 My  education  in  the  subject  of  planted  aquariums  continue.  Some  of  you  might  might  recall  my  earlier  attempts.  {LKG  Plants  and  UKG  Plants}.  The  transition  from  Kindergarten  to  school  was  painful,  long  drawn  out  and  at  times  even  tearful.
 
 Started  in  Late  January  2010
 The  tank  is  an  18inch  cube  made  of  8mm  glass.  Stand  is  made  of  steel  L  angles.
 Lights  70Watts  Osram  MH  Bulb  in  a  Bajaj  Fitting  {I  think  the  bulb  runs  at  5600K,  cant  recall  now}
 Filter  Aquael  Minikani,  with  small  power  head  for  circulation
 Soil  ADA  Amazonia  II
 Hard  scape  -  Rocks  found  in  the  backyard
 CO2  -  Started  with  pressurized  CO2  and  later  switched  to  Flourish  excel
 Fertilizers  -  K2SO4  at  1/3  to  1/2  the  dose  recommended  by  Chuck's  calculator

 
 
 
 
 Flora
 
 Cyperus  helferi
 Blyxa  japonica
 Byxa  Aubertii
 Staurogyne  Sp
 Didplis  diandra
 Marselia  hirsuita
 there  are  few  strands  of  HC  Cuba  and  Elatine  triandra  somewhere  in  there  along  with  couple  of  clumps  of  Eleocharis  parvula
 
 The  plants  fit  my  prime  requirement  perfectly  -  Low  maintenance.  Even  the  Didplis  needs  trimming  only  once  in  about  two  months.  Quite  a  bit  of  the  stuff  was  acquired  from  an  aquarist  friend  in  small  quantities  and   grown  and  multiplied  in  my  tank.  {Partly  purchased  and  partly  gratis}
 
 
 Fauna
 Trigonostigma  heteromorpha
 Hemigrammus  rhodostomus
 Neocaridina  Heteropoda  -  they  seem  to  be  breeding  regularly,  so  the  tank  must  be  doing  okay
