 I  am  not  an  expert,  but  from  the  pictures  I  don't  see  any  problem  at  all.  Usually  it  takes  couple  of  weeks  to  a  month  for  plants  to  get  established  their  roots  before  they  start  growing.  Again  it  all  depends  on  the  plant  species.
 
 Cut  the  damaged  anubias  leaves  the  ones  having  holes,  it  will  eventually  grow  again.

 As  plants  require  light  and  Carbon  source  to  grow,  If  you  supply  good  amount  of  light  then  do  provide  some  carbon  source,  how  about  DIY  Co2  with  yeast  generator  or  adding  some  Seachem  excel?  
 Looking  at  the  pics  I  think  carbon  source  is  only  thing  your  plants  missing.

 Hi  Sandeep,
 Your  tank  is  doing  just  fine.  Keep  Calm  &  be  patient.  
 
 Vallisneria,  lily  &  crypts  will  initially  melt  &  then  grow  back.
 Swords  are  usually  grown  emersed  (above  water)  in  nurseries,  so  they  will  lose  their  leaves  to  grow  leaves  that  will  suit  submerged  conditions.
 dwarf  grass  will  take  time  to  catch  up.  Once  it  does,  it  will  grow  like  a  weed.
 
 As  for  the  Anubias,  it  is  a  very  slow  growing  plant,  so  it  will  take  time  to  show  new  growth.
 
 For  now,  keep  up  with  daily  50%  water  change  for  2  weeks.  Then  slowly  reduce  it  to  once  in  two  days,then  twice  a  week.  Over  a  period  of  five  to  six  weeks.
 
 However,  I  think  you  must  plant  more  densely.  Otherwise,  you're  asking  for  trouble  in  terms  of  algae  in  the  long  run.
 
 Good  Luck!   Thumb Up

 Excel  is  just  ok!  Over  the  period  of  time,  you  will  be  tempted  to  overdose  and  will  feel  even  overdose  is  not  sufficient.  Try  DIY  CO2  or  if  you  can  pressurized  CO2.
 
 Initially  plants  do  melt  because  of  excel,  but  slowly  they  will  get  adapt  to  excel.  Yes  Vals  don't  like  excel,  they  will  show  signs  of  melting  at  time  they  will  melt  die  completely.

 Valisneria  can  grow  real  quick  and  shadow  the  foreground  plants  ,  your  tank  is  looking  really  great.

 Hi  Sandeep,
 
 Tank  looks  good.  Try  to  use  anubias  in  a  shaded  area  and  I  think  10k  light  is  too  much  for  this  tank.  You  will  have  alage  faster.Try  to  reduce  the  lighting.

 Sandeep,
 One  thing  is  the  Aquaclay  substrate  you  have  don't  support  HC  cuba  or  similar  carpeting  plants,  go  for  grassy  kind  of  carpet  plants.

 Hi  Srinidhi,
 
 Thanks..  Yupp..  this  is  the  reason  I  have  not  removed  mineral  wool  from  HC  Cuba  and  have  fixed  the  mineral  wool  along  with  itself.
 
 I  think  this   will  help?
 
 What  is  your  take  on  above  method?
 
 Thanks
 Sandeep

 Coming  out  nice.  Patience  pays  in  this  hobby  always  :-)   ..  that  was  my  all  time  learning  here..
 Is  it  okay  and  safe  to  keep  the  wool  in  the  tank,  for  fishes  ?

 Sandeep,
 My  take  is..  if  at  all  HC  cuba  does  manage  to  grow  and  start  to  carpet  the  substrate,  one  day  eventually  the  whole  carpet  will  be  floating  somewhere  in  the  mid  way  of  the  tank..
 The  substrate  is  very  porous  and  hence  very  light,  It  cant  hold  down  plants  on  its  own..hence  you  need  plants  which  will  root  very  deep..
