 Sorry  for  disappearing  completely,  was  dealing  with  some  issues.  The  tank  has  been  getting  regular  water  changes  and  other  maintenances,  but  there  have  been  no  additions.  I  dosed  a  few  more  of  my  DIY  root  tabs  last  month  and  the  vals  have  been  responding  pretty  well  to  it.  Amazons  are  not  gaining  height  but  have  started  throwing  runners  and  new  leaves,  albeit  slowly.  The  one  internal  1200lph  filter  was  seemingly  not  enough  for  the  tank  and  the  water  was  always  a  bit  cloudy.  Added  another  1000lph  filter  yesterday  and  replaced  the  foam  with  filter  floss  to  clear  out  finer  suspended  particles.  Tough  times  meant  I  couldn't  add  any  more  plants  for  some  time  but  gonna  order  a  few  soon  hopefully.  
 
 I  still  haven't  added  any  fish,  but  November  will  see  some  life  hopefully.  Im  really  hoping  to  get  a  school  of  glass  catfish  along  with  rainbows  and  tetras.  
 
 I  was  worried  about  not  being  able  to  fill  the  tank  with  plants  however  vals  have  almost  formed  a  meadow  in  the  middle  of  the  tank  and  Im  loving  it!
 
 A  few  anubias  and  ferns  on  the  wood  and  a  few  crypts  here  and  there  is  all  that  the  tank  needs  now,  and  maybe  a  few  giant  valls.
 
 Picture  for  reference:  
 
 
 EDIT:  Finally  able  to  place  an  order  for  my  plants!   Cheering  
 Here  is  the  final  list:

     
  • Cryptocoryne  pontederiifolia
     
  • Echinodorus  argentinensis  -  medium
     
  • Echinodorus  parviflorus  
     
  • Sagittaria  subulata
     
  • Echinodorus  grisebachii
     
  • Hygrophilla  corymbosa  “  Compacta”
     
  • Limnobium  laevigatum
     
  • Cryptocoryne  wendtii
     
  • Cryptocoryne  spiralis  -  Red
     
  • Microsorum  pteropus  "Wrinkled  Leaf"  on  SS  pad
     
  • Anubias  barteri  'Coin  Leaf'  -Pot

 New  update.
 
 Plants  arrived  on  17th  October  and  I've  planted  them  the  same  way.  Wanted  to  have  a  jungle  appearance  and  the  valisneria  meadow  in  the  centre  really  added  to  that.  While  planting  I  had  to  pull  out  almost  20  valisneria  individuals  to  make  space  for  new  plants.  
 
 4  individual  Java  ferns  emerged  from  the  SS  pad,  while  3  individual  anubias  plants  were  extracted  from  the  single  large  anubias  pot.  The  seller  added  10x  sagittaria  extra  as  a  gift  and  I  am  over-all  extremely  happy  with  the  purchase  from  the  seller,  Sreepadma.com  
 
 While  planting  I  went  overzealous  and  added  about  20x  diy  root  tabs.  The  valisneria  as  usual  have  embraced  it  greatly  and  they  seem  to  gaining  height  now.  
 
 There  are  new  leaves  in  the  crypts  and  a  few  echinodorus  individuals.  Sagittaria  and  e.  grisebachii  aren't  looking  good.  Fingers  crossed.
 
 Hygrophila  corymbosa  is  probably  my  new  favourite  plant  lol.  Its  throwing  new  leaves  and  already  has  a  few  centimetres  of  roots  emanating  from  the  sides.  I  even  mistakenly  planted  one  plant  under  the  shade  of  the  wood,  but  it  still  grew  from  underneath  the  shade  towards  the  light.
 
 There  is  an  expected  outbreak  of  green  water  algae,  what  was  I  thinking  blasting  the  tank  with  so  much  nutrients  lol.  Anyway,  there's  nothing  I  can  do  except  for  wait.  Hoping  the  fast  growing  plants  like  corymbosa  and  vallisneria  as  well  as  floating  plants  will  outcompete  the  algae  soon.
 
 Ive  restricted  my  lighting  to  8hrs  a  day  as  well,  vs  10  hrs  previously.
