 Nice  start  Prem.  Will  keep  watching  the  space  regularly.  Sorry  that  I  could  not  check  the  chiller  information  with  Mohit,  cause  he  went  out  of  station  for  3  weeks.  
 
 How  about  using  a  little  bigger  (taller)  driftwood?

 Hi  Prem,
 
 Looking  forward  to  your  setup.
 
 A  kind  request.  Could  you  also  please  document  your  setup  so  that  it  could  be  useful  for  
 novices  like  me  Smile  
 
 As  always  expectations  are  high  from  you  and  am  sure  we  have  a  stunner  in  the  making  :)
 
 Best  Regards,

 Sourcing  Plants:  This  is  mainly  to  help  the  folks  who  are  looking  out  for  plants  in  Chennai.
 
 Jayaseelan  -  Puducherry
 Southern  India  -  Kolathur
 Sunshine  Aqua  -  Kolathur
 Aquastar  -  Kolathur
 
 I  have  listed  them  by  order  of  cost  and  availability  of  plants.  These  places  are  good  to  buy  plants  for  any  one  who  is  about  to  set  up  a  new  planted  ┬átank  as  they  stock  lot  of  stem  plants  and  are  quiet  affordable  as  well.
 
 For  those  who  wonder  what  type  of  plants  to  start  with  for  a  new  tank,  below  are  some  of  the  commonly  available  plants.  There  might  be  others  as  well  which  can  be  used  for  sure  however  these  are  the  plants  I  have  used  and  found  to  be  successful.
 
 1.  Rotala  Rotundifolia  Green
 2.  Rotala  Rotundifolia  Red
 3.  Hygrophila  Difformis
 4.  Hygrophila  Polysperma
 5.  Hygrophila  corymbosa
 6.  Egeria  Densa
 7.  Egeria  Najas
 8.  Bacopa  Caroliniana
 9.  Bacopa  Monneira
 10.  Ludwiga  Ovalis
 11.  Aponogeton  Crispus
 12.  Aponogeton  
 13.  Sagittaria  Subulata  
 
 To  be  contd...
