 Hi  All,
 
 Am  glad  to  be  part  of  such  a  active  forum   Very Happy   
 
 I  am  from  Bangalore,Pillanna  Garden  area  (Off  Tannery  Road)..  am  very  new  to  this  hobby  but  the  fish  and  those  beautiful  aquariums  always  amused  me..
 have  been  hanging  around  here  for  some  days,  great  enthusiasts  around..  
 my  hobby  started  when  i  acquired  a  aquarium  from  a  cousin  about  a  week  back.  its  about  3.ft  in  length  and  1.8ft  on  height  &  1.5  Width.
 
 As  soon  as  i  got  this  aquarium  me  and  my  son(aged  6,  the  most  excited  one  of  our  new  asset)  hopped  into  a   aqua  shop  near  my  are  i.e,  Tannery  Road  (Bangalore)  Picked  up  stuff  which  we  could  lay  hands  on  and  as  suggested  by  the  shop  guy.
 Pardon  my  ignorance!  i  just  don't  know  the  names  of  the  fishes  or  the  things  in  this  beautiful  hobby..  few  to  name  are  the  Lovely  Neon  Tetras-  5  nos,  4-  angel  fish,  some  pink  zebra  kind  of  fish-  6nos)  2-eel  kind  of  fish  which  always  seem  to  be  on  the  gravel  than  swim  around.
 Picked  up  few  aqua  plants,  a  air  filter  and  a  bio  sponge  along  with  some  gold-brownish  gravel  and  some  rocks.
 am  not  happy  with  the  set-up  i  have,  seen  lot  of  beautiful  aquascapes  in  here,  Especially  one  done  by  Shelly  Aka  JosyJames..  loved  his  work  and  his  DIY  everything..
 
 attached  is  the  pic  of  my  set  up  on  the  day  one  sorry  for  the  low  pic  quality  and  the  unclean  glass..
 
 would  love  to  add  a  carpet  and  have  less  fishes  would  love  community  fishes  thou..
 
 Your  opinions  and  suggestions  are  greatly  appreciated..
 
 Thanks  for  making  me  part  of  this  forum.  
 
 
 Kind  Regards,  
 
 Alsan

 Welcome  to  the  hobby  Very Happy  
 The  pink  zebra  kind  of  fish  are  called  zebra  danios.  
 You  need  more  plants!  Put  fast  growers  like  cabomba  (I  think  you've  already  placed  it)  and  foxtail.  
 Also  introduce  some  assassin  snails.  And  I  think  the  bottom  dwelling  fish  is  a  loach.  Put  a  pic  of  it.  Smile
 And  for  carpetting  why  Not  experimenting  with  a  moss  carpet?

 Welcome  to  IAH  Smile  
 
 Don't  worry  about  your  tank  setup  .  Slowly  you  will  come  to  know  all  .  
 As  navneethtk  suggested  ,  you  can  plant  some  more  plants  like  amazon  sword  ,  Cobamba  ,  foxtail  ..etc.  which  you  can  easily  get  from  LFS(local  fish  shop)  or  you  can  get  it  from  any  hobbyist  .  
 
 Please  try  to  attend  our  ASK  meet  at  cubbon  park(Sunday  ,  11AM  -1PM,  near  Govt.  Aquarium  )  .  I  am  sure  you  will  get  lots  of  suggestion  and  information  about  you  tank.
 
 Thanks,
 Satya

 Hey,  who  said  that..  CO2  is  not  a  must,  especially  with  your  kind  of  setup.  keep  it  simple,  just  get  some  more  plants.
 By  the  way,  You  have  not  mentioned  about  your  lighting..  tell  us  about  your  wattage  and  kind  of  lights  used..
