Lovely Pico Sanam. Perfect plants health. But are you planning to keep it through the summer? Maintaining temp of such a small tank would be a challenge.

What an inspiration..Such dedication to transport water from river! Using Ganges water is a very ingenious experiment.I would have thought it would contain more dissolved solutes than tap water but apparently its not so..or may be river water carries high amounts of tannins and acidic minerals which neutralize the hardness.

As for temperature,I have had fine results under 30-31 C with almost all plants I have tried to grow except HC Cuba,UG, and mosses and some delicate stem plants like Heternanthera Zoesterifolia.Most plants do particularly well at 26-28 C such as Rotala species and P.Helferi,Hydrocotyle,Echinodorus etc.CO2,and clean tank with low organics are more important since high temperature interferes in gaseous exchange.With glosso,I grew it in a sandy topped low organic soil substrate..it gave me good results for 2 months,at a temp. of 28C avg,but it deteriorated after that.May be it was because I messed with some parameters.I think if you'd add a fan you can lower the temperature it will be fine,but you will have to change water more regularly due to increased hardness of water since fan will evaporate at a high rate.

I hope you continue this wonderful experiment and dispel more myths regarding plants to ease the maintenance of planted tanks.

actually wen we went on the trip to Purbasthali, we checked the parametrs of the place which used to be a part of the Ganges river..we had kh of & and tds of 150 arnd...we saw lots of plants there along with many shrimps and varieties of fishes...the info smhw came up one fine day again and I headed for Ganges to collect the water. but since the water is murky in general...i use drums to store thm first and thn make use of spare top filters..water becomes clear in 6-8hrs...and thn i use the water...

As an added bonus, i now have lots of wild caught fish fries from the river...while filling up the bottles at the river, fishes r getting captured too...m now thinking to make a Ganges river biotope as it would be quite easy to maintain the water params as I can collect fresh water from the river almost any day... :D
