 Sandeep  I  use  the  Master  Tool  -  an  old  Credit  Crad  to  clean  my  Glass,  You  can  slip  it  in  anywhere.  Cheap,  convenient  and  it  is  excellent  at  removing  even  the  most  stubborn  algae.  Never  scratches  the  glass.
 
 Venket,  I'll  see  what  I  can  get.

 Trevor  took  the  Pics  of  the  tank  almost  14-15  weeks  after  setup.
 
 The  tank  gets  a  regular  50%  weekly  water  change.  It  is  CO2  injected  and  has  4  x  20  watt  Trulites  6500K.
 
 I  was  dosing  Glutraldehyde  too  at  1  drop  of  25%  solution  per  week  directly  to  the  tank,  no  side  effects  to  the  shrimps  which  are  the  sole  inhabitants.  The  tank  is  about  100  liters.
 
 I  slowly  increased  this  to  3  drops  a  week,  still  no  hiccups.
 
 However  when  I  went  to  4  drops  a  week,  a  few  Tiger  shrimp  copped  it.  Immediate  water  change  of  90%  and  things  got  reset.
 
 Once  in  a  while  I  add  a  few  drops  of  PMDD  and  a  pinch  of  KNO3  and  KH2PO4.  Though  they  are  not  really  necessary.
 
 Feeding  is  a  few  pellets  once  a  week.  The  shrimp  are  breeding  happily.
 
 The  tank  will  need  a  massive  pruning  in  a  months  time  or  else  the  moss  that  is  underneath  the  new  growth  will  start  decaying.
 
 This  kind  of  Moss  aquascape  will  not  have  a  life  of  more  than  6  months  in  my  opinion.
 
 You  have  redo  the  moss  tying  up  and  the  moss  wall  regularly  to  keep  it  looking  good.
 The  first  month  it  looks  bare,  then  slowly  grows  to  it's  full  potential  in  about  12  weeks  and  remains  looking  good  for  a  couple  of  months  more.
 
 Once  it  is  overgrown  it  is  time  to  remove  every  thing,  pass  on  the  excess  moss  and  start  all  over  again.

 Madan  is  on  land  for  only  six  months  in  a  year.  The  rest  of  the  year  he  is  at  sea.  You  will  have  to  wait  a  couple  of  months  till  he  is  back  in  Bangalore.  Smile
