Project Greenary (my 1st planted tank)


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:
http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...d.php?t=364153

Tank Specifications:


Tank dimension: 24-15-13 (Rimless)

Substrate: ADA Amazonia 1*9 liter,sand bank in foreground

dry layout materials:horn wood,driftwood,ADA ryuoh stone(around 2.5kg)

co2:pressurized with diffuser (3-4 bps)

light: Osram 36W 8000K * 2 pll, osram 24*1 T5HO

photo period:8 hours

filtration: Eheim 2215

fertilizer: K2SO4(lab grade),ADA step2.

plants:
1. Background: didiplis diandra,rotala rotundifolia,rotala indica,rotala sp green,ludwigia aromatica

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.

here you can see some pictures of my tank.

thank you all.

here's few updates of my tank:
1.i love fissidens in my tank.i can't believe that fissidens will grow like that.
2.next come to rotala and didiplis diandra.my tank is not like expert's tank where they can grow plants like crazy.my plants are growing slowly but steadily.
3.few months ago i faced problem due to ph fluctuation.tips of HM melted.now it's fine.i have a lovely lush green HM.
4.got micranthemum umbrosum few days ago,but in seriously bad condition.only stems were there,no leaves.float this plant for 10 days and planted it this sunday.now see some pearling from umbrosum.but i think it will take few days to recover completely.
5.got HC in totally melting condition.seller will resend me.finger crossed.
6..CRS are doing great.but i am not a shrimp expert.finger crossed for them.if everything goes well i'll add few more CRS in October.
