 Hi  All
 
 When  finally  after  8  months  have  manges  to  set  up  the  4  ft  aquarium  in  my  room.  This  was  long  over  due.  The  tanks  specs  are  as  follows
 
   1.  Tank  Size  :  48"  X  24"  X  24"  (inches)
 2.  Volume  :  450  Lts  (120  gal  u.s)
 3.  Filtration:  Ehiem  2217  with  ADA  lily  pipes
 4.  Filter  Media:  Creamic  rings,  ADA  Biorio  3  lts,  ADA  Bamboo  charcoal
 5.  Light  Fixture:  AquaMechanics  Lifestyle  Pro  (6  x54W  T5HOs)  (  8000k,65000k,4000k)
 6.  CO2  System:  Pressurized  with  solenoid,  Jabeno  CO2  external  Reactor
       7.  Substarte  :  ADA  Aquasoil  Amazonia  2,Powersand  special  medium,  PenacP,  Penac  W,  Bacter100,  Tourmaline  BC,  Clear  super
 7.  Flora:  Eleocharis  parvula,  Staurogyne  sp.,  Pogostemon  helferi,  Blyxa  japonica,  Cryptocoryne  wendtii  'Mi  Oya',  Cryptocoryne  wendtii  'Tropica'
                                    Microsorum  pteropus  'Narrow',  Microsorum  pteropus  'Philippine'  ,  Anubias  barteri  var.  nana"petite",  Crinum  calamistratum,
                                    Rotala  Rotundifolia  "  Red",  Rotala  rotundifolia  "green",  Rotala  Wallichi,  Rotala  Najean  ,  Rotala  Macarandra,

 Hardscape:  ADA  white  wood                           
 
 This  is  not  the  final  plant  list,  some  of  the  plants  are  going  to  take  a  little  longer  to  procure,  hence  using  some  plants  as  fillers  for  now.  The  concentration  was  also  to  get  everything  well  organised  as  this  was  a  permanent  setup  I  was  looking  at...Just  attaching  pics  of  all  the  backhand  work  done.Will  be  posting  pectoral  guide  of  the  setup  soon..

 Bhai....  did  you  get  a  lottery  by  any  chance??   Drinking  
 
 Will  wait  to  see  a  close  up  picture  of  the  light  fixture  (Inside  and  outside  view).
 
 A  question.  If  you  are  using  Power  Sand  Special,  why  you  need  other  substrate  additives?

 Hi  tirtha  
 
 No  such  Luck...  Chuckle   Chuckle   I  Know  its  set  me  back  a  bit,  but  since  this  was  something  I  really  wanted  to  do  well  decided  to  go  with  the  best  available.  Attaching  th  epicture  of  the  light  set  for  you,  the  inside  is  a  bit  difficult  to  get  will  post  that  later.  BTW  the  Fixture  is  only  35mm  in  height.  I  think  one  of  the  sleekest  ones  in  the  market.
 The  Additives  are  used  for  creating  a  good  substrate  environment.  Like  Tourmaline  BC,  Clear  super  and  Penac  W.  Penac  P  is  to  help  the  root  system  of  the  plants.  Also  in  combination  these  additives  prevent  the  sustrate  from  becoming  Anaerobic,  and  keeps  general  plant  health  good.
