 Hi  Abhi,  ADA  amazonia  with  supersand  as  substrate.  ADA  Super  4  added  as  base.
 
 Tank  dimensions  are  40  L  X  30  H  X  22  W  in  CMs.  Wanted  a  NANO  setup  for  now.

 Some  questions,
 
 1.  How  do  you  take  care  of  the  hard  water  scales  that  appear  on  top  portion  of  the  tank?
 
 2.  Should  I  add  a  drift  wood?
 
 3.  I  have  couple  of  snails,  should  I  be  worried  about  them  and  get  assassin  snails?  Any  other  pointers  on  this?
 
 Regards,
 Prem

 I  guess  I  can  take  a  dig  at  this  since  I  went  through  this  myself,  just  recently.
 
 1.  I  use  a  steel-wool  scrubber  (one  used  for  cleaning  utensils)  to  scrub  this  whitish  layer  off  during  every  water  change.  My  tap  TDS  is  around  300,  but  due  to  my  hardscape  and  evaporation,  it  reaches  around  400  ppm  around  the  end  of  week.
 
 2.  If  you're  asking  for  aesthetic  purpose,  you  may  add  some  according  to  your  taste.  If  you  intend  to  soften  your  hard  water,  than  I  think  it  wont  help  since  in  my  experience  driftwood  only  alters  the  pH  to  some  extent  but  never  tds.  Experts  may  please  correct  me  if  wrong.  
 
 3.  Leave  them  as  is  unless  they  are  multiplying  like  crazy  or  uprooting  your  plants  (some  snails  burrow  and  mess  up  the  tiny  foreground/carpet  plants).  If  they  are  too  much  of  a  botheration,  you  may  include  2-3  assassin  snails  for  your  tank  size.

 Thanks  Abhi...
 
 Steel  scrubber  may  scratch  the  glass  in  the  long  run,  I  had  a  previous  tank  which  had  scratches  because  of  this.
 
 So  no  driftwood  for  now,  dont  want  to  trouble  the  fishes  with  already  less  space.
 
 Added  2  assassin  snails,  got  them  now.

 Glass,  not  so  much,  acrylic,  definitely  yes.
 I  usually  scrub  the  edges  very  gently  till  the  scrubbing  gets  "smooth"  and  stop  there,  no  issues  so  far.
 I've  also  read  people  using  razor  blades  to  scratch  off  the  deposits,  so  that's  another  option  for  you.
 Hope  this  helped.

 Abhi,  will  try  the  gentle  scraping  method  this  weekend  with  the  partial  water  change.
 
 Kapil,  not  really  technical  as  I  am  new  to  this,  Rotala,  Hair  grass,  tall  grass,  Anubis,  Valisneria  two  types  etc.  Light  is  11  Watts  and  photo  period  is  around  14  hours  now.  Don't  know  if  that  is  good  too  but  plants  are  still  in  growing  stage.
 
 Experimented  with  backgrounds,  tried  black  and  an  artificial  plant  from  previous  setup.  Which  one  did  you  guys  like?  I  somehow  liked  the  crystal  clear  background  but  added  some  dark  thermocol  in  the  bottom  half  so  half  black  and  clear  on  top.
