 I  personally  like  abstract  set  ups.  No  theme,  or  flow,  or  symmetry....etc  etc...Just  plain  simple  NATURAL.....things  strewn  around  as  if  they  fell  in  there  naturally.....Nothing  MADE  UP  about  it.....
 Black  background  always  does  wonders  for  a  planted  tank.  It  brings  out  the  green.

 Debarghya,  I  like  the  idea  of  only  a  grass  field..  except  that  I  have  a  few  things  to  hide  from  the  view  for  which  the  driftwood  serves  the  purpose..  yet  to  invest  in  an  all  glass  setup  like  the  ADA  systems  Smile
 
 Lawrence..  I  never  said  a  black  backdrop  Smile  I  am  thinking  of  something  offwhite  or  very  light  blue.  I  guess  the  black  won't  fit  in  with  the  view  I  am  trying  to  get.  
 
 TIMS  ..Yes  the  blue  pipe  is  an  eyesore.  I  am  still  thinking  how  to  hide  the  blue  pipe..  I  am  yet  to  find  a  transparent  pneumatic  pipeline..  All  of  them  come  in  bold  colors..Let  me  see  if  rearranging  a  bit  in  the  back  will  hide  it  from  the  view.
 
 Everyone..  thanks  for  the  comments  and  the  creative  ideas.
 
 Regards

 Atanu,
 
 Beautiful  Tank!!!!
 
 If  the  blue  pipe  is  connected  following  a  needle  Valve  then  there  are  a  few  transparent  tubes  available  which  can  withstand  the  pressure.  I  use  a  transparent  tube  myself.

 Hi  Atanu,
 
 Pneumatic  tubing  is  not  a  must  at  this  stage.  Use  a  regular  Airline  tubing  or  silicone  airline  tubing.  
 
 You  can  pick  it  from  me  on  your  way  back  home.

 At  the  end  point  you  do  not  need  the  pneumatic  tube.  An  ordinary  airline  tube  available  at  any  LFS  will  do.  Here  both  a  green  airline  pipe  and  transparent  silicon  airline  pipe  is  used.  At  the  filter  point  the  green  pipe  is  just  pushed  and  slid  into  the  transparent  silicon  pipe  and  can  be  pulled  out  when  required  -  So  low  is  the  pressure  here.  Same  goes  for  any  Co2  diffuser/reactor  units  in  the  aquarium.

 Nice  work  Atanu,
 Very  nicely  planed  tank
 Just  a  suggestion  though,  your  lighting  may  be  a  little  inadequate  for  the  HC,
 also  you  will  need  to  trim  the  mosses  regularly  so  they  will  grow  well  and  you  will  be  able  to  differentiate  one  from  the  other.
 I  love  the  way  you  have  placed  the  wood  with  the  moss  on  top,  If  i  am  correct  the  moss  will  grow  out  and  the  whole  thing  will  look  like  a   bushy  tree.

 Surya:  Thanks  for  the  willow  moss..  Its  more  suitable  than  the  nana  on  the  wood(which  was  there  earlier)  and  better  than  any  other  moss(because  of  big  frond  size)  for  such  a  small  landscape...Your  gift  made  my  tank  100  times  better.
 
 Mayur:  Bang  on  target..  I  was  seeing  the  leaves  going  yellow  in  some  of  my  HC..not  able  to  understand  the  reason..  Attached  another  PLL  and  am  seeing  all  of  them  bubbling..Now  I  need  to  balance  the  dosing  again..which  I  will  do  slowly  over  a  period.  Thank  you.
 
 One  thing  was  still  puzzling..  I  was  using  a  Boyu  9  watt  clip  on  pll  light  earlier,  and  I  was  not  seeing  the  HC  problem  then..  they  were  giving  out  new  shoots  and  was  rich  green..  The  yellowing  started  after  I  put  on  the  PLL..Few  HC  bush  which  was  actually  in  the  shade  of  the  rock  are  actually  doing  well  than  few  other  fellows  which  are  out  in  the  open  under  direct  light..  I  was  guessing  nutrition  issue..  but  then  I  am  dosing  and  doing  water  change  everyday  and  all  my  other  plants  are  doing  well  including  the  hairgrass..  a  very  tricky  plant..  Lets  see  how  it  does  under  a  72  watt  light..keeping  my  finger  crossed.
