 Hey  Harshal,
 
 Great  going,  am  sure  you  going  to  excite  the  whole  aquatic  community  in  India  with  your  handiwork!  Clapping  
 
 Guess  it  time  for  the  first  trimming  already.  Also  try  and  check  the  golden  ratio.  A  3:  2  balance  is  the  best.

 i  guess  you  are  80%  there.  the  remaining  20%  would  be  the  filling  of  the  foreground  by  HC.  And  with  the  equipments(ADA  ferts  stuff)  you  have  growing  cuba  will  be  like  a  piece  of  cake.

 Hi  All
 
 Well  had  a  little  bit  of  free  time  today  so  decided  to  take  a  few  snaps  of  the  aquarium.I  am  Liking  the  way  Lindernia  Rotundifolia  is  growing,  its  the  first  time  I  have  tried  this  plant  out  and  so  far  I  am  liking  it   Smile  .  The  Hair  grass  is  growing  well.  The  only  Issue  so  far  has  been  hair  algae,  but  with  the  planting  almost  complete  now  I  am  hoping  to  put  this  issue  away.  The  Ovalis  is  another  plant  that  is  absolutely  beautiful...
 
 The  Ph  is  arround  6.7  and  night  with  areation  it  goes  upto  7  the  Kh  is  at  4
 I  am  dosing  10ml  of  Brighty  K  and  3  ml  of  Step  1.
 Light  Period:  4  lamps  for  8  hrs  and  2  lamps  for  7  hrs.
   So  here  is  the  update  as  on  today,  as  usual  all  comments  are  welcome!
 
 
 Plants  added  are  
 1.  Tonnina
 2.  E.stelleta
 3.  Ludwigia  Ovalis
 4.  Rotala  Rotundifolia  Red
 
 @  mudjawd
 
 I  know...but  I  have  always  had  issues  with  HC  lets  see  what  happens  this  time.

 Hey  Harshal
 
 Blyxa  should  look  good  ......  But  I  think  Some  Crypts  like  the  ones  you  have  put  on  the  right  would  look  good  and  provide  some  contrast  to  the  Tonina  and  HC  in  the  forground,  Since  Blyxa  has  pretty  much  the  same  green  color  as  Tonina  and  HC  it  would  just  merge  in  there  and  not  provide  some  good  contrast
 
 Just  my  2  cents   Smile

 Hi  Seetharam
 
 I  agree  with  you  on  that...the  only  issue  about  using  Crypts  would  be  that  it  would  mirror  the  right  side  want  to  avoid  symmetries  in  the  tank.  What  do  you  think  of  Windelow  fern  or  e.tenellesus.
