Thanks... The plants used are cryptocoryne wendtii, amazon sword, cryptocoryne sp., cabomba(red), longhorn, hm, java moss, rotala, dwarf sagg. That's all I guess.

Hi sanam...Thanks for the bowl... Its been a couple of years with no problems what so ever... I do a 50% water change every week... Lights are put on only at night for about 6 hrs with a 11 watt cfl... It has only one air stone in it... The substrate is simple aquarium sand you get for 30/kg...
And for the tank yeah a bit of trimming would do good but I want a more natural jungle feel not a proper aquascaped tank... Though I trimm from time to time... But will take your advice and try trimming and see how it looks... I can grow them back when ever I want... Thanks again
