 Hi,  I've  started  a  planted  tank  almost  2  months  ago.  This  is  my  first  attempt  on  planted,  gradually  learning,  so  advice  is  needed  eagerly.Due  to  space  prob  it  is  a  triangular  shaped  tank.  
 
 
 Tank  dimension:  It's  a  triangle  shaped  one(I'm  a  student  of  pure  maths  and  doing  my  research  work  on  geometry,  may  be  that  had  affected  the  tank  Very Happy  ),  the  perpendicular  sides  r  2'  each,  the  height  being  15".
 
 Substrate:  I've  used  laterite  topped  with  river  sand  both  collected  and  carried  on  my  neck  from  Burdwan.
 
 Co2:  Diy  yeast  sugar  method.
 
 Light:  36wt  philips  pll  with  reflector.
 
 Flora:  red  lily,  bacopa(dont  know  which  species),  tennulus,  spiral  val,  hm,  rotala,  needle  leaf  java  fern,  anubias  petite,  najas  indica,  hygrophilla  difformis,  polysperma  and  corrymbosa,  another  one  is  there,dont  know  the  species  name,  rubber  amazon.
 
 Fauna:  black  molly-1,dario  dario-10,hockeystick  tetra-2,rainbow  shrimp-ccant  count.  
 
 
 
 
 Check  out  the  photos:
 
 
 "2  tanks,  the  2nd  one  will  soon  be  converted  into  a  planetd  one  as  well"
 
 
 
 "having  only  bacopa,  land  form,  spiral  val  and  4  red  lily  bulb  at  the  first  day"
 
 
 
 "after  a  week  or  so,  collecting  some  plants  from  fellow  hobbyists  of  KAC,  the  2  mollys  r  initially  there  for  cycling  purpose,  one  of  them  is  still  in  the  tank  for  algae  cleaning  purpose"
 
 
 
 "after  another  week  plants  r  really  in  a  good  condition,  bacopa  leaves  r  transforming"
 
 
 
 "E.  Tennulus,  got  some  cutting  from  Mithunda"
 
 
 
 
 
 "these  lilys  r  growing  like  mad  in  my  tank,  this  pix  is  taken  after  1  week  of  plantation,  people  told  me  because  there  is  lil  plants  in  the  tank,lilys  got  good  nutrients,  that's  why  this  rapid  growth,  but  I'm  bored  of  them  now"
 
 
 
 
 
 "taken  just  today"
 
 
 
 "new  addition,  10  dario  dario,  gorgeous  lil  creatures,  added  last  sunday,  already  in  love  with  them,  but  nothing  they  have  eaten  till  now,  tried  TB,frozen  Blood  worms,frozen  tubifex  worms,spirulina  flakes  and  today  evening  live  tubifex  worms..will  bring  daphnia  this  sunday"
 
 
 
 
 
 "penguin/hockeystick  tetra  livin  peacefully  with  my  dario  darlings  Very Happy  "
 
 
 
 "java  and  lil  flame  moss  being  tied  to  a  driftwood  few  days  ago,  due  to  temp  I  think,  not  showing  any  growth  yet..my  tank  temp  varies  from  29-30,  I  use  ice  pack  thrice  a  day"
 
 
 
 "the  driftwood  is  not  of  very  good  quality,  but  it's  working  for  now"
 
 
 "needle  leaf  java  fern,  got  it  from  T2da  on  28th  Smile"
 
 
 
 "OMG,  I  forget  my  little  inverts,  there  r  lot  of  rainbow  shrimp  and  shrimplets,  they  r  doing  fine  from  the  first  day"
 
 
 
 "And  I  forget  to  tell  u  I'm  a  born  photogrpaher  Cheering  "
 
 Will  keep  u  updated  guys.  Now  it's  your  turn  to  provide  some  suggestion  on  how  to  make  it  beeter.
 Thanks  in  advance.
 
 -AVIK

 Favulous  photography  Avik(I  think  so).
 The  dario  darios  look  too  good  in  planted  tank.
 One  little  advice  from  this  newbie,you  can  look  for  cpu  fans  for  the  temp.  out  there  in  West  Bengal  is  too  high  for  your  mosses.That  too  flame  moss,even  more  fragile  than  java  moss  and  grows  at  a  slower  rate.Or  if  you  can  get  hold  of  a  4"rotary  ac  fan.It  costs  sround  220/-  and  really  it  will  bring  down  the  temp.  by  2  to  3  degree  centigrade.Ofcourse  I  am  just  a  newbie  You  better  ask  Tirthada  or  Shameekda.They  are  far  better  in  this  arena.On  equerry  ,are  those  mosses  cuttings  from  Shameekda?
 But  I  must  say  you  have  an  impressive  beginner's  tank.

 You  got  a  nice  growth.  Will  look  forward  to  see  the  evolution  of  your  first  planted  tank.  But  Darios  are  looking  thinner.  Try  to  get  them  feed  whatever  they  like.

 They  will  not  grow  so  fast  in  the  higher  temp.Even  in  my  tank  the  growth  rate  become  very  slow
 
 Love  to  see  the  Darios  playing  in  the  tank  Very Happy

 Thank  u  guys.
 
 @natbox,
            the  light  is  2-3"  above  the  water  level,  lie  parallel  to  the  hypoteneous,  I'll  add  more  light,  waiting  for  the  summer  heat  to  go  down.
 
 
 
 @maximus,
             It's  too  hot  here  for  me  to  go  out  to  buy  the  fan  Smile  ,although  planned  of  installing  a  3"  ac  fan.  Btw,  what  is  rotary  fan?

 Dear  Avik,
 In  my  post  of  "Journey  to  the  planted  world"  I  have  posted  the  picture  of  my  rotary  ac  fan.Any  ac  fan  will  do.Go  and  get  it  soon.Then  your  tank  will  look  even  better  .
