Light - 13W philips LED , reflector - DIY aluminium sheet made
Substrate - amazonia old
Filter - Hang on
Fert - lab grade and ada micro
Plant - Hair grass, java moss, ludwigia sp. cuba, L. repens, L. Arcuta, HM
Photo period - 11 hours

(please ignore the aquarium quality :P, will buy a new one if can grow plant on it)

Please suggest if the light is too high for this aquarium size.

Also, please anyone can confirm whether galiff market is open on coming Sunday (8thOct)?

I would suggest to reduce lighting to 8 hours and consider supplying co2 in one or other form.

Thanks for the reply, I will consider excel. Also, is it good to reduce to 9w or 11w led bulb? Anyone can suggest if any spot light available in general electric shop which can be used in 1 feet nano?

Thanks Nirmalya for your suggestion. WC 4 times in a week is difficult for me. I will try it twice in a week.
Also, I have 5 adult cherry, 8 baby cherry and 2 assassin snails are there, I feed them tetrabits. I dont want to add fish because of shrimp.

Changed the scape.
removed - red amazon, java moss
Added - Christmas moss, reineckii mini, HM moved to left-top corner as a background plant.
Started excel dosing everyday.
Photo period - down to 9 hours

lets see how it goes in next 10 days.
