 Karthick,  
 No  sign  of  snails  right  now,  so  no  need  to  think  about  it  right  now..
 As  for  the  algae  is  concerned..
 The  plant  density  is  large..  so  right  now  the  plants  are  holding  the  ground  by  feasting  on  the  nutrients  leached  by  aqausoil..
 With  24x7  co2  dosing,  I  am  avoiding  co2  variations  in  the  tank..
 I  have  2  pumps  giving  good  flow  in  the  tank,  which  avoids  dead  spots  in  the  tank..
 Next  step  is  to  introduce  the  cleaning  crews  like  otto's  and  shrimps..  May  be  next  week,  I  will  do  that.

 No  hard  feeling  or  mean  to  supress  anyone's  suggestions  here,  
 
 but....  see...  if  there  is  a  "dune"  in  the  center,  then  the  scape  will  become  circular  (plateau)  and  the  rest  of  the  space  will  go  waste,  another  situation  will  be,  that  plants  will  grow  angular  on  the  steep  part,  next  would  be  light  in  the  center  will  fall  intense,  so  the  center  will  put  the  rest  of  the  area  in  shade/shadow  
 
 "Circular"  How?
 
 What  I  mean  is...  as  much  you  try  to  gather  soil  in  the  center,  water  circulation  by  pump  will  always  impact  circularly  upon  the  surface  and  ultimately  make  the  soil  circular  dune  if  its  loose.

 Hey  guys..  
 I  got  this  Dymax  REX-2  lighting  fixture  from  Planter  (Ricky  Madappa)  which  has  2  x  21w  T5  bulbs.  But  these  lights  are  not  sufficient  for  the  plants,  so  will  be  converting  the  unit  shortly  in  to  a  2  x  36w  PLL  bulbs  which  will  suffice  for  my  ferns  set  up..  Very Happy.
 But  I  like  the  spread  of  the  light  in  my  tank..
 Next  is  added  a  few  Black  phantoms  and  a  few  Ghost  shrimps,  couldn't  take  pictures  of  them  as  I  was  travelling  the  whole  weekend.
 A  few  rhizomes  of  Dwarf  java  ferns  also  came  along  with  the  lighting  unit  as  freebie  which  are  still  floating  around..  will  find  a  place  for  them  soon..  Smile
