Where u stay is the perfect place to make a planted tank in West Bengal. Buddy TDS is one of the main factor in planted tanks, now the stones u have taken from your locality leaches and makes your water hard and it is an issue. Use RO water and see the TDS if its is ok then start the tank, Else buy rocks online. You can PM Partha da for rocks, he is a very helpful guy.
Moreover pls Google for the right TDS required in planted tank.
All the best.
