 Hi  all,
 I  was  kind  of  feeling  bored  with  the  earlier  Fern  scape,  and  thought  the  new  year  would  appreciate  a  new  scape..   Very Happy  
 This  was  my  earlier  Fern  scape  thread..  NIDHI's  Fern  Tank  Journal
 The  tank  dimension  -  36  X  18  X  18  inches.  190  lts  or  50  gallons.
 Lights  -  36w  X  2  PLL  and  21w  X  2  T5  tubes.  6  hours  photo  period  as  of  now.
 Filtration  -  one  internal  power  filter  and  a  power  head.
 Substrate  -  ADA  -  Amazonia.  3  X  9  Lts  bag.
 Co2  -  90  BPM,  24x7  via  diffuser.
 Hardware  -  driftwood  and  lava  rocks.
 Flora  -  Narrow  leaf  java  fern  (Microsorum  pteropus  "needle  leaves"),  Windelov  java  fern  (Microsorum  pteropus  'Windelov'),  Dwarf  java  fern  (  Microsorum  pteropus  'Dwarf'),  Bolbitis  heudelotii,  Java  Moss  (Vesicularia  dubyana),  Glosso  (Glossostigma  elatinoides),  Staurogyne  repens  and  Echinodorus  'vesuvius'  (Echinodorus  Angustifolia)..  will  be  adding  some  back  ground  plants,  may  be  stem  plants,  long  hair  grass  or  vallisneria  nana..
 Fauna  -  Yet  to  decide..
 
 
 
 
 
 All  critics  are  welcome...   Thumb Up

 Hi  Nidhi,
 
 Can  you  move  the  left  most  drift  wood  and  rocks(in  the  first  pic,  appears  below  to  power  head)  in  the  negative  space  between  the  two  java  ferns.  (Almost  near  the  center  of  the  tank.)  that  would  make  it  look  more  balanced.

 Nidhi,
 
 It  is  looking  good  already  and  will  be  super  when  it  fill  in  I  would  not  add  background  plants.

 I  am  thinking  of  Rotala  Bunches  (can  give  you  a  few  cuttings),  vallisneria  Nana  and  some  HM  in  the  Midground.  
 
 Cheers,

 @  Preetham,
 Do  you  want  me  to  move  the  drift  to  'A'  or  'B'?
 
 
 @  Karthik,
 Well,  gimme  those..  As  much  as  you  can  spare,  lets  see  how  they  turn  up  in  my  tank.

 Hi  Nidhi,  your  new  setup  looks  nice   Thumb Up  
 But  one  suggestion,  don't  use  vallisneria  nana  as  it  will  take  over  other  carpet  plants  soon  (like  Glosso,  Staurogyne  etc).
