 You  must  buy  a  field  of  crypt  parva,  it  will  be  good  fit  for  lowtech  carpet  in  such  tanks.  But  in  such  a  fine  sand,  cant  really  comment  much.
 
 Have  you  thought  about  Channa  barca?  excluding  the  small  fish.  It  would  look  regal.  :rockon:
 
 Plants  on  the  woods  are  looking  great  BTW!

 I  won't  be  adding  anymore  plants  at  the  front.  Need  unplanted  space  to  
 stand  on  during  maintenance   Chuckle  
 No  channa  for  now.  Maybe  in  the  future

 Any  suggestions  on  the  scaping  guyz?
 
 Is  the  background  ok?  Or  I  redo  it?  The  plants  at  the  back  still  need  to  grow  taller  to  be  seen  clearly.  And  lots  of  free  space  which  is  black.
 
 There  are  20  lagenandra  meeboldi  green  which  are  doing  very  good  at  the  left  half.
 20  Amazon  swords  and  5  ozelot  swords  in  the  mid  and  right  which  aren't  doing  so  good.  And  a  single  rubin  sword  at  the  right  corner.  
 
 
 Do  I  add  plants  to  cover  up  the  back  fully?  Like  giant  vallisneria?  
 Or  add  a  big  mesh  at  the  back  and  add  moss  on  it?  Or  ferns  etc?
 Or  more  wood  and  plants  on  it?  There's  one  foot  space  at  the  back  behind  the  woods.
 
 Won't  be  doing  it  right  now  for  a  month  or  two.  
 Looking  for  the  lowest  maintenance  option  which  looks  good.

 Hi  Doc,
 
 Though  your  tank  looks  nice  but  still  prviously  when  middle  ground  was  empty  it  was  more  attractive  to  me.
 
 It  was  showing  the  depth  of  the  tank  and  looks  more  natural  good.  Just  my  personal  opinion.

 Your  tank  looks  great.  In  fact  it  looked  great  from  day  one.   However  I  see  that  you  keep  changing  the  fish  stock  at  very  frequent  intervals.(  I  believe  you  are  making  some  LFS  very  very  happy.  Very Happy  )  But  I  feel  that  after  all  the  effort  and  investment  you  should  lay  back  and  enjoy  your  hardwork  rather  than  burning  up  your  buck  at  frequent  intervals.
 
 With  the  kind  of  tank  you  have  you  can  house  almost  any  fish  you  want  (except  monster  fish)  .  Therefore  you  will  always  be  tempted  to  try  new  stock.  There  will  be  no  dearth  of  advice  (including  mine  Very Happy  )  prompting  you  to  try  changes.  Change  is  good  but  not  in  such  short  intervals  and  such  great  cost.
 
 Cheers  for  a  great  tank.  As  they  say  in  India  the  only  thing  you  get  free  is  advice  like  mine.  All  the  best.  Thumb Up

 I  don't  think  you  necessarily  need  to  cover  the  whole  back  of  your  tank.  This  might  rather  get  boring.  If  it  was  my  tank  I  would  add  a  group  of  giant  Vallisneria  (or  some  other  plant  which  will  reach  the  surface  and  cover  part  of  it  with  its  leaves,  fish  will  love  this  especially  the  altums)  at  about  1/3  from  the  left  of  your  tank.

 my  suggestion...the  lighting  requires  a  little  morning  light.....  yellow  somewhere...  here  the  tank  is  looking  all  time  night  side  focus.  A  day  side  focus  will  give  more  beautiful  getup.
 
 
 Post  a  picture  of  a  morning/day  view  with  these  lights...lets  see.
 
 this  looks  very  raw  and  dark  from  behind.  Add  some  colour  in  lighting.

 The  tank  looks  much  better  in  person  abhis9.  Even  I  wanted  to  accennuate  the  3'  depth  with  the  plant  layout.  Maybe  my  photography  sucks  more  than  I  thought  Smile

 Thank  you  Smile  
 Now  I  understand  why  many  have  multiple  tanks.  We  want  to  keep  every  fish  we  can  Thumbs Up  
 No  more  changes  now.  Will  add  12  or  more  altums  and  if  space  permits  then  other  fish.   Maybe  6  blue  diamond  discus  to  satisfy  my  family.

 That's  what  I  was  thinking.  May  replace  the  swords  with  giant  vals  on  the  right  1/3rd  or  more.  Don't  want  to  block  my  overflow  chamber  on  the  left.  
 Don't  want  them  to  take  over  and  increase  my  maintenance  though  Chuckle

 Actually  the  pics  I  posted  are  with  only  half  of  the  lights  on  (only  4  out  of  8  tubes  turned  on).
 I'm  not  able  to  click  good  pics  with  full  lights  on  Crying or Very sad  tooo  bright.  Have  to  try  other  settings  in  my  cam
