @mudassir:  will  definitely  keep  you  guys  posted
