Hi Guys,

CAL Black Earth Premium Soil comes in two varieties one is 3/4 mm granules and the other is in powder form 0.5/1 mm size.

I agree. It becomes much easier to plant delicate small plants precisely that way. Initially I had bought the 4mm Contro soil. I had difficulty in planting some carpet plants. I topped it up with powder and planting became much easier. Also the smaller grain size makes the scale look slightly bigger.

Thanks for your response I have been using Contro Soil but in July, 2017 had difficulty in growing Eleocharis Parvula Japanese (DHG) with high light and CO2, photo period 7 hours.

Prior to this have used AZOO substrate covered with golden sand for my medium light Dutch style planted tank for a long period not sure how many years.


Contro soil is a fantastic soil, no worries with that. Problem must be something else like lights, dosing, water chemistry etc. You need to research a bit. Even I had many plants growing exceedingly well and some species never lasted a even a month in the same conditions.

If the granules are not broken give it another try. You'll save a lot of money.

I don't see any issues as long as the Shrimp colony is well established and they? have a lot of hiding places. I have kept thriving populations of RCS with Cardinals, Espei Rasbora and Rummy nose tetra in a very densly planted tank with flat river pebbles at the bottom.

Please specify your budget for the substrate and which substrate you're using now. Most branded substrates won't loose their qualities in 2 yrs. Maybe you can still use it.

Carpets like Monte Carlo and most red plants need high light to grow to their true potential.

I have used Control soil with fantastic results for the last 4 yrs. It does not break much. I've even shifted my setup once to my new place. I highly recommend this soil. On the budget side river sand may be a good option. You can use ADA power sand as the base for better results. If you have the cash, go for the full fledged ADA substrate and additives.

I'll be happy to help you further if required. I stay at Thane.

I Want to make a 76.2x33x33 cm (20 gallon) iguwami tank with Baby Tears and java moss as carpets and some dwarf hairgrass at the back. I Intend to keep 12 guppies in breeding pairs. Please suggest me equipments that i will need mainly heater, filter, pumps, etc.. I dont exactly like it to be too hi tech or too low tech.. Some middle ground would be nice. Iam not a noob but never attempted a live planted aquascaped tank. Any and all input will be appreciated. Smile Ty

You won't need a heater if the temp is above 22° cooler temp is better for the moss. A small canister filter or even a internal filter should be sufficient. You may try a single Echonodorus Rubin or Rose in the mid ground. You'll require an aerator in the night and co2 during the photo period period. Pay attention to light and substrate along with co2.

I've seen good water conditions clear peppering almost always. Most lfs are not knowledgeable enough to keep discus or are just not careful to maintain good conditions. Also new arrivals in a shop are in constant stress due to high traffic in the shop. Such fish, if not sick, will usually clear completely in good conditions at home. Just make sure you pick healthy fish.

I used them in a 60 cmX30cmX36cm tank with ada amazonia and pressurized co2. Growth was not good with flood lights.[/quote]

How many lumens light did you use and what was the photoperiod. Also the dosing regimen please.

If you mean the flood lights then they are use less. I had them and they do not work well. that is my experience. I had not included any blue or red spectrum LED lights with them.[/quote]

Useless in what sense, please elaborate.
How long did you use them?

I think 2*10w LED would have been a better option. More energy efficient and great visual effect. Also much cooler operations.

Very good attempt. Some of the plants you've chosen will be too large for the height, unless you want to grow them emersed. Also the fish number  seems to be on a higher side. DIY CO2 may not work in long run, consider upgrading to pressurized considering the high light. How old is the setup?
Again,  very good attempt, nice scape. Love it !
