Nice and simple setup will take good shape but I think you must add few more anubias, that will bring some prominent look.

Added the Boyu top filter back. It will help in breaking the water surface and also help in cooling the water down a bit.

I also got a stock on thermometer.ImageImage

No I haven't dosed any ferts till date. It's a low tech setup without CO2. The LFS asked me to give the ferns few more months.

They have been there for around 3 months now.

What do you suggest?
