 I  tried  to  setup  a  simple  'easy-to-maintain'  semi  planted  setup  tank  at  my  residence  in  Kolkata.  This  was  in  January  2011.  
 Tank  dimensions:  30(L)  X  14  (W)  X  18  (H).
 Substrate;  Ordinary  sand  although  they  are  far  too  dense  than  usual  sands......I  was  really  struggling  to  'plant'  in  them  
 Light:  2X36  PLL
 Filter:  HOB  (Jebo  I  think)
 Dosing:  Seachem  Carbon  plus  (  5  ml  every  week)  
 Decor:  Driftwoods  and  rocks
   Flora:  Java  Moss,  Cryptocoryene  Wenditii,  Corkscrew  Vallisneria,  Stargrass,  
 Fauna:  Neon  tetras  (20),  Mollies  red  and  black  (4  each).  The  mollies  were  added  after  a  month  and  the  Neons  during  my  last  visit  in  March.  Here  are  the  pics:

 Thanks  Kunal  and  Partha,
 The  tank  is  kept  simple  cause  I  can't  expect  my  dad  to  devote  a  lot  of  time  to  maintain  it!  I  will  call  him  tonight  and  find  out  the  exact  brands  etc  of  carbon  plus  he  is  dosing.
 
 Water  change;  weekly  25%.

 Very  much  goodlooking  tank.  I  have  trying  to  get  this  type  of  a  tank,  but  not  getting.  May  be  the  water  here  is  a  problem.  I  have  also  a  HOB  running,  but  water  is  getting  cloudy,  white.  Did  you  get  this  kind  of  water  while  starting  time?
 Thanks

 Good  one   Thumbs Up  
 You  need  to  work  on  the  rocks  though.  Think  they  can  make  a  much  more  powerful  statement.
