Thanks for the reply
1) tanks no problem. I have many.
2) what is laterite? Where will I get it? Any alternatives?
3)sand , no problem with that.
4)lights , I'll manage.
5)filter ,ok I have.
6)NPK, can I use that is sold in local " farmers seed and fertiliser shops" (kissan beez bhandar).
What is rexolin, where and how to get is, can I get it too in beez bhandar.
7) I have only two or three types of plants now, Amazon sword, sajateria ( grass like plant) , I'll go to Kolkata for more.


I'm trying to send pictures of tanks , lights, npk, plant but I'm unable to upload pic through Tapatalk.

But first tell me what is laterite and rexolin?

Excellent thread Sanam. So well documented. Amazing that you got such good growth with DIY substrate, IPF, and DIY CO2. You definitely have green fingers! Thanks.

This is awesome brother, I am inspired. From where did you get the lamp lights for nano tanks? I have been looking for these for quite some time.

those lights are in three parts-1) a branded led lamp, 2) a funnel cut and put on the lamp as reflector and food grade aluminium foil was attached to the inner side of funnel, 3) iron wires bent to make the reqd structure to hold and hang the lights... :)

Thanks for your comments.. :)
