Hi I'm Hari form India.

I started my first planted tank on 28th of Feb2008.

Tank details:
dimension: L50"xB18"xH24".
light: 4x54W t5HOs . 10 hrs/day
filter: 1x dolphin 1100l/h external canister + 1x1500l/h internal power filter
flora: Tried a lot of them.
fauna: mostly rainbows, tetras, cories and discus.
dosing: macros- pmdd after water change
micros:- everyday after lights off
Co2: pressurized with a dynamax diffuser.
substrate: laterite topped with white sand
decorations: rocks + dirft wood

here is the picture of my first setup


unfortunately all my fishes dies on 11th of nov2008 due to a co2 needle valve malfunction.

later I have redone the tank and here is the picture. as on jan4th 2009



later due to a leak in the tank, I had to tear down this setup and redo the entire thing agin.

this time i have added more woods and rocks and less plants.

this is how it looks like now.





now i have a small attack of bba. trying to fight back with more co2 and proper dosing.

please give your comments and suggestions.

regards
Hari

The new look of the tank looks great! Admittedly, what you had before looked great too but sometimes those disasters are good because they force us to try something new. Good luck with the BBA, it seems like I'm almost always dealing with it. :)

Thanks for all the feedback..

as I mentioned earlier I have some BBA thriving in the tank. I searched for some glutaraldehyde based products for fighting the same. I didn't find any but instead i found a product called "AZOO BRUSH ALGAE KILLER".

they claims that it can kill BBA without affecting fishes and plants.

Does anyone here have experience with this product?

Expecting some feedback on the same..

regards
Hari

You can get Seacham's Excel if you can. It's a commercial carbon supplement that has the same properties as glutaraldehyde.
