Bhushan  :  Are  we  allowed  to  post  the  picture  sent  to  IAPLC?  or  a  different  set  of  pictures  of  the  same  tank                

 As  per  my  understanding  of  the  IAPLC  rules  the  picture  which  you  submit  to  ADA  for  the  competition  becomes  their  property.  You  cannot  publish  that  picture  anymore.  But  you  can  definitely  post  a  picture  taken  five  minutes  after  the  competition  picture.

 This  set  up  was  started  in  the  last  week  of  September  2008  after  I  took  down  my  previous  set-up  “Boraras  Dream”.  I  used  the  same  ADA  Aquasoil  for  this  set  up  without  taking  it  out  of  the  tank.
 
 
 
 I  know  the  rock  do  not  follow  the  basic  iwagumi/rock  placement  rule.  But  I  added  the  4Th  stone  to  the  set  up  as  the  three  rocks  where  just  not  anchoring  the  placement  for  me.
 
 
 
 I  could  not  find  all  the  plants  I  wanted  for  this  scape  from  the  get  go  so  had  to  start  off  with  what  I  could  find.  This  shot  was  taken  just  after  planting  and  filling  up  the  tank.
   
 
 This  is  how  it  looked  approximately  one  month  from  the  start.
 
 
 
 This  scape  will  change  quiet  a  bit  over  time.  
 
 Let  me  know  what  you  guys  think.
 Thanks
 Bhushan

 Hi  Bushan,
 
 The  first  month  picture  looks  great.  Please  give  us  the  plant  list  at  this  stage  and  also  the  dosing  regimes  that  you  followed.
 
 Maybe  a  stage  wise  detail  would  help  us  a  lot.
 
 
 Thanks  a  lot  for  taking  time  and  putting  these  details  for  us  to  learn.
 Am  a  fan  of  yours   Clapping  
 
 Best  Regards,
 Ravi

 Thanks.  The  light  is  a  24"  65W  fixture.  Yes  the  fore  ground  is  HC.  I  am  putting  in  the  tank  specs  soon.  Other  than  the  substrate  the  only  ADA  products  I  have  used  are  the  fertilizers  and  additives  like  Green  Gain,  Green  Bacter  and  ECA.  You  are  welcome  to  ask  questions.  That  is  why  we  all  are  on  forums.

 Ravi,  thanks  for  all  the  kind  words.  I  use  ADA  Brighty  Series  of  ferts  and  additives  mostly  due  to  the  convenience  of  using  them.  I  do  not  get  enough  time  to  mess  around  with  DIY  ferts.  I  dose  daily  as  needed.  I  start  dosing  Brighty  K  (potassium)  from  day  1  along  with  Step  1(micros  without  iron).  Step  1  is  dosed  approximately  for  first  15-20  days.  Once  the  plants  start  showing  signs  of  iron  deficiency  Step  2  (micros  with  iron)  is  started  along  with  ECA.  I  also  supplement  this  with  Seachem  Iron.N  and  P  are  generally  not  added  when  Aquasoil  is  used.  If  I  use  plants  which  need  a  lot  of  nutrients  like  Riccia  I  dose  Brighty  lLights  which  essentially  contains  N  &  P.  
 I  am  try  my  best  to  do  a  detail  stage  wise  posts  for  this  set  up.
