 This  is  my  latest  venture:  Trying  to  set  up  a  planted  tank  with  great  patience!
 
 Tank  size:  30X  15  X  15
 Lights:  2X18  watts  (T5  fresh  water  lamps  from  Arcadia)
                     54  watts  CFL  (Osram)
 Filter:  Eheim  (hanging  filter)
 CO2:  With  diffuser  (2bps)
 Substrate:  Fertil  peat  plates,  Fondo  Vivo,  fine  river  sand
 Bog  wood:  Till  now  one  Mopani  mangrove  root.  Will  put  one  more  rootwood
 Plants:  (Till  now)  Java  Moss,  Hemanthius  Micranthemoides  (I  think),  Bolibitis  Huedelotii,  Lobedia  Cardinalis,  Bacopa,  Hygrohilla  and  couple  of  more  yet  to  identify.
 
 The  tank  is  4  days  old.  Current  inhabitants  –about  20  Neon  Tetras,  4  Glow  light  Tetras  and  5  Ramirezis.  I  will  shift  most  of  the  fishes  tomorrow.  
 
 I  do  think  the  tank  looks  much  better  than  in  the  photos   Smile  .
 
 Now  the  problem:  Today  evening  found  the  first  sign  of  Brown  algae.  Did  30%  water  change.  Now  desperately  need  some  Otos  and  Cherry  Shrimps.
 
 Please  post  your  comments.  Really  want  this  tank  to  stabilize  (had  poor  luck  in  the  past,  mostly  because  I  was  too  impatient  with  the  aquascape  an/or  algae).  But  this  time,  will  be  patient.
 
 Tried  to  upload  the  pics,  but  could  not.  Therefore,  posting  some  links  below.  Enjoy

 Hi  Bappa
 
 Looks  like  a  good  start,  a  few  queries  and  suggestions.
 
 1)  What  is  the  lighting  in  the  tank?  I  may  be  wrong  but  looks  pretty  low  in  the  picture.
 2)  Are  you  planning  to  move  the  fish  out?  If  yes  thats  a  good  idea  as  it  is  too  soon  to  introduce  fish  into  the  tank.
 3)  Suggest  putting  some  plants  in  the  background.
 
 All  the  Best   Thumb Up

 Abhi:  Thanks
 
 Seetha:  The  light  is  90  watts,  which  is  like  3  watts  per  gallon.  The  picture  (pic  2)  was  taken  with  manual  settings  hence  the  dark  appearance.  Actually  the  tank  looks  brighter   Smile  .  Fishes  will  be  removed  today.  Can  you  tell  me  how  many  Neons  can  I  keep  in  it  eventually?  Finally,  about  the  plants---they  are  arriving--lenty  of  them  Very Happy  .  So  hoping  to  post  some  updated  pics  soon

 Hey  Bappa  -  Yes  that  explains  the  light   Smile  
 
 IMO  you  could  keep  about  12-14  if  your  planning  on  having  say  2  Ottos  &  about  a  dozen  Cherry  Shrimps  and  if  only  neons  then  around  16-18.

 Yesterday,  I  trimmed  the  mosses  a  bit  and  added  the  brunchy  driftwood.  I  will  soon  get  some  more  moss  and  cover  the  lastic  threads  that  are  visible  in  the  picture.  Need  you  suggestions.  
 No  new  additions  in  terms  of  flora.  No  dosing  as  yet.
 Fauna:  2  otos  (thats  all  i  could  lay  my  hands  on  Sad  )  and  6  Rosy  barbs  (to  combat  my  hair  algae)
 
 Here  are  the  two  pics
