Here i post my planted tank details.i always want to grow a bush of plants from very few plants(say 10 plants). hence it takes time to mature this tank.Plus Kolkata is a very humid place.here normal humidity is 80% plus and temperature is over 35 degree Celsius.plus i don't have chiller in my tank.
Before that you can also check my introductory post here:

this tank is not ready yet to take a final photo.it will take 3-4 months more to take a shape.i got small amount of plants and increase number by cuttings.since this is my 1st planted tank so i do some permutation combination with plants.i add 1 power head to combat with algae and make a good flow in tank.
