 Beautiful  pleasing  setup,  I'm  sure  its  under  full  sun  all  the  time.
 What  is  the  substrate?  How  old  is  the  set  up?  Ever  needed  to  clean  it?
 
 I've  a  similar  setup,  it  needs  a  cleanup  roughly  every  1.5  yrs,  its  covered,  not  much  sun!
 
 Since  few  months  the  bottom  has  started  to  accumulate  too  much  muck/something  whitesh!  Time  to  clean  the  entire  set  up  which  just  1"  layer  of  river  sand!
 
 Thanks

 They  are  kep  tin  a  shaded  area  where  they  dget  direct  sunlight  for  the  first  half  of  the  day  and  in  the  next  half,  they  get  indirect  sun!
 
 I  am  using  2-4  mm  river  sand  mixed  with  laterite  and  peat  moss  at  the  bottom  (3-4")  and  a  covering  layer  of  pea  gravels.
 
 I  clean  them  once  or  twice  in  a  month.  Cleaning  means,  siphoning  70%  water  out  and  filling  with  new  water.  That's  it!

 Hi  Samit,
 
 I  dont  have  words  to  express  what  I  felt  after  seeing  those  snaps  on  your  website.
 
 All  the  snaps  are  absolutely  fabulous.  PLants  are  extremely  healthy  and  your  photography  skills  are  just  fantastic.
 
 Congrats  and  Keep  up  the  good  work.
