Very nice beginning. Keep it up.

Are you planning to add ferts and CO2?

Thanks.

No, I don't plan to add ferts or C02 to this tank. Want to keep it low tech.
I call this setup Shrimp central :D .

Here's a quick grab SanamMarik. Excuse my over enthusiastic Red Guppies; they were just fed and thought I was doling out more grub.

Changed lights and took another picture of the Hemianthus Umbrosum from a different angle.
Had to maneuver the tank a bit to get this image.

Just got a few of these plants 4 days back. The LFS mentioned that these are Liverwort, is that correct ?
I added them to the aquarium today, tied them down to some rocks.
Partial water change coming up.

I now know that this is Süsswassertang/Süßwassertang.
I have also added a few clumps of Cyperus Helferi to this tank and they seem to be doing well.

Thanks SanamMarik, will do.
Been a bit busy, I will share more in some time.

Major change in the fauna:
All my Red Guppies and some 10-15 RCS were taken away by an enthusiastic nephew(a teenager).
He too has been bitten by the Aquarium bug :D and wanted to start his first aquarium in a 10 liter goldfish bowl.
So, I built an aquarium for him 18 X 14 X 18 inches (LxBxH).

I also gave him my Sun Sun 302 HBL filter (along with one settled/seeded filter pad) which I was using in my tank.
My new filter is an HBL 303, seeded it with one of my older filter pads.

I have since restocked the tank with some Glow Light and Amber Tetras and 5 Chela Dadiburjori(really love them)
