 I  like  the  fact  that  it  looks  like  exactly  like  a  rock  left  in  the  garden  with  grass  and  other  plants  growing  around  it...its  so  natural.

 Bhushan  how  do  you  go  about  when  you  use  same  old  sand  from  the  old  setup?  As  everyone  knows  a  new  ADA  AS  needs  haevy  and  regular  water  change  initially.  Now  you  are  using  same  sand  without  disturbing  it  in  your  setup.  
 But  when  you  rip  off  a  setup,  dry  the  sand  and  put  it  back  to  the  shelf  and  someday  plan  to  use  it  after  about  a  month  or  so,  still  you  need  heavy  and  regular  water  change?

   Avadhoot,  when  I  take  down  an  old  set  up.  I  am  extremely  cautious  pulling  out  the  plants.  The  stem  plants  are  easy  as  the  root  system  is  not  as  extensive.   Deep  rooted  plants  like  crypts  are  pulled  out  real  slowly  causing  the  least  amount  of  disturbance  in  the  substrate.  If  I  feel  that  it’s  going  to  cloud  up  the  water  pretty  bad  I  just  trim  the  roots  at  about  an  inch  from  the  crown.  Most  plants  can  grow  back.  Just  leave  the  old  roots  in  the  substrate.  They  would  not  cause  any  problems.  Next  I  siphon  off  all  the  accumulated  mulm  on  the  top  of  the  old  Aquasoil  along  with  the  disintegrated  Aquasoil.  Level  the  substrate  and  add  a  thin  layer  of  new  Aquasoil  on  the  top  as  needed.
 If  I  am  using  all  reused  Aquasoil   I  just  follow  my  regular  water  change  routine  in  the  first  few  day  .  i.e.  (  two   30%  waterchanges   every  week).  If  I  use  a  thin  layer  of  new  AS  on  top  I  would  do  three  waterchanges  per  week  .

 Thanks  a  lot.  No,  ADA  substrate  is  not  necesssary  to  make  a  good  scape.  It  is  something  designed  specifically  to  grow  aquatic  plants  so  when  I  set  up  a  tank  I  do  not  have  to  worry  about  that  aspect  and  can  concentrate  more  on  the  actual  scape  instead.

 Some  final  pictures  of  this  scape.  It  was  ranked  445th  in  IAPLC  2009.   Still  a  long  way  to  go.   Chuckle  
 The  actual  picture  submitted  to  ADA  was  different.  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Let  me  know  what  you  guys  think.

 I  think  the  tank  looks  amazing  and  love  the  rock  placement  as  well.  
 It  is  much  better  than  Amano  style  carbon  copy  tanks  which  seem  to  pop  up  everyday.
 Do  you  think  you  didn't  get  a  higher  ranking  because  you  didn't  follow  the  ADA  style?

 Beta....  if  you  look  into  last  couple  of  years  IAPLC  results,  you  will  see  most  of  the  tanks  within  first  10  are  using  very  less  stems.  I  think  ADA  is  looking  for  a  scape  which  can  be  sustained  for  a  long  time  without  much  maintenance.  Scapes  with  lots  of  stems  and  high  maintenance  plants  are  not  getting  higher  rank.

 Excellent  scape  Bhushan  .....   Clapping   ....  Congratulations  on  your  Ranking  
 
 Agree  with  Tirtha  .....  one  of  the  grading  parameters  is  long  term  maintainance  .
