 Hi  All,
           I  am  setting  up  a  new  aquarium.  I  have  had  aquaruim  before  and  used  to  think  that  aquarium  keeping  is  just  pouring  water  and  introducing  a  bunch  of  colorful  fishes.  But  now  I  have  learnt  a  lot  and  want  to  set  up  a  good  aquarium.  Right  now  I  have  a  tank  of  size  4ft  X  13  X  15.  Now  I  am  planning  to  added  water  and  buy  a  good  water  conditioner  (waterlife's  water  conditioner)  which  removes  chlorine  and  binds  heavy  metals  etc  etc.  Now  my  doubt  is
 
 1.  Can  I  fill  the  tank  with  tap  water  first  and  add  the  water  conditioner  in  the  tank  water?  or  should  I  have  to  put  the  water  conditioner  in  the  water  kept  in  a  big  bucket  and  then  pour  the  water  after  sometime  in  the  tank?
 
 2.  I  am  planning  to  put  gravel  and  keep  lot  of  plants?  Some  one  please  suggest  some  good  plants.  I  am  planning  to  keep  star  grass  and  few  other.  Will  the  water  conditioner  affect  the  plants?  Should  I  have  to  wait  for  sometime  after  keeping  the  plants  inside  the  tanks  to  introduce  fishes?  Any  suggestions  on  medicines  for  the  plants  to  grow  faster?
 
 3.  I  am  planning  to  keep  the  following  fishes.  Please  suggest  me  if  anything  wrong  in  the  combination  of  fishes.  I  want  it  to  be  a  community  tank.
 1.  School  of  clown  louches  (3  pairs)
 2.  School  of  tiger  barb  (3  pairs,  small  size)
 3.  School  of  tetras  (3  pairs,  small  size)
 4.  Few  sharks  (small  size)
 5.  Prawns  (3  pairs)
 6.  Snails  (3)
 
 I  somebody  can  suggest  me  a  good  combination  or  some  fascinating  fishes  it  will  be  helpful.
 
 4.  Can  I  have  black  ghost  along  with  these  fishes.  I  found  it  beautiful  and  fascinating  but  not  sure  whether  I  can  keep  it  with  other  fishes.
 
 5.  What  kind  of  filter  is  need  for  the  tank  of  this  size?  Should  I  have  to  buy  a  powerful  filter  or  a  medium  one  is  enough.  I  dont  mind  buying  powerful  own  but  it  should  not  uproot  the  plants.
 
 6.  I  read  that  almond  leaves  are  good  for  aquarium.  Should  I  have  to  put  dried  leaves  or  fresh  ones.  If  dried  is  there  any  special  way  to  dry  it  or  just  put  them  under  sun  or  just  keep  them  in  a  shelf  or  stand  below  the  trank  and  once  it  is  dry  use  it?
 
 Thanks,
 Mohan.

 Welcome  to  IAH...  Very Happy  
 
 1.  Fill  water  and  put  the  conditioner...
 2.  Read  more  on  Planted  Tanks  here  in  the  forum  and  then  decide
 3.  If  you  plan  to  keep  Tetras,  keep  only  Tetra...Read  the  "Self  Introduction"  posting  to  find  a  right  combination  for  you...
 4.  Same  as  above...search  'Feather  Fin'
 5.  Read  the  Article  on  'Almond  Leaves'...
 
 HTH,
 Enjoy...  Very Happy  
 Bye,
