 Hi  
 
 As  mentioned  doing  water  change  everyday  is  great  but  you  will  surely  start  bored  after  a  long  time.  I  have  seen  the  post  and  there  are  some  filters  that  have  been  recommended  Since  i  dont  have  a  nano  ,  i  havent  had  much  experirnce  on  that.  as  far  as  fertiliers  are  concerned  there  are  ready  made  fertilizers  in  the  market  they  hover  from  300-500  (  i  hope  thus  is  allowed  )  for  a  1/2  litre  bottle.  these  are  mostly  imported  ,  the  recommendded  dose  varies  from  5-10  ml  for  100  litres  so  in  your  case  it  will  last  you  a  while.
 
 Otherwise  you  can  go  in  for  the  EI  method  on  dosing  ,  there  is  a  great  post  by  madan  in  the  forum  search  for  it  (  under  water  chemistry  )  and  you  will  get  it.  that  process  is  very  tedious  and  i  think  works  well  for  a  larger  tank  as  you  will  still  gte  away  with  mistakes.  In  a  small  tank  overdosing  can  create  algae  problems..  hence  its  better  to  investigate  and  learn  
 
 Also  please  dont  only  look  at  your  posts  and  wait  for  people  to  reply  ,  if  yoy  search  a  bit  in  the  forum  you  wil  realise  that  many  problems  that  you  face  have  been  faced  in  the  past  by  someone  else  and  search  itself  will  get  u  results  ...  
 
 hope  this  helps.

This  tank  cannot  support  anything  else.                

 what  did  u  mean  by  this???                

 Every  tank  has  a  capacity  to  support  life,  plans  are  also  living  things  therefore  they  are  require  resources.
 Plants  need  Co2,  nutrients  &  light  to  live.
 Co2  is  obtained  from  fish  respriation  &  water  changes,  as  you  have  only  one  fish  not  enough  Co2  will  be  available  so  all  Co2  will  be  available  from  w/c.
 Nutrients  are  available  from  fish  poo  &  water  changes,  as  there  is  only  one  fish  not  enough  fish  waste  will  be  generated,  and  nutreients  will  be  a  limiting  factor,  you  can  fertilize  artificially  but  it  is  not  adviced  in  a  tank  of  this  size  as  it  will  create  imblance  and  cause  algae.
 Light  you  have  a  combination  of  cabmoba  &  anubias,  former  loves  high  lights  and  is  very  fast  growing  while  latter  is  low  light  plant  and  is  slow  growing.
 The  echinodorous  are  extensive  root  feeders,  if  you  take  them  out  after  some  time  you  will  see  a  large  tangle  of  root  hairs,  they  will  deplete  your  substrate  very  soon,  their  leaves  are  dying  because  when  placed  in  a  new  root  they  occasionally  loose  old  leaves  and  youg  leaves  will  come  out  after  some  time.
 So  my  suggestion  would  be  decease  no  of  plants  and  take  out  large  leave  plants  like  anubias  and  java  fern,  replace  them  with  moss,  even  pygmy  swords  will  become  very  large  in  this  setup.
 You  need  to  have  a  balance  of  both  plant  and  fishes  in  your  aquarium.
