DIY - CO2 tanks with easy growing plants Video update Pg-11

Postby Dipankar » Mon Nov 30, 2015 6:10 pm

Hi Friends
Its about 7 months I dismantled my previous planted tank and I had to do that because that tank was totally unorganized and damaged due to my unusual experiment though that was for experimental purpose. Now here is something that I want to share with you. Its nothing special creativity but it's my excitement to show you. Its nearly two and half years I am being a member in this esteem forum but till date I did nothing special to my concern but I dreamz of to do something creative but its true that everyone are not able to do masterpiece but only few talented and dedicated persons can produce masterpieces and I am lucky enough to interact with few of them and yet to meet few. As everyone sitting on the gallery are not players but that doesn't mean that they don't understand the game but they understand, enjoy and come to cheers and count me one of the gallery viewer. Sorry friends for eating your valuable time. Now moving to the project what I want to share. Before that I want to give special thanks to Sanam for few beautiful plants.
Specification of setup :
Tank 18" X 10" X 15"
Substrate construction sand topped with small grained white chips (chinir Dana)
Light 36 watt pll with diy hood
Filtration ipf sobo
Hardscape materials only small drift wood
CO2 no
Fertilizer dosing no
Plants - Polysoerma, Deformis, lily, Apenogeton bulb, chain sword, gracilis, pogostemon slender and anubias (please ignore the spelling mistake) will add java moss soon
Fauna yet not decided will go for native fishes (please give your choice)

Great start Dipankar, plants look good and tank looks neat. Keep us posted about the updates.

I am unsure about two things: 1. Don't know how the construction sand base layer will treat you in future. 2. If you are planning for a native plants only tank, you need to reconsider a few species you have introduced. Example: Anubias is native to tropical central and western Africa and not India.
Cheers,
Rajan Bhaumik
