 Hey  Guys
 
 With  my  3  Footer  planted  setup  settling  in  well   Very Happy   ,  decided  to  start  a  new  planted  tank.  Open  to  suggestions  on  the  setup.  Sorry  abou  the  bad  pictur  quality.
 
 Tank  Size:  18  (L)*15  (B)*  15  (H)
 
 Hardscape:  Only  Driftwood
 
 Substrate  Planned:  ADA  Amazonia  II
 
 Lighting  Planned:  2  *  18  Watts  6500  K  PLL
 
 CO2  :  Pressurized
 
 Filtration  Planned:  HOB
 
 Plants  Planned:  Moss  &  Anubia  Petite  on  Driftwood,  Still  deciding  between  Glosso  or  Hairgrass  to  cover  the  entire  bottom.

 @  Anand  -  Not  much  progress,  just  picked  up  ADA  Amazonia  II,  ADA  Wood  Tight,  ADA  Moss  Cotton  and  Dolphin  500L/H  HOB  Filter.  Lights  are  still  being  done  hence  the  delay  in  starting  the  setup.
 
 @  Deb  -  I  have  had  good  success  with  Hairgrass  in  close  to  2  Watts/Gallon,  with  36  Watts  on  this  tank  i  would  roughly  get  3  Watts/Gallon  and  adding  good  reflective  sheets  which  will  maximize  the  output,  however  i  am  keeping  an  option  of  adding  another  18  Watts,  so  should  no  be  a  problem.
 
 @  Ravi  -  Thank  You  for  your  comments.
 
 @  Kaushik  -  Thank  you  for  your  comments.  Yes  i  agree  with  you  on  this,  will  be  going  with  Hairgrass.  apart  from  Anubias  will  be  going  in  for  a  lot  of  Narrow  Leaf  Java  Fern.  As  for  the  Fauna  i  already  have  a  dozen  cardinals  and  a  dozen  harlequins  in  my  3  foot  planted  tank  (Link  Below)....so  i  am  looking  at  something  different.  What  i  am  thinking  as  of  now  is  2  Dozen  Amano  Shrimp  (Added  in  after  1  week)  and  12-24  Rummy  Nose  tetras  (After  4  weeks).
 
 http://indianaquariumhobbyist.com/community/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=10079
 
 @  Shameek  -  Thank  You  for  your  comments,  Belive  it  or  not,  found  the  driftwood  (Which  appealed  to  me)  after  a  month  long  hunt   Smile  
 
 Really  trying  my  best  to  make  this  a  master  piece  ......  For  my  standard  atleast   Chuckle   so  not  rushing  things  up   Smile

 Hi  Seetharam,
 I  must  say  your  tank  and  its  specs  are  very  tantalising.  Thumb Up   I  feel  bad  about  not  having  a  planted  tank  (a  proper  one  i  mean).
 
 BTW,  a  bit  off  the  mark  as  it  might  be,  i  think  a  cube  is  a  three  dimensional   object  which  has  equal  edges  .  Your  tank  cuboidal.  Yeah,  it  doesn't  make  much  difference  ,  but  I  like  detailing  you  see...  Smile  
 
 Good  luck!
 
 ...Karthick
