 Devanahalli  Magic  is  all  of  the  substrate.  The  entire  laterite  used  is  all  from  Niranjan's  farm  in  Devanahalli.  The  First  pic  topped  off  with  the  third  pic.
 
 I  don't  expect  anything  to  get  into  the  water  column.  I  shall  wait  and  see.  No  risk  no  gain  !
 
 Sandeep  the  rocks  go  in  now,  the  small  pools  of  water  you  see  is  where  the  largest  of  them  will  go  in.  No  point  having  nutrients  where  I  am  not  going  to  plant.

 Supposed  to  be  a  temple  in  there.  Popular  as  a  trekking  destination  and  infested  with  leeches.

 If  I  remember  correctly,  there  is  a  wonderful  small  patch  of  rock  formation  as  you  trek  down  south  of  the  Gokarna.  You  have  to  cross  Kundle,  Om,  and  Half  Moon  beaches  to  get  there.  This  rocky  patch  is  just  before  Paradise  beach.  The  path  along  the  sea  was  bit  scary  at  a  few  places  at  the  time  when  we  went  for  trekking  in  2002.   Am  still  hunting  for  the  better  pictures  that  I  took,  but  here  are  a  couple  of  them  from  the  area.
 
 http://www.flickr.com/photos/9687179@N06/sets/72157617744393148/
 
 This  link  also  gives  the  route  and  a  few  pics

 I  should  have  the  corrected  hood  tomorrow,  then  the  wiring  and  timers  to  set  up.
 
 I  got  this  Solenoid  Valve  for  my  CO2  setup,  Stock  No.163-035,  Model  No.VDW  21-4G-1-01F-Q,  you  can  use  the  other  two  brass  valves  163-075  or  165-003  too
 
 Ordering  is  simple,  but  there  is  a  4  week  lay  time  before  you  get  the  order.
 
 This  is  the  same  company  that  makes  solenoids  for  ADA.

 Fantastic  plan,  Madan.  I  was  waiting  for  to  see  something  so  high  tech  in  India.  As  usual,  you  are  the  first  to  start  of  something  soo  advanced  in  all  respect.     Clapping   Thumb Up  
 
 One  question  though,  Co2  0800  to  1600  Hrs,  why  not  0800  to  1530  Hrs?   Chuckle
