 Way  to  go  Rocky.  It's  great  to  see  the  tanks  of  KA  members.  Most  of  them  are  student  and  don't  have  access  to  a  camera.  Will  be  waiting  to  see  more  and  more  tanks  through  your  lense.  
 
 Don't  forget  to  click  the  tanks  of  Rana,  Amitava  and  Mithun.

 Tank  belongs  to  Amritaksha  Mondal.  A  student  of  St.  Thomas  Church  School.
 
 Tank  specifications  are  as  follows  :  
 Tank  size  :  33x15x15  inch  
 Filter  :  EHEIM  2213
 Lights  :  2  x  36  watts  PLL
 CO2  :  DIY  
 Substrate  :  Laterite  topped  with  Sand  Gravel  
 Liquid  Fertilizer  :  Microsol  B  &  Macros.
 
 Plant  List  :  
 -  Blyxa  Japonica  
 -  Eleocharis  Parvula  (Dwarf  Hair  Grass)
 -  Glossostigma  Elatinoides

 -  Hemianthus  Micranthemoides
 -  Heterenthra  Zoesterofolia  (Star  Grass)
 
 Fish  List  :

 --
 
 A  note  to  every  one  :  There  are  a  lot  of  people  around  who  says  that  you  can  not  grow  or  its  very  difficult  to  grow  Eleocharis  Parvula  (Dwarf  Hair  Grass)  without  ADA  or  any  other  Branded  Plant  Substrate.
 
 Just  see  the  tank,  the  person  is  growing  the  same  plant  in  LATERITE  &  in  no  time,  it  became  jungle.  He  had  brought  only  a  single  pot  of  Eleocharis  Parvula  &  now  he  is  having  nearly  20-30  pots  to  offer.

 I  agree,  given  such  a  student  friendly  market,  IAH  count  may  just  double  up  in  couple  of  years,  just  because  of  Kolkata.[after  seeing  galif  street  pics]
 But  all  credit  to  them.  Super  going.
 Good  luck  people...

 wonderful  job,  rocky..  hats  off  to  u..  i  really  wonder  how  do  these  guys  from  school  find  so  much  time  to  maintain  these  aquariums  properly..  i  remember  when  i  was  a  kid,  i  had  an  aquarium  and  could  maintain  it  only  for  two  months  or  so..  i  used  to  spend  most  of  my  time  then  playing  cricket  and  roaming  with  friends..   Smile
