 cool  tank,  very  green,  liked  the  texture  of  the  plants  and  color,  Just  a  suggestion  if  you  can  remove  the  stem  plants  from  the  front  and  plant  it  back  and  create  a  wall  it  will  look  great,  as  you  have  plenty  of  space,  and  fish  will  have  some  swimming  space.  use  of  carpeting  plant  will  also  enhance  the  scape......   Rock On   Rock On

 Sanket,
 
 Nice  setup  do  not  increase  the  photo  period  or  you  will  be  inviting  Algae.  As  mentioned  by  our  friends  shift  the  stem  plants  to  the  back  and  use  some  carpet  plants  in  front.

 Thanx  for  your  suggestions  
 When  I  started  this  tank  I  had  nothing  in  mind  just   added  the  soil  and  started  planting  the  plants  as  I  got  them.Now  the  serious  problem  is  height  of  the  tank  ,it  is  only  12"-2"  substrate  and  -1"  above  water  level.  
    
 scaping  is  not  possible  as  it  will  disturb  the  substrate.  So  i  l  keep  this  tank  as  it  is  and  make  a  new  tank  with  a  nice  scape.

 Remove  stem  plants  from  left  side.  Most  of  these  plants  are  for  bigger  aquariums.
 Use  flourish  excel/glut  to  remove  algae.
 Group  the  plants.

 same  problem  as  mine   ROFL   ROFL   ROFL  layered  substrate   ROFL   ROFL   ROFL  
 
 carefully  try  removing  them,  use  carpeting  plants  to  cover  up  the  disturbed  substrate,  else  in  few  months  the  tank  will  be  crowded  with  stem  plants

 Nice
 I  would  say  that  the  tank  sounds  like  the  Noah's  arc  Smile  A  couple  of  every  species
 The  usual  advise  is  to  group  plants  {as  Rajeev  said}  so  that  the  pants  will  have  defined  areas  and  character.
 
 Buts  its  your  tank  is  you  are  happy  with  it  every  thing  else  is  secondary

 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WnJAmHdsMyU
 
 changed  lights  to  36w  pl
 
 and  split  photo  period  10am-2pm  6pm-10pm
 
 removed  a  few  unwanted  plants  
 
 wanted  to  grow  glossostigma  but  echinodorus  tenellus  is  all  over  the  tank  almost  everywhere  
 
 plz  watch  and  comment.

 The  plant  looks  healthy,  but  the  filter  seems  hard  on  them.
 
 Also,  some  hardscape  would  really  add  texture.
