 Hello
 
 I  am  new  to  planted  aquariums.  I  have  been  raising  fish  for  long  with  plastic  plants.  Recently  i  removed  all  the  plastic  plants  and  started  introducing  live  plants  in  my  aquarium.
 My  aquarium  setup  is  as  follows
 
 Tank  size  :  36"  L,  24"  H,  12"  W
 
 I  have  UGF  which  i  havent  removed  with  chips  as  substrate
 I  have  planted  the  plants  in  this  without  disturbing  my  setup
 
 Lighting  1X20W,1X18W  with  a  top  having  a  reflector.
 
 I  do  water  changes  ones  a  month  about  (60%)
 
 I  have  planted  Cabomba(red)  which  grew  very  fast  after  i  planted(It  reached  the  top  in  one  week.).  But  it  is  not  showing  all  that  red  colour  now  and  that  vigorous  growth  stopped.
 I  have  one  amezone  sword  which  is  growing  very  slow.
 I  have  java  moss  fixed  to  driftwood  which  is  growing  but  it  is  dark  green  in  color.
 I  have  guppy  grass,  which  is  not  growing  but  still  alive
 I  have  one  rotala  green  which  looks  ok
 
 This  low  tech  tank.  Now  i  feel  that  my  tank  needs  to  be  fertilized.
 I  have  been  wondering  where  i  would  get  these  chelated  micro  nutrients,  on  reading  the  posts  in  this  forum  i  could  get  some  idea  about  them.
 Are  these  Vardhaman  fertilizers  availabe  in  Hyderabad?
 
 And  i  need  someone  to  guide  me  on  fertilizing  my  tank.
 
 Any  help  in  this  regard  is  highly  appreciated
 
 Thanks
 
 Krishnam

 If  you  want  to  have  plants  in  this  setup,  you  will  have  to  make  some  changes.
 
 (1)Remove  UGF,  it  is  never  a  good  idea  in  a  planted  tank.  Plants  need  substrate  near  their  roots.  UGF  make  the  substrate  too  aerobic,  which  is  not  good  for  plants.
 (2)  Chips  are  again  not  good  for  planted  tank,  they  make  the  water  hard.
 (3)  Read  more  on  planted  tanks.
 (4)  Your  lights  are  very  low,  plants  will  not  grow  in  this  light.
 (5)  What  growth  you  are  witnessing  is  due  to  nutrients  accumulated  in  plants.  Once  they  are  exhausted,  the  plant  will  suffer.

 Rip  off  everything  and  start  new....  Use  ADA  soil  with  river  sand.  no  ferts  at  all,  go  for  neon  tetras  or  endlers  or  mix  with  large  qty  of  shrimps......  Add  diy  co2  and  a  good  eheim  canister.  lights  go  for  led  flood  lights  as  they  have  been  best  for  me  and  have  been  using  them  since  a  year  now  with  success.
