Don't  worry  about  the  Brown  Algae.  New  Tank  always  have  some  of  them.  Simply  scratch  them  off.  Within  couple  of  days,  Algae  will  go  off.                

 
 oh  ok  will  do  that  and  what  to  do  with  the  algae  on  the  leaves  and  what  to  do  about  the  worms

 -  Pleco,  but  they  grows  upto  12"+  in  size.  Not  suitable  for  your  tank  size.  You  can  keep  the  small  one  but  if  he  grows  up  then  you  have  to  shift  him  in  any  bigger  tank.
 -  Apple  Snail.

Yes!
 
 They  are  good  algae  eaters  but  dont  know  about  if  they  do  eat  planaria  worms  or  not.  As  per  I  know  they  dont  eat.

 Enjoy  your  tank  at  its  current  status.
 Do  not  add  anything  to  it  ,  either  plants  or  fishes.This  tank  cannot  support  anything  else.
 A  betta  of  this  type  will  have  its  fins  torn  by  most  of  the  fishes.
 A  tank  this  new  cannot  have  planria  in  it  ,  they  develope  in  high  organic  remains  over  a  period  of  time.

 Hi  DJ  square
 
 You  have  a  nice  tank.  There  seems  to  be  some  yellow  leaves  whic  are  coming  up,  shows  deficency   ,  i  hope  you  are  using  ferts  atleast  little  
 
 As  far  as  no  Co2  goes  ,  its  great  but  i  guess  its  essential  that  you  have  some  CO2  even  if  it  is  DIY.  Plants  need  Co2  and  today  you  might  be  do  25  %  water  change  every  other  day  but  slowly  your  interest  to  change  water  ill  come  down  (  ask  me  )  
 
 As  far  as  fishes  are  concerned  ,  ottos  ,  you  can  contact  Nautilus  in  bandra  .  They  have  a  good  collection  and  should  find  what  you  need.  They  are  bit  expensive  though  
 
 There  is  another  LFS  in  Bandra  just  opposite  the  cinema  theatre  gaiety  ,  galaxy  ,  aquaria  one  on  SV  road.  You  will  get  some  nice  fishes  ,  ottos  etc  there  .  these  two  seem  to  the  better  LFS  in  Mumbai  for  fishes.  then  there  are  hobbists  like  me  who  will  give  away  plants  when  i  prune  the  tank.
 
 One  small  thing  i  have  learned  is  that  the  tank  takes  a  long  time  to  settle  ,  its  a  lot  of  experimenation  and  hard  work...  but  most  of  all  you  need  to  be  patient.  we  all  so  through  this  its  a  part  of  the  tank  growing  up  
 
 enjoy  the  tank  growing  up  ....  
 
 Thanks  
 Ranjit
