 While  through  a  book  titled  "NAtural  Aquariums"recently  I  came  upon  a  good  &  simple  tank  for  angelfish.
 Tank  size  is  36x18x18.  
 Three  sides,  Right,  left  &  back  will  be  densely  planted  with  Vallsernia  in  a  inverted  U  shape.  the  foreground  is  planted  with  drawf  echinodorous  species.
 The  elegance  of  this  tank  with  just  two  type  of  plants  &  angels  is  breathtaking.
 I  have  already  planted  Vals  in  half  of  the  tank,  I  ran  out  of  vals,  waiting  for  vals  in  my  outdoor  nursury  to  grow  up.
 I  am  not  able  to  get  drawf  echinodorous,  can  somebody  help  with  getting  these  plants  or  any  other  similar  looking  plants.
 This  will  have  only  angels.
 Line  diagaram  is  as  folows
 Dark  green  area  is  vals  and  green  spots  in  front  are  echinodorous.
 Sorry  for  the  picture,  paintbrush  is  not  my  cup  of  tea  Very Happy  
 
 
 Suggestions  &  ideas  welcome

 Sridhar,
 
 They  are  available  a  plenty  in  all  the  LFS  here.    You  might  get  it  in  Palghat  too.    I  guess,  they  receive  plants  from  www.sreepadma.com
 
 Sreepadma  also  ships  plansts  to  places.    A  friend  of  mine  here  buy  plants  regularly  through  them,  they  ship  it  by  courier.    Guess  one  day  shipping  (for  Bangalore  )is  not  a  problem.    Their  prices  are  also  not  so  high.
 
 Out  of  Topic:    Sreepadma  also  ship  P.  Denisonii

 Sandeep!  It  looks  interesting....
 
 but  you  have  to  keep  pruning  the  Vallisneria  because  it  may  out  grow  and  cross  the  borders  you  have  planned  very  quickly...
 
 Hope  you  are  ready  for  that....  Smile

 Is  there  a  easy  way  of  marking  lines  in  the  tank.
 Maintaining  the  shape  would  be  easier.

 I  have  seen  people  using  acrylic  to  set  the  border....  but  that  wouldn't  set  the  border  of  vallineria  though...  since  it  comes  out  through  the  sand....
 
 May  be  you  should  have  done  this  first...  added  a  border,  add  sand  separately  into  the  border  and  out  of  the  border...  not  sure  though  if  this  would  work.....

 Use  some  suitable  material  (flat  rocks,/pottery  bits?  )  to  form  the  shape  in  the  gravel  -sort  of  a  divider  for  the  sections  -  the  same  way  you  would  do  it  if  you  were  setting  up  terraces  in  the  tank.

 Getting    a  plastic  strip  (measurement  ruler)  as  of  the  height  of  the  sand,  bending  it  with  heat  as  required  and  putting  that  as  the  boundary  might  help.
 
 just  a  crazy  idea,  That  might  as  well  work.

 You  may  mark  a  temporary  border  by  inserting  a  thin  plastic  inchtape  all  around  giving  it  a  desired  shape  plant  the  desired  flora  and  then  once  they  start  thriving  you  may  take  out  the  temporary  border....I  think  this  should  work  well.....

 I  think  you  should  create  one  for  your  self  and  then  do  a  DIY  article  for  all  of  us....(you  have  the  books  &  all  the  plants  with  you  now)  Will  need  CO2  for  sure  and  good  lights...
