hey  guys..
 
 is  co2  setup  must??                

 Hey,  who  said  that..  CO2  is  not  a  must,  especially  with  your  kind  of  setup.  keep  it  simple,  just  get  some  more  plants.
 By  the  way,  You  have  not  mentioned  about  your  lighting..  tell  us  about  your  wattage  and  kind  of  lights  used..                

 
 Err!  sorry  am  not  sure  of  the  specs  of  it..  its  a  philips  2ft  tubelight  tat  i  have  fixed  on  the  canopy..

 A  2  foot  tube  light's  max  rating  would  be  20  watts,  and  you  are  using  only  one..?
 Then  forget  about  growing  plants,  friend..
 Your  tank  needs  at  least  5  more  of  them,  100  watts  of  lights  is  the  minimum  requirement  for  your  tank  size..  Minimum..
 your  plants  are  already  on  death  bed..

 alsan  :  I  haven't   tried  glossostigma.  I  read  it  grows  tall  with  less  light  and  more  compact  with  intense  light.   
 
 Like  Nidhi  mentioned,  you  need  to  provide  details  about   your  lighting.  
 Co2  is  not  essential.  But  it  does  make  a  difference  to  plant  growth.

 For  a  3  feeter,  T5H0  lights  will  be  ideal.  
 Aquazonic  is  one  cheap  fixture  available.  You  may  need  4  light  fixture.  Each  39  watts.  
 This  comes  by  default  with  12000  K  rating.  Since  plants  need  6500-8000  K  rating,  using  the  default  lights  may  cause  algae.

 DRDHEEP:  It  is  time  that  you  start  recogonising  a  Igwami  setup.
 
 Alsan:  it  is  not  a  igwami  set  up  but  it  is  very  nice.
 Good  that  you  are  starting  it  over  but  dont  add  fish  for  a  month.....

 Jabba,
 
 Right  you  are.  This  is  the  problem  today  in  IAH.
 
 Without  knowing  the  subject  people  start  comment.
 
 
 Also  you  can  see  another  thread  today  is  "My  RCS  Tank!!".  And  author  Lugia_111
 also  demanding  that  it  is  his  1st  planted  tank.
 
 I  have  to  know  now  which  or  what  is  planted  tank!!
