 I  hope  you  dont  mind  me  saying  this,  I  am  being  quite  straightforward  here...
 
 Its  pretty  much  the  same  monotonous  hardscape  as  your  older  tank(or  I  rather  say  tanks).
 
 Similar  wood,  same  positioning,  just  the  white  sand  replaces  soil.  Put  in  some  creativity  mate.  Try  something  new  for  the  sake  of  it.

 Yes  Yajur.  It  would  be  only  Anubias  and  Ferns  tank.

 I  admit  it  Hamza.  The  driftwood  is  the  same  one  which  I  have  used  in  all  my  scapes.  This  driftwood  is  with  me  for  more  than  3  years.  And  I  dont  have  any  other  option  to  place  the  driftwood  in  this  manner.  Since  the  drfitwood  is  lengthy,  I  can  either  place  it  at  right  or  left  hand  side  of  the  tank.  I  cannot  place  it  in  the  middle.  If  then,  I  would  have  to  cut  the  driftwood  which  I  do  not  want  too..
 
 Definitely  I  would  try  to  do  some  modifications  to  the  scape.  The  current  scape  has  the  black  stones.  Would  soon  post  the  pics  of  them.

 Sure.  I  would  soon  post  the  pics  with  the  black  stones.  And  will  see  if  I  can  further  alter  the  driftwoods.

 Some  more  updates
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 The  driftwood  has  not  sunk  fully  (it  was  in  sun  for  more  than  a  month).  Hence  placed  the  stones  on  top.  Yet  to  arrange  the  stones.  Kept  them  temporarily.
 
 Yet  to  add  ferns..

 Its  okay-ish,  but  still  I  insist  you  can  be  more  creative  with  it.  I  see  that  the  wood  is  a  multiple  pieces  tied  together.  You  can  maybe  split/break  them  apart  and  try  something  new  spreading  them  all  over  the  tank  instead  of  one  corner.
 
 I  am  not  the  kind  of  person  to  go  with  the  crowd  and  just  blandly  appreciate  and  take  in  whats  going  on.  You  are  potentially  a  good  scaper,  and  I  am  quite  impressed  by  the  class  DIY  equipment  you  have  made  and  this  scape  doesnt  matches  all  that.  I  just  want  to  see  the  same  dedication  when  it  comes  to  aquascaping  too.  
 
 Cheers
