Lovely setup! Rocks and substrate are complementing the fish very well.

It can be a superb show tank with a black background. The wire clutter at the moment is distrcting too much.

You have done justice to these aggressive lot by giving them this huge tank, they totally deserve it...

Thank you.. Hamza and Hrishi.

As you suggested i will keep a black background.
At preset i have 40 demasoni's, can you please suggest whether the present rock work is sufficient or do you want me to add one more layer of rocks.

Excellent tank and great snaps .... the rock work looks artificial to me .... did you not think of making natrural piles rather than such a regulated height and set

same feeling here also.. please think to reshuffle the rocks.. it is giving an artificial feeling.

awesome plan and execution otherwise. nice fishes. Put a good background sticker also.. your tank would be a stunner.

Superb tank setup and fishes :-bd
Only required Dark Background to extract contrast and hide wires

Thanks you for suggestions and compliments.
With the present rocks i am not able to create a piles setup as these are flat and large in size and the tank width is only 1.5". In Hyderabad its difficult to get the dead rocks and its not possible to find selected size and shape of the rocks. Already i spent a lot of money for this setup, may be i will plan after couple of months for changing the rocks.
