Really cool set up and well planned Ambor! Must appreciate your detailed planning which a lot of people fail to do. Try some crypts maybe? What say? And also can add H polyspermas. I got loads that I can give away so can PM me if you want.

One question: Doesn't the backlight from the window affect the tank?
Cheers,

Thanks rajan da

1stly daytime the window covered with black curtains.. So no issues.

Nxt I have already planted sm polyspermas in right side of the tank..just under the wm..
&
I also think abt crypto.. But don't get a proper source.. Just manage with galiff wala crypto root ( rubbish choice) fr initially.. In future will add some just proper crypto..
