So, I have been very busy these days with work as I mentioned earlier and the little time I got after or before work, I spent it after the tank.

A. This is the first alteration that happened with the foreground in July 2015 when I ripped off the entire tenellus foreground to give the tank a barren look. Generally I don't fear much with cloudy water due to such major changes caused by substrate disturbances as I go for major alteration only on WC days with a huge water change of almost 80% and thorough syphoning. At the end of all the hardwork I was quite happy with the results that looked visually impressive.

B. This is the second phase of changes that occured in the tank in August end. I got a lot of plant cuttings from various fellow KAC members/friends and bought a few that I wanted to try/retry hence I wanted another bit of rescaping one my say. I added a few lemon tetras too though I don't bother about the livestock anymore. Concentrating too much on the fishes makes the focus divert from the plants which are of more importance to me. This time risked it more and changed the hardscape a bit too... so the vertical large rock on the right hand side have been removed and I have been optimistic to diffuse DIY co2 with a ceramic-glass diffuser. The disclaimer comes before you start asking me, No! There's still no industrial revolution in the tank yet!!!

The result captured here is not of good quality, with my phone camera and I would be going for a click sooner or later. Till then I need to keep adding plants and let the plants grow!

Thanks a ton for the appreciations Rahul. There's just one big thing I believe in and according to that I try to be honest towards the hobby every moment. It helps increase the zeal to learn, to deal with the hobby with a matured approach, differentiate between the pros and cons and boosts the 3Ps I always talk about everywhere, Patience, Persistence and Perseverance!!!

I don't care where I stand today as what matters to me is where I will take my hobby tomorrow. And those who feel things come easy for me than others, trust me I too like a lot of seniors in the hobby am struggling and fighting every moment to survive!!!
Cheers,
Rajan Bhaumik

1. DIY Co2
2. 2x36watts PLL
3. Macro: EI dosing on a much higher P and lower N than recommended along with additional Seachem K. Micro: Seachem Flourish comprehensive.

@Gurudev every time when I see your tank each time I think what the special thing you are adding in the water which I'm not :D .
Today I again asked myself the same and got answered it is "dedication, patience, zeal to learn, emotion and above of all true love for your hobby with as least as possible monetary investment".
Salute you brother............ ^:)^ ^:)^ ^:)^ ^:)^ ^:)^

I wont agree completely to the least money spending part completely. Its actually sensible spending for me. A lot of elements are worth spending and a lot other are not, the more you have control over your impulses and learn and analyze, the more are the chances of being wiser in the hobby.

Almost 80% of the hobbists I have seen around are impulsive morons irrespective of age and gender who wants to replicate what they visually see around. They don't even realize that the result that they see in the form of pictures, mindblowing aquascapes in this case are results of years and even decades of experience, dedication, knowledge and hardwork that develop that amount of skillset and its not possible to replicate them overnight given the best of resources. It's like becoming a Christiano Ronaldo overnight have gotten the Mercurial Superfly boots or becoming Sachin Tendulkar the same way acquiring the SG MB Elite Bats.

Thomas Henry Huxley, the great English biologist commonly popular as Darwin's Bulldog once quoted, "Try to learn something about everything and everything about something." I always followed the phrase and considered that I have travelled beyond the crossing where learning something about this hobby happened to be. Thus like many other adventures in my life I am after the pursuit of learning a lot and delivering as much as I can with time...

Rajan Bhaumik
