 Hyath,
 
    There  is  no  glosso  in  there.
 
 IMO  the  rocks  will  look  good  once  the  HC  grows  and  fills  up  the  area.  This  tank  needs  to  mature.  then  it  will  look  very  beautiful.  
 
 Regards,
 
 Sridhar.P

 Thanks  everyone  for  your  kind  words  and  the  valuable  inputs.
 
 @Hamza:  You  are  correct,  that  the  ocks  are  bit  out  of  the  world.  Not  the  position  or  the  color,  problem  is  the  size  of  the  rocks.  They  are  much  smaller  than  they  needs  to  be.  I  tried  to  change  the  settings  but  while  doing  it,  I  found  Sands  are  shifting  a  lot.  So  I  gave  up.  Gradually  they  will  be  covered  by  the  HM  and  HC.
 
 @Angad:  Updated  with  Specs.  Smile
 
 @Koushik  Da/Ranjit:  Haven't  decidec  yet  on  fishes.  But  will  go  fr  Micro  species,  may  be  Borasas  Sp.  Any  sugession?
 
 @Nitin:  The  tank  is  now  in  a  growing  state  and  suddenly  I  clicked  all  the  pictures  without  any  prior  planning.  So  everything  is  there.  When  the  tank  will  be  grown  fully,  I  will  take  the  photo  after  removing  all  the  stuffs.  Anyway  thanks  for  the  sugession.
 
 @Manjesh:  This  is  the  first  time,  I  am  keeping  HM,  HC  and  Blyxa.  So  was  not  aware  about  the  size  and  growth  pattern.  Thats  why  I  messed  up  a  bit  with  the  scaping.  Just  let  them  grow,  so  they  can  create  their  own  scape.
 
 @Hayath:  They  are  not  glosso.  They  are  HC.  I  am  also  egerly  waiting  to  see  the  complete  growth  of  them.  Smile

 Beautiful....if  this  tank  lives  up  to  expectation  then  it  will  be  worth  for  a  contest.  
 Great  Work.

 Avadhoot  don't  utter  that  Word  even.  Mad  Very Happy
 
 Somehow  this  time  I  managed  to  keep  that  curse  away  of  the  tank.  Frequent  Water  change  and  Excel  helping  me  to  keep  them  at  bay.  Keeping  my  fingure  crossed  though.

 Hi  Seetharam:  Please  check  my  previous  posts.  I  tried  to  rearrange  the  Hard  scapes  right  after  getting  the  initial  growth.  But  failed  to  do  as  the  sand  is  shifting  a  lot.  So  just  left  the  tank  to  grow  as  they  want.  Hope,  within  1-2  months  everything  will  be  covered  by  plants.

 Is  it  2-3mm/cm  of  gravel?  Just  love  the  way  you  have  done,  its  something  like  'keep  it  simple',  with  only  4  plant  species.
 Can  you  tell  me  what  is  EI  method?   Unsure

 EI  means  Estimative  Dosing.  In  nutshell,  adding  dry  chemicals  directly  into  the  tank  water.  Take  a  look  at  the  link  below  to  get  the  details  of  it.

 Nicely  setup.  The  scape  will  look  better  as  it  matures.
 
 Stones  with  different  texture  looks  a  bit  out  of  place,  see  if  can  get  smaller  stones  with  the  similar  texture.  Rest  is  perfect,  great  going  Thumb Up

 Tirtha,
 does  seachem  excel  really  help  in  preventing  algae  growth?  i  seem  to  have  lots  in  my  planted  tank  and  i  am  quite  sick  of  cleaning  the  glass  every  week.  please  pm  me  the  cost  if  it  does.  how  about  putting  in  a  coupe  of  round  rocks?  they  might  do  the  trick.

 Kunal....  Excel  is  certainly  help  to  prevent  some  kind  of  algae.  But  it  is  not  algae  killer  by  nature.  Start  a  new  thread  with  the  full  desc  of  the  algae  you  are  getting.  There  are  other  solutions  to  prevent  algae  and  you  will  get  lots  of  help  to  prevent  that.

 And  thanks  everyone  for  your  kind  words  and  helpfull  inputs.  As  of  now  I  decided  to  keep  the  tank  untouched  and  let  the  plants  grow  to  their  fullest  to  get  the  final  look.
