 I  don't  know,  this  is  not  my  tank.  This  tank  belongs  to  Trevor.  He's  slowly  grown  it  over  6  months  or  so.  Careful  setup  and  care  (careless!)  has  brought  up  this  tank.  There  is  hardly  any  algae.  The  glass  has  not  been  cleaned  since  setup  I  think.Chuckle
 
 The  end  result  is  what  matters  to  me,  careful  use  of  plants  depending  on  what  you  can  provide  for  them,  then  with  a  bit  of  intervention  let  nature  take  it's  course.
 
 The  hair  grass  is  not  a  lush  carpet,  it's  there  alive  and  growing  in  between  the  other  plants  and  adds  to  the  overall  effect.
 
 The  fish  and  shrimps  are  really  happy  in  there.  Overall  a  nice  Nano  Tank.
 
 It's  tough  photographing  this  tank,  ambient  light  is  low,  you  need  to  bounce  the  flash  off  the  ceiling,  and  the  ceiling  is  painted  a  cream  color,  that's  why  the  dull  effect.  I  did  not  want  to  play  around  with  white  balance  as  the  picture  looked  almost  like  what  you  see.

 dj_square  nothing  is  growing  in  your  tank.  Everything  is  dying.  The  plants  are  starved  and  are  putting  out  smaller  and  smaller  leaves.
 
 Get  rid  of  the  setup  and  start  over  properly  again.

 DJ  am  not  sure,  what  did  you  mean  by  that,  but  I  will  suggest  you  to  listen,  what  Madan  sir  is  telling.  Cause  if  you  can  follow  the  requirements  and  the  methods  properly,  you  will  be  greeted  with  a  spectacular  nano  at  your  table  top.  Smile
 
 Wanna  see  how  Anubias  Grows  when  You  will  keep  them  properly??  See  my  petites.  I  have  started  with  a  small  cutting  of  7-8  leaves  5  months  before.  And  Now  I  got  this,

 Yes...  I  am  using  CO2  and  Ferts.  I  will  suggest  you  to  go  for  a  new  setup  after  reading  up  different  posts  on  this  forum.  Already  you  had  this  setup  for  last  11  months  and  you  can  now  compare  the  growth  rate  of  your  plants  with  others.  So  try  to  read  up  the  existing  posts,  and  find  out  the  misteks  you  have  done  earlier.  Then  start  the  tank  from  scratch.  We  will  be  here  as  always  to  help  you  out.  Smile

 thanks  a  lot  for  help,
 
 i  guess  the  biggest  mistake  i  have  done  is  that  i  added  that  golden  sand  with  shells  because  of  which  plants  don't  grow  well  intead  i  would  have  added  only  azoo  plant  grower  bed  now  i  have  base  as  azoo  plant  grower  bed  and  top  with  golden  sand  with  shells
 
 i  am  dosing  DIY  co2  and  ferts  from  last  1-2  months  before  there  was  no  co2  or  ferts...
 
 how  are  you  dosing  co2?  and  what  ferts  you  adding?

 Just  plan  properly  and  redo  your  tank.
 
 By  far,  you  are  having  too  much  of  issues  with  your  tank  anyways.

 so  finally  i  did  some  research  on  net  and  i   came  to  know  that  the  bubbles  coming  out  from  the  substrate  are  given-off  by  the  anaerobic  bacteria  living  in  the  substrate  which  are  good  for  keeping  ammonia  and  nitrites  level  down  Very Happy
