 looking  nice,  friend.  Thumb Up  
 The  front  line  of  substrate  seems  to  be  wavy,  are  you  going  to  correct  it,  or  it  is  supposed  to  be  that  way.

 Like  the  cabinet  that  you  have  made  from  the  stand.
 I  am  no  expert  but  the  left  handside  looks  crowded.  And  the  right  hand  side  is  bit  too  bare  in  comparison.  Is  it  intentional?
 
 Like  the  Pinatifidia  that  you  have  in  front,  but  like  Jabba  mentions,  is  it  not  a  stem  plant  and  can  grow  large  quickly.  Might   block  view  of  the  wood.

 Sorry  for  being  blunt,  but  still  this  drift  wood  looks  same.
 
 It  looks  like  any  other  tank  with  drift  wood.  
 
 Infact  the  previous  one  looks  like  a  "staged  crab/lobster"  standing  voraciously  to  feed  on  something.  you  can  use  it  back  in  the  same  position.  Its  ugly  but  unique  Smile  
 
 Much  harder  to  scape  and  will  look  gorgeous  in  the  picture  with  lush  green  carpet  and  red  plants  over  the  driftwood.

 Hi  Seetharam,  Nice  tank  and  plantation.  Like  the  Pinnatifida  in  the  front.
 
 1  suggestion  though,  you  could  have  used  more  rocks  in  the  right  hand  side.  It  would  have  given  more  character  to  the  scape.  See  this  scape  from  Arif  Hamza  for  instance  and  compare.  Hope  this  helps.

 @  Jaiby,  Sam  -  Yes,  they  grow  tall  if  you  let  them,  Trim  the  main  stem  gowing  upward  will  promote  horizontal  growth  and  keep  them  compact.  
 
 @  Abhis,  Sam  -  You  are  right,  But  i  am  not  yet  done  with  the  planting.  I  will  add  some  H.Pinnatifida  near  the  driftwood  on  the  right  and  one  of  they  key  plant  of  the  scape  ...  Needle  Leaf  java  Fern  is  yet  to  go  in  .....  Will  add  that  in  a  week  or  two.  Then  it  will  be  in  order   Smile  
 
 @  Nayakere  -   Chuckle  ,  That  was  what  i  had  in  mind  when  i  lined  up  my  6  Ft  and  3  Ft  Stand.  But  just  dont  find  enough  time  nowadays.  This  setup  itself  of  getting  a  ADA  Style  Cabinet,  Crystal  Clear  Glass  Tank  etc  etc  i  have  been  planning  for  a  year  now.  So  the  6  Ft  stand  in  out  now,  Left  with  this  setup  and  a  3  Feet  Stand  with  4  x  18  Inch  Cube  Tanks.  
 
 "The  Ascent"  Glosso  is  struggling,  Blyxa  is  doing  well  though.  Could  be  the  heat,  Now  thinking  of  replacing  with  my  Fav  Plant  "H.Cuba"   Smile  ,  Use  a  cooling  fan  on  it  and  bring  down  the  temp.  Should  be  done  by  this  weekend.  Will  post  an  update  soon.
 
 @  Sandeep  -  You  are  right,  Its  not  supposed  to  be  like  that,  Will  be  set  right  during  first  maintenance  regime.  After  7  hours  of  standing  and  setting  this  up,  just  did  not  have  the  energy  to  do  the  fine  tuning.  In  fact  there  is  still  some  moss  to  be  tied  onto  a  few  places  and  kept  near  the  stones,  will  be  doing  all  these  fine  tuning  in  the  next  few  days.
 
 @  Garothman  -  The  other  driftwood  seemed  to  be  falling  apart,  Also  did  not  like  the  texture  and  look.  I  ould  have  had  to  cover  the  entire  driftwood  in  moss,  which  would  still  looked  good  ,  but  that  was  not  what  i  had  in  mind.  As  for  the  driftwood  i  used  now  ,  its  individual  opinion.  If  you  look  at  it  from  your  point  of  view  then  any  tank  with  this  kind  of  driftwood  is  the  same  ....  But  for  me  its  the  overall  scape  that  matters  and  the  end  result.
 
 @  Deba  -  That  scape  is  nice  ....  But  firstly   i  do  not  want  to  replicate  anything.  Secondly  thats  not  what  i  am  looking  at  achieveing  in  the  end  result.  When  i  setup  a  tank,  I  pretty  much  can  visualize  the  way  i  want  to  see  it  3  months  from  now  and  then  i  do  my  planting  and  scaping.  My  tank  is  a  triangular  orientation  scape  with  a  flow  from  left  to  right.  Also  as  mentioned  some  plants  yet  need  to  go  in  which  will  make  a  huge  difference  in  the  way  the  scape  turns  out.

 I  think  it  is  a  interesting  concept,  somewhat  like  a  fast  flowing  hill  stream  flowing  from  left  to  right.

 Hi  Seetharam,
 
 It's  fine.  Just  keep  going.  I  think  there  is  not  much  time.
 
 Best  of  luck.
