Doesn't  50%  of  light  itself  is  a  bright  lightitng  for  a  tank  of  just  1.5'  height??                

 
 In  my  expr  with  ponds,  under  filtered  light  the  plants  grow  but  dont  look  as  healthy  as  i  want  them  to  look.  My  suggestion  is  that  you  experiement  with  your  plants    -  try  the  hardier  ones  like  foxtail/hydrilla  first.
 
 50%  sunlight  in  the  afternoon  may  be  ok  but  not  sure  if  thats  enough  for  the  other  times.

If  it  is  under  direct  sun,  how  could  we  combat  algae??                  

 
 though  Madras  is  hotter,  under  direct  sun,  with  so  little  depth  I  wasnt  able  to  keep  fish  in  my  bathtub  converted  into  a  pond.  The  sunlight,  and  the  heat  from  the  ground  made  the  water  really  hot.  The  water  surface  is  covered  wilth  lilly  leaves,  that  didnt  help.  
 
 Such  tanks  do  best  under  filtered  light  is  my  opinion.

 Update
 Plants  doing  nice,  molly  fry  growing  very  fast.  Had  a  lot  of  green  water  due  to  my  overuse  of  pmdd.
 However  Sujoy's  mehtod  of  overflow  of  tank  has  worked,  recent  rains  have  further  improved  the  tank.
 Water  is  very  clear  now,  bottom  can  be  seen.
 Lily  bulb  hs  not  yet  sprouted  Sad

 They  don't....  they  just  form  a  beautiful  carpet  over  the  water  surface.....  but  they  are  difficult  to  remove,  when  you  don't  need  them....    Smile

 For  a  rectangular  pond,  plant  the  lilly  in  the  middle.  Water  spiders  may  be  ok  but  are  you  sure  its  not  the  larva  of  a  dragon  fly?  they  eat  fish

 Sandeep,  
 
 The  tank  looks  good.  If  you  could  trim  the  plants  so  that  they  don't  come  up  to  the  surface,  the  tank  will  have  a  good  look.....  my  humble  opinion  Smile
 
 A  clear  view  of  all  the  flora  and  fauna  could  be  seen....   Very Happy

 Duck  weed  have  been  taken  out.  Smile  
 The  picture  is  nearly  20  days  old.  Now  the  lotus  leaves  are  really  large.
 BTW  I  can  see  a  lot  of  dragon  fly  near  the  tank,  so  far  I  have  not  suffered  any  losses,  do  I  need  to  take  any  precautions.  Shocked

 I  have  not  trimmed  the  plants  on  purpose,  right  now  I  want  them  to  grow  like  hell  so  that  algae  is  removed.
 In  the  initial  stages  I  had  lots  of  green  water,now  its  place  has  been  taken  by  thread  algae.
 It  is  s  lot  of  hair  algae,  it  somthers  the  leves  of  palnts  and  throw  out  a  mugfull  of  algae  every  week.
 Any  easy  way  to  control  it  or  will  the  nature  take  its  own  course.
