 For  a  nano  tank  you  could  try  anubia  petite,  HC,  marcelia  crenata.  I  guess  marselia  will  look  good  in  your  setup.

 Surya

 @honey_moksh
 
 the  plants  are  always  unavailable  actually  there  is  a  system  that  you  have  to  book  for  the  plants  that  you  need  and  you  have  to  pay  advance
 
 P.S.:-  you  mostly  will  get  only  some  particular  plants  that  too  rarely  so  its  better  to  book  Smile  
 
 @surya_niki
 
 what  is  HC  and  please  can  you  show  me  some  example  of  marcelia  crenata  as  i  searched  on  google  and  some  plant  sites  but  didn't  fet  any  Â Smile
 
 i  can  see  some  brown  thing  on  my  anubias  and  tank  wall  help  me  fight  it...  Crying or Very sad

 Hi  DJ,
 
 You  could  search  for   marselia  crenata  on  aquaspotworld.com  and  the  same  for  H.Cuba.  
 
 The  brown  algae  on  the  tank  can  be  removed  by  sucrubing  the  same  by  old  tooth  brush  or  algae  scrapper  and  you  can  brush  the  anubias  too.
 
 Regards,
 Surya

 can  brown  algae  be  removed  by  varying  the  photo  period?
 something  like  lights  on  for  2  hours,  off  for  1  hr  and  then  on  for  2  hrs  and  so  on  for  the  8-10  hours  of  photo  period

 Here  What  I  understood  is  DJ,  increase  the  lighting  and  not  the  photo  period.
 
 Correct  me  if  I  got  it  wrong.
