 Sudhir...  As  far  as  I  know  mollies  require  slight  brackish  setup  bro  and  that  won't  suit  your  plants...  Think  you  should  focus  on  characins.  And  what  type  of  substrate  are  you  using?  My  dwarf  sagittaria  grows  like  a  weed  in  my  ada  amazonia  but  the  ada  stuff  is  horrible  for  nitrates  and  maintenance.  Grinds  into  dust.  But  awesome  for  plants.  Been  3  yrs  stopped  dosing  long  time  back  and  no  root  tabs   Very Happy

 @blesson,  thanks  for  your  post.  
 
 Mollies  are  all  long  gone.  The  only  baby  surviving  is  growing  out  into  a  fine  lady  along  with  the  other  tetra  inhabitants.  
 Substrate:  Fluval  Plant  and  Shrimp  substrate  its  very  easy  to  manage  and  I  have  not  had  any  algal  bloom  as  yet  (touch  wood).  
 The  root  tabs  seems  to  help  since  the  dwarf  sagittaria  seem  to  grow  more  broader  leaves  now.  But  growth  is  very  modest  and  slow.  
 Easy  to  maintain  as  well.

 Even  if  you  add  DIY  Co2,  it  will  still  be  low  tech  only,  as  you  will  not  be  able  to  control  the  bps  (bubbles  per  second  of  Co2).  It  will  only  benifit  the  plants  however.  But,  everyone  has  their  own  choices.  Great  going   Thumb Up  .

 All  green  and  no  contrast  -  adding  some  red  plants  which  are  said  to  be  not  so  demanding.

 Thanks.  Neons  -  it  is  love  at  first  sight  for  everybody.  But  Glowlights  have  a  beauty  that  comes  only  once  they  have  set  nicely  into  the  setup.  
 Glowlights  are  not  beautiful  all  the  time,  but  under  some  combination  of  ambient  light,  tank  lights,  substrate,  background  and  their  coloration,  they  start  to  appear  outstanding.

 Absolutely  true.  My  bunch  of  glow  lights  are  all  3+yrs  old  in  my  care  and  are  all  elderly  with  hunch  back  and  bent  spines.  But  still  look  good.  Really  underrated  fish  imo

 Most  recent  FTS.
 
 
 There  is  lots  of  algae  growth  on  the  Bacopa  plants.  
 Under  the  new  lights  (led  with  white  and  blue)  the  top  most  leaves  of  the  Hygrophila  are  starting  to  appear  reddish  on  the  edges  and  this  is  growing  inwards.

 The  red  plants  that  were  added  last  -  Rosefolias  and  Ludwigia  just  melted  away,  just  a  couple  of  stems  are  remaining.  I  was  extremely  hopeful  of  the  reds  and  then  got  very  disappointed.  
 Replaced  the  Seachem  root  tabs  in  the  planted  areas  since  it  was  4-5  months  since  keeping  them,  the  dwarf  saggitaria  is  starting  to  carpet  as  expected.  
 Dosing  of  Seachem  Excel  daily,  Micros  and  Macros  alternate  days  and  every  week  min  50%  water  change  continues.  
 
 The  Red  Cherry  Shrimps  are  doing  great  and  they  have  almost  outrun  the  tank...  I  sold  quite  a  few.  
 The  glowlight  tetras  are  doing  well.  The  neons  are  doing  better  too,  the  coloration  is  very  good  now.  
 Lost  a  couple  of  neons  though,  they  thinned  down,  lost  their  coloration  and  then  just  vanished  (handiwork  of  the  shrimps  I  guess).  
 
 Added  some  Crystal  reds  and  also  my  first  Anubias  on  driftwood.  
 Some  recent  pics  of  the  tank,  its  been  1.5  years  since  setup.
