 I  believe  that  you  dose  and  do  too  many  things  to  your  tanks....that  is  creating  a  problem  of  algae...but  that's  my  opinion.

 Deb,
 U  r  absolutely  right  about  the  'too  many   things'   Smile  .  But  learning  to  be  patient  now   Smile  .  Will  hardly  dose  now  (infact,  no  dosing  last  10  days  has  been  good---almost  no  algae  Smile  ).  Its  that  resolve  I  need  to  maintain  when  I  come  back  Chuckle  .  Cpuld  never  find  the  reasons  for  algae  earlier  (nop  algae  now).

 I  dose  max  6-7  times  in  a  month.  Algae  is  there  but  negligible.  But  that  is  my  water  parameters.  You  have  a  very  nice  tank  with  very  nice  potential,  so  I  wanted  to  point  it  out.  Hope  you  did  not  mind  me  saying  that.

 Not  at  all.  Know  that  myself  too  and  happy  to  learn  and  i  am  learning  (Tirtha  helps  me  a  lot  to  keep  my  experiments  under  wrap  Smile  ).  So  really  welcome  suggestions  and  criticisms.

 Do  not  blame  the  algae.  Those  are  innocent.  They  just  living  there  as  he  is  providing  a  good  home.
 
 He  is  not  running  CO2  regularly,  only  running  the  CO2  when  he  feels  like.  He  is  not  following  dosing  pattern  and  ratio.  You  will  find  all  kind  of  Chinese,  japanese,  malayasian,  europian  plant  food  (I  am  not  going  to  call  them  fertz)  which  are  available  in  NCR  region,  at  his  place.  Even  God  can't  say  what  are  those  bottles  are  having  inside.  You  tell  him  to  use  Lab  Grade  Chemicals  as  ferts,  he  will  show  you  some  Red/Green/Blue  powders.  
 
 Plants  are  really  faithful  to  their  owner  so  they  are  still  growing  good.   But  yes,  sipping  chilled  beer  or  Wine  with  cheese,  sitting  at  a  low  divan  surrounded  by  planted  tanks  at  his  reading  room  is  really  an  experience.  
 
 @Bappa  Da:  Hope  you  will  not  kill  me  for  this  post.

 Tirtha,
 
 Just   building  up  a  plethora  of  knowledge  about  'what  not  to  do  in  a  planted  aquarium'.
 
 And  by  the  way,  look  who  is  talking---one  whose  fresh  water  planted  tank  has  marine  features.  The  algae  there  is  more  like  zoanthids  Chuckle   Rock On  ---grey  on  Monday,  black  on  Wednesday  and  red  during  the  weekends  (after  heavy  anti  algae  dosing  in  Friday).  And  these  days,  the  very  lttle  algae  I  have  in  my  tank  has   nice  dense  green  moss  type  looks   Very Happy   Very Happy  .,
 
 But  seriously,  after  going  easy  on  dosing  and  keeping  the  tank  on  electronic  CO2  unit,  the  results  are  much  better,  Come  to  check  for  yourself  this  weekend,   Smile   Smile

 Hi  all,
 HAd  to  travel  for  7  weeks.  Did  try  to  keep  most  things  automated  (means  asked  people  vack  home  to  timely  feed,  clean,  pour  water  etc   Chuckle   Chuckle  ...and  did  pestered  Tirtha  at  times  to  'just  check'  too).  Finally,  came  back  last  week  and  found  that  the  tank  perhaps  looked  better  than  I  left  it  Chuckle  !  Now  I  am  convinced  that  the  hypothesis  that  'I  do  too  many  experiments'  is  true  Very Happy  !  All   that  was  done  in  my  absence  was  just  replenish  the  evaporated  water  (I  would  guess  that  it  would  be  arond  3-4%  of  the  volume  every  day).....
 
 The  CO2  was  running  with  the  electronic  unit.  Lights--not  more  than  5  hours  a  day.  Temperature  between  25-27  degrees  I  guess.
 
 Here  are  the  pics:
 This  is  how  I  left  the  tank  around  28th  April  when  I  left.  (I  had  removed  the  Moss  fearing  that  high  temperature  would  kill  it)
 
 [img][/img]
 
 This  is  how  I  found  it  on  returning  (15th  June):
 
 [img][/img]
 
 And  this  is  how  it  looks  now  after  a  trimming  (of  Ambulia  at  the  back  and  HM  in  the  front):
 [img][/img]
 
 
 
 The  fishes  are  doing  fine----about  20  odd  Neons,  3  cardinals,  3  rasboras,  2  Ottos  and  a  Black  Molly!
 
 Time  now  to  start  a  new  project  Smile   Smile

 Last  few  weeks  have  been  hectic  which  meant  a  gross  negligence  of  the  tanks.  Paid  the  price,  when  i  relized  the  HMs  had  all  melted  away.
 Here  is  how  the  two  tanks  look...
 
 Tank  1:  Planted...
 img][/img]
 
 The  fishes  are  fine.  The  CO2  is  still  through  Electronic  Carbon  Unit.  
 
 And  this  is  the  tank  that  houses  the  kribs
 
 [img][/img]
 
 This  tank   is  real  low  maintanance----
