 Yes....  right.....  a  planted  tank  is  an  underwater  garden,  if  the  plants  are  well  placed  and  colourful.  
 
 Other  than  that,  its  an  art  of  bringing  home  natural  scene  of  a  fresh  water  "under  water  scape".  A  jungle  at  Home.
 
 A  planted  tank  is  a  world  in  itself,  with  fishes,  living,  breeding  dieing  and  taking  rebirth.  Even  plants,  they  grow,  get  trimmed,  again  get  replanted.
 
 It  is  a  philosophy  of  poor  man  who  can  not  go  to  the  wilds  and  see  the  natural  scenary  and  can  enjoy  it  at  home  in  a  small  piece  of  glass  structure.
 
 A  planted  tank  is  reviving  our  school  chemistry,  a  challenge  after  30  yrs  to  maintain  the  scape  keep  it  intact.  Going  back  to  what  we  had  just  mugged-up  to  pass  a  90%  result  to  go  further  in  studies.
 
 It  brings  back  our  knowledge  and  puts  it  to  work,  which  we  have  otherwise  just  obtained  for  something  else  in  life.
 
 Its  a  world  apart  from  world,  it  gives  us  universal  peace  of  mind  in  the  morning  and  night.  It  gives  calmness  to  a  disturbed  mind  and  gives  hope  to  make  it  more  beautiful...
 
 Thats  a  planted  fish  tank  Smile  
 
 I  believe  its  that

 To  me  its  growing  aquatic  plants  in  a  tank.  We  use  driftwoods  and  stones  in  the  planted  tank  to  make  it  look  like  what  we  find  in  nature...
 
 Its  like  mimicking  the  nature  and  growing  aquatic  plants  in  a  tank  at  home..

 A  tank  is  "Planted  tank"  only  when  the  basic  requirements  of  plants  are  taken  care  by  the  author.  
 A  link  we  must  read  when  we  start  a  planted  tank  http://www.tfhmagazine.com/details/articles/setting-up-a-successful-lowtech-planted-tank-like-a-pro-part-1-the-basics-full-article.htm
 
 We  do  mistake  and  learn,  but  basic  cant  be  altered  even  for  the  first  timer.

 A  tank  which  can  sustain  plant  growth  with  or  without  external  dosing  can  be  classified  into  planted  tank.
 
 A  tank  with  plants  but  not  able  to  sustain  them  for  a  period  of  time  may  not  be  called  a  planted  tank.

 Its  not  that  Abhis  does  not  know  what  a  planted  tank  is.  He  had  kept  some  beautiful  and  successful  planted  tank  over  years.  Here  the  point  is  that  Abhis  wanted  to  clarify  how  a  tank  can  be  called  as  planted  tank.
 
 Can  a  tank  with  just  some  stones  and  some  plants  could  be  called  as  a  planted  tank?
 
 Its  not  mandatory  that  a  tank  needs  to  have  a  substrate/CO2/fertilizer  dosing/good  lighting  to  be  called  as  planted  tank.  There  are  bare-bottom  tanks  with  just  driftwoods,  ferns,  anubias  etc  but  well  arranged  and  keeping  all  the  aspects  of  a  planted  tank  and  then  we  can  call  the  tank  as  a  planted  tank.
 
 Also  you  can  see  some  tanks  where  the  plants  are  just  dumped  and  called  as  planted  tank.
 
 I  feel  that  this  topic  is  just  like  debating  on  what  a  planted  tank  is  and  how  a  tank  could  be  rated  as  a  well  maintained  planted  tank...
 
 Hope  I  made  it  clear  Abhis..

 Simply  I  could  see  that  after  spending  so  much  time  in  this  hobby  and  forum  people  have  such  misconception  and  even  those  are  newly  learning  are  guided  wrong.  Shelly  has  said  almost  all  what  you  need  to  call  as  a  planted  tank,  ideal  condition  is  require  to  call  it  planted  tank.  The  article  what  I  have  shared  also  said  what  are  the  ideal  conditions  for  a  planted  tank.  Soe  might  be  too  much  technical.
 
 Some  plants  kept  tied  with  stones  in  LFS  for  selling,  do  you  like  to  call  them  "planted  tank"?  they  may  stay  for  a  month  if  not  sold...and  will  grow  without  any  effort,  still  the  question  remains  same...
 
 Please  dont  conclude  so  quickly.
