 In  Dutch  style  they  follow  BG,  MG  and  FG  distinctly  with  terrecing  and  you  will  get  high  contrast  of  colors  there.  Mostly  Stem  Plants.
 
 Please  correct  me  if  I  am  wrong.                

 
 MG,  BG  AND  FG???  Surprised

 If  you  want  that  Navneeth,  do  your  water  changes  regularly,  carry  on  with  regular  dosing.  Minimum  pruning  to  avoid  stem  plants  shading  the  lights.
 
 Don't  bother  about  what  anyone  says.  Don't  look  to  add  all  and  every  plant  you  see.
 
 JUST  LET  THE  PLANTS  GROW  (  Say  it  like  "who  let  the  dogs  out").  ROFL  
 
 In  6-8  months  you'll  be  there.
 
 I  am  glad  you  like  my  tank  I  simply  love  it.  Very Happy

 HI  Navaneeth,
 
 Very  nice  growth!  I  'm  sure  your  tank  will  look  stunning  when  the  moss  grows.

 Surya

 i  have  a  small  querry!
 now  i  have  3  types  of  moss  growing  on  the  drift  woods...
 
 1.  is  on  the  drift  wood  which  is  on  the  left  side.
 2.  the  other  is  on  the  branch  in  the  middle...
 3.  the  third  is  on  the  third  piece  of  drift  wood  on  the  right  side..
 
 my  querry  is  should  i  keep  them  so  close  together,  because  when  they  grow  they  might  grow  above  one  another  or  should  i  keep  them  apart???
 
 thanks

 Hi  Navaneeth,
 
 It  might  not  be  a  good  idea  to  mix  moss  as  it  would  be  difficult  to  seperate  them  once  they  grow.  Leaving  a  little  space  will  be  a  good  idea  and  also  it  will  help  you  in  triming  them  for  good  growth.
 
 Well  thats  what  I  think.....  will  wait  to  hear  from  others.
 
 Regards,
 Surya

 Hi  Navaneeth,
 
 I'm  realy  not  good  at  aquascaping.  But  if  it  had  be  my  tank  I  would  move  keep  move  the  wood  where  there  is  enough  light  as  moss  tand  to  do  well  under  bright  light.  Guess  you  could  try  moving  the  right  side  wood  a  little  to  the  front  and  the  left  side  too.  Cant  realy  make  out  if  the  center  wood  is  resting  on  either  of  the  woods  or  not?  Thats  my  opinion.
 
 ANd  the  above  could  be  acheived  if  you  move  the  forground  plant  little  more  to  the  front.  You  would  have  enough  space  in  the  middle  to  play  aroud  with  the  drift  wood  to  see  if  you  could  acheive  some  better  looks.
 
 Regards,
 Surya
 
 Reagrds,
 Surya

 Navneet  waiting  for  the  pics.  Im  sure  with  help  from  the  experts  around  you,  the  tank  will  be  worth  the  effort  and  a  good  surprise  for  your  parents.   Thumbs Up

 The  easiest  way  to  fight  algae  is,  have  water  circulation  all  over  the  tank.   Algae  finds  very  difficult  to  cling  on  and  start  taking  off  in  flowing  water.   But  if  you  already  have  them,  water  movement  can't  help  until  you  remove  them  completely.   Obviously,  moss,  parts  of  driftwood/stones,  sides  of  tank  glass  are  the  common  places  where  they  start  to  get  a  hold  not  to  mention,  cryptocoryne  leaves.   Installing  a  hang  on  filter  on  the  front  of  the  side  glass  could  help  a  good  deal.   Water  changes/water  circulation  has  helped  me  more  than  anything  else  in  fighting  algae.
 Also  if  you  can  get  a  hold  on  a  few  Tropheus,  they  would  graze  all  day.   Another  option  would  be  baby  plecos  and  tilapias.
