 I  always  dreamt  of  building  a  beautiful  planted  tank.   I  followed  my  dream  &  hence  started  to  build  a  1.5  ft  tank  high  light  &  pressurized  set  up  4  years  back.  But  to  my  dismay,  the  tank  cracked  &  so  did  my  dream.  I  happened  to  visit  a  fellow  IAHian’s  place  during  the  same  time.  He  had  a  beautiful  Discus  planted  setup  &  I  decided  that  I  will  do  the  same.  However,  I  needed  a  huge  setup  and  huge  discus.  It  was  impossible  as  I  was  unemployed  &  couldn’t  afford  the  same.  However,  there  is  always  another  way.  I  thought  of  raising  a  discus  and  then  make  a  planted  tank.  Hence,  bought  small  discuss  &  it  took  a  year  for  those  small  creatures  to  turn  into  beautiful  elegant  specimens.  It  wasn’t  easy  though  as  it  took  me  many  many  water  changes  to  grow  them  &  all  I  can  say  is  MANY  water  changes.  Believe  me;  it  was  all  worth  it.  Again,  had  a  bad  phase  in  life  &  hence  had  to  hold  on  to  by  hobby  and  sell  everything  I  own.  I  couldn’t  stay  away  from  my  hobby  for  long  as  it  was  hurting  me  deep  inside  my  heart  somewhere.  So,  I  pulled  up  my  socks  &  few  days  back  finally  decided  to  chase  the  dream  I  left  4  years  back.  I  started  working  on  the  logistics.I  had  a  driftwood  collected  during  one  of  the  collection  trips.

   I  visited  Lohar  chawl  last  Saturday  and  bought  3  x  30W  LED  lights.

 The  plan  is  to  build  a  48  x  20  x  24  (L  x  B  x  H)  tank.I  have  ordered  a  metal  stand.  
 
 
 IMG049
 
 Today,  I  would  be  getting  a  customized  switch  board  with  frontier  timers  which  I  have  given  to  an  electrician.  I  am  planning  to  complete  the  tank  stand  with  doors  and  tank  hood  by  next  weekend.  Would  keep  everyone  posted  with  updates  &  pictures  of  course.  So,  watch  this  space  for  more  details  Smile

 Hi  Arvind,
    I  know  how  it  feels,  especially  when  you  are  short  of  money  and  the  burning  desire  of  chasing  your  dreams  is  still  eminent.
 well,  now  that  you  have  started  all  over  again..  best  of  luck,  and  hope  you  never  have  to  quit  again..
 and  one  more  thing,  do  concentrate  on  your  career..  because  only  if  you  earn,  only  then  you  can  sustain  your  hobby.

 Hi,  best  of  luck  with  you  hobby.  One  thing  I  would  suggest  is  adding  an  extra  leg  to  the  two  sides  an  middle  for  extra  support  since  you  tank  is  going  to  be  pretty  heavy  !!  Unless  you  are  building  a  wooden  cabinet  around  it  that  gives  additional  support
