 Hi,
 This  is  a  friends  (Dinesh)  planted  tank  in  Chennai.  Not  as  good  as  his  earlier  setups  but  atleast  I  remembered  to  take  some  photos  this  time  Smile
 He  uses  nothing  fancy,  its  just  laterite+river  sand,  DIY  Co2  and  PMDD  dosing.
 Its  got  some  nice  native  fishes  that  were  collected  by  him  other  than  the  exotics.
 
 
 
 Chanda  ranga
 
 
 
 Laubuca  laubuca
 
 
 Puntius  guganio  or  ambassis?

 Beta,  laterite  and  river  sand  with  PMDD  +  macros  has  served  us  all  very  well.  It's  the  simplest,  cheapest  and  best  combo  in  my  opinion.
 I  am  sometimes  confounded  why  people  have  trouble  with  this  combination.  Short  run,  long  run  whatever  this  works  very  well.
 
 Dinesh's  tank  looks  good  as  always.  He  really  takes  care  of  his  tanks.  Wish  him  the  best  from  me.

 Yes..  Dinesh  has  always  had  Native  fishes  in  his  planted  tank.  I  think  he  started  out  with  Puntius  bimaculatus,  Puntius  narayani,  Devario  malabaricus,  Chanda  ranga  and  Rasbora  daniconius  5-6  years  back.  I  will  see  if  I  have  any  of  the  old  photos.

 My  mistake  for  using  the  term  "New  craze"  Oops  
 
 I  have  heard  about  Mr  Dinesh's  and  his  planted  tanks.  A  real  treat  if  I  could  view  the  old  photos.
 
 Regards,
 Nayak.

 There  are  few  plants  in  most  native  biotopes.  I  recommend  bare  tanks  in  the  interest  of  authenticity  Razz

 I  give  up  !  I  can't  find  pictures  of  Dinesh's  tanks  in  my  hard  drive.
 Trevor  you  must  be  having  a  few  pics  !  or  did  we  visit  Dinesh  before  your  "depressing  finger"  days  ?

 Only  if  you  put  too  many  of  them  in  a  tank  that's  too  small  for  them.

 Nayak:  'New  Craze'  is  correct..just  that  Dinesh  was  keeping  them  for  a  long  time.  
 
 bmukh:  These  Chanda  were  caught  in  freshwater.
 
 Madan:  Does  this  qualify  as  Natives  among  plants.  The  substrate  is  sea  sand  though   Very Happy
