if you are planning for plants that need light, i think that the pll fixture is a little too high.

yes thats right..i was also thinking about the same..but my main dissatisfaction is with the left side big boulder lava.The rest of the rocks are not that big sanam as their bases are not buried deep inside the substrate IMO.
Thanks sanam for your sugg..will try to reposition some of the rocks tomorrow morning..

Bro actually the fixture was made for my earlier 50G (3x1.5x1.5) feet tank.But recently i discarded it and made this one.
If the light is too much for this, then i can move the fixtures to a little more height.Wat say?

he meant to say that lower the fixture. imo 4"-5" from water surface is enough. However, for all my tanks, I keep lights at 1" gap max... :) It heats the water quite a bit. but I like the extra light I get to compensate... :D
If you think the light is too much, remove one lamp and lower it...bttr dat way than extra electricity bills.

oops didnt get him..
actually the fixture height is intentinally made to ease my work inside the tank..would lower it near to the water surface after plantation is made as per my need.it would only take seconds to lower it..see below pic.

ILIYAS- I dont think the rocks are not appropriate ....you just need to use them well ....am not scaper. But I would suggest to watch a video of James Findley....check it out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uv0x42x-r7Y nice video about placing the rock and all :) your tank seems a promising one :) best of luck :)
