 Tank  is  running  decent.  Carpet  plant  -  Glosso  -  is  growing  tall  ,  not  exactly  a  carpet.  But  I  am  still  liking  it.  Trimming  it  a  bit  and  replanting,  but  i  am  not  yet  daring  to  cut  it  deep  down.
 
 Latest  update  is  that,  I  changed  the  regulator.  The  chinese  one  started  floating  a  lot.  BPS  would  vary.  It  used  to  stop  the  CO2   completely,  over  few  hours  on  my  setting  of  30bpm  kind  of  setting.  One  of  the  days,  it  had  increased  too  high  gassing  my  few  shrimps  and  neon  tetras.  ┬áThis  is  Yamato  single  stage  double  guage  regulator,  a  needle  valve  and  airmax  solenoid.  Costed  1300+300+700=2300  rupees  from  SJP  road.  Teflon  tape  was  with  e  already.  Also  bought  a  max  23mm  adjusable  spanner  for  this  work.  Regulator  is  working  well  after  plumbing  with  no  leaks.  I  have  only  one  timer  driving  light  and  solenoid.  Will  buy  one  to  start  CO2  before  light  starts  and  switch  it  off  before  lights  are  switched  off.
 
 I  am  enjoying  this  overall.  Due  to  time  constraints  these  days,  I  am  chosing  not  to  wash  my  car  over  tank  maintenance  :)
 
 Thanks  everyone  here  for  all  education  I  am  getting  from.
 
 Below  are  some  pictures.

 Thanks  Ruchit.
 
 Thanks  shri-novice.   I  initially  had  10  Neon  Tetras,  4  Rummy  nose  tetras  and  2  Endlers.   I  lost  3  Neons,  1  Rummy  nose  and  1  endler  during  my  CO2  regulator  malfunction.  I  also  have  15-20  RCS.   I  am  not  that  qualified  to  mention  names  of  plants.  I  am  still  struggling  to  remember  ame  and  face  of  our  IAH  meet  friends  at  times,  I  am  bit  poor  in  that  department  of  remembering  names,  hope  i  will  improve  with  plants.
 
 Janardhanam  sir,  thanks  for  your  kind  words.

 Hi  Shri,  Thanks  for  asking  :)
 
 I  changed  the  driftwood  with  one  I  got  from  Chikmagalur  trip  last  week.  Have  not  taken  any  photograph  yet,  will  post  soon.  
 I  have  had  a  slight  show  up  of  green  hair  algea  and  black  beard.  I  cut  the  plant  leaves  with  black  beard  algae  and  also  removed  the  driftwood  completely  for  getting  moss  cleared  of  it.  But  yup,  i  succmbed  to  the  truth  that,  moss  with  algae  is  a  sacrifice  of  moss.  Reduced  the  lighting  hours  and  green  algae  is  now  reduced.  I  had  clreared  the  walls  and  now  it  is  intact.
 
 I  have  3  rummy  nose  tetra  and  6  neon  tetras  now.  As  i  said  earlier,  lost  1  rummy  nose  and  2  pair  of  neons  due  to  overfeeding  and  floaiting  CO2  regulator  respectively.   Also  I  have  RCS  over  a  dozen.
 
 Is  there  a  chance  I  can  add  few  more  fishes  in  my  25  ltr  ?

 Glosso  that  had  turned  yellow  in  front  during  CO2  outage  (refill  took  too  long  through  a  shop),  did  not  grow  well  back  even  after  2  months.  I  eventually  took  it  out  and  replaced  with  Montecarlo.   2  weeks  of  it,  monte  carlo  grew  tall  and  double.  replanted  the  trims  and  it  is  spreading  okay.  Any  suggestions  further  is  welcome  on  montecarlo  carpeting  and  maintenance.  This  plant  seems  to  be  a  foreground  plant  with  less  demand  overall.

 Thanks  Nidhi,   10  days  back,  I  had  trmmed  Montecarlo  and  replant.  Few  stems,  I  tied  with  a  thread  and  made  a  bunch  and  stuck  on  top  of  the  driftwood  where  there  is  a  nice  deep  groove.  2  days  later  I  saw  the  stems  had  opened  up  spread  nicely  and  was  looking  good.  Surviving  even  now.  Have  not  seen  if  it  grew  roots  where  it  is  kept  on  the  driftwood.  Not  sure  if  this  wil  stay  nice  for  long  but  surely  it  is  fine  in  last  10  days  and  made  me  believe  it  is  a  less  demanding  plant.
