 Hello  Everyone!!!
 
 This  is  Srikantan  from  Bangalore.  This  is  my  first  post  on  the  site.  I  have  been  in  the  hobby  for  less  than  two  years  now;  already  showing  symptoms  of  Multiple  Tank  Syndrome   Shocked  .  I  have  recently  set  up  my  second  tank  and  the  details  of  which  is  what  I  wanted  to  share  with  the  members  on  this  forum.  The  tank  is  about  two  months  old.  The  tank  specs  are  as  follows:  
 
 Tank  Size:  4  ft  by  2  ft  by  2ft  (Open  Tank,  In  the  process  of  creating  some  sort  of  a  hood/  cover)
 
 Substrate:  ADA  Amazonia  II,  and  River  Gravel  (Splitscape)
 
 Lighting:  MH  150  W  x  2  (Approximately  12  hours  a  day,  with  a  2  hour  break  from  11:00  AM  to  1:  00  PM)
 
 Filtration:  EHEIM  2217  Classic  
 
 CO2:  Pressurised  (w/o  solenoid  valve)  3  bubbles  per  second,  ceramic  dispenser
 
 Hard  scape:  A  Few  Rocks  and  a  piece  of  wild  drift  wood  (which  has  to  be  removed  sooner,  rather  than  later)
 
 FLORA:
 
 Glossostigma  elatinoides  (Only  on  the  Amazonia  Area)  
 Stargrass  (Heteranthera  zosterifolia)
 Rice  Paddy  Herb  (Limnophila  aromatica)
 Water  Trumpet  (Cryptocoryne  wendtii  ''brown'')
 Common  Giant  Mint  (Hygrophila  Corymbosa  Stricta)
 Pennywort  (Hydrocotyle  –  not  sure  of  the  exact  variety)
 Blyxa  Japonica  (in  a  state  of  suspended  animation,  never  took  off,  has  not  died  yet!!!!)
 One  variety  of  grass  (unidentified)
 A  dying  sprig  of  Tonina  Belem
 
 FAUNA:  
 
 Bosemani  Rainbows  12  Nos
 Neon  Tetra  12  Nos
 Black  Neon  Tetra  8  Nos
 Purple  Emperor  Tetra  6  Nos
 Rummy  Nose  Tetra  16  Nos
 Lambchop  rasbora  (Trigonostigma  espei)  10  Nos
 Cherry  Barbs  8  Nos  (2  are  a  result  of  spawning  that  happened  in  the  tank)
 Otocinclus  3  Nos
 Cherry  Red  Shrimps:  About  30  –  40  of  them  (I  suppose)
 Siamese  Algae  Eater  1  No  (Temporarily  housed  from  my  first  tank)
 
 Some  of  my  tank  pictures  are  attached  below.  I  am  sure  you  will  notice  that  I  am  new  to  photography  as  well.  Please  do  let  me  know  your  comments,  queries  and  suggestions.  
 
 Regards
 
 Srikantan

 Hi  Kshitij,  
 
 Thanks  for  the  appreciation.  I  was  helped  by  Prabhu  Xavier  of  Aquarium  Shop  with  the  initial  planting,  so  part  of  the  appreciation  for  the  scape  is  due  to  him.  
 
 I  haven't  started  dosing  yet,  as  the  plants  seem  to  be  having  a  relatively  healthy  growth  as  of  now.  The  experienced  planted  tank  enthusiasts  that  I  have  spoken  too,  have  advised  me  to  watch  the  glosso  closely  as,  start  dosing  as  and  when  I  start  noticing  a  slow  down/  warning  signs  in  its  growth  patterns.  
 
 Thanks  for  stopping  by  and  commenting.  
 
 Srikantan
