    Details:
    1. The tank has gone through a very rough Hair Algae period. But now 90% of them died out and rest of them are melting.
    2. Stopped dosing extra Iron.
    3. Changed the bulbs to 4200K and 6500K.
    4. Replanted Glosso for the Third time.
    5. Relocate most of the stems from their Original position.
    6. Water is 30% cloudy. God knows Why? Reduced phosphate dosing.

    Let me know your views. :proud:

    Thanks for the comment Jurik. Now when ever I am looking at the tank I am being afreid to think, how much I have to do to get the desired effect.

    As of now I have no plan for fishes. CO2 is running at 5BPS 24x7 so I don't want to take it down for fishes.

    One question.... after seeing the tank, what you think about the foreground? I don't think, Glosso will go well with this setup. How about some other plants? Maybe Lileopus Brasiliense or a mix of Pervula and Vivipara?? :confused:
    What you say?

    if available i would plant 1/2 circlet with apogostem helferi and maybe some e.parvula (vivipara will be too big for the forground up to 25 cm ^^) and let some plant free area there - then you will have something like a little arena ..

    i´m not sure about this idea - maybe just Lileopus Brasiliense

    i suppose you try to achieve 30ppm of co2 in your tank, as there are a lot of plants, there schouldnt be any problems with fishes at day - only maybe at night, for this you will need a solenoid (check your co2 and ph in the morning before the light goes on)

    The first scape was good, but I love this new layout. It's very natural. Good job!

    Nothing left except the ferns and Anubias inside the tank. In Summer mercury touched 49 degree C here and I don't have a chiller. So you can understand. :(
