 Hi  everybody,
 I  am  a  newbie  to  Planted  Aquariums  and  relatively  new  to  the  fishes  too..
 Had  done  a  little  bit  of  research  on  plants  and  fishes  and  finally  made  my  mind  to  set  a  lowtech  planted  tank.(intend  to  advance  to  highTech  soon  Very Happy  )
 Here  I  look  for  advices  and  tips  from  experts,  whom  i  saw  here  encouraging  others,  and  surely  will  help  to  develop  mine  in  to  a  better  tank)
 Following  are  the  details  of  my  tank  which  is  been  running  for  almost  one  and  half  month,  and  some  snaps-
 
 Tank  Size-   80cmX40cmX40cm  -DIY
 Substrate-   Soil  for  plants  in  granulated  form  and  white  gravel  on  top  (from  LFS)  
 Lighting-      4x20W  CFL--Philips  and  1x18W  T5  Philips  tube  light.  (both  6500k)-  DIY
 Filter-            BOYU  EF-10  Cannister(  300Ltr/Hr)
 Co2-              DIY  with  airstone
 Fertilizers-  Sera  Florennete  A  and  Sera  flore  plus  Root  tabs  fortnightly,  Sera  macro  nutrients  day  drops  and  once  in  a  month
                         Tetra  plantamin  liquid  fertilizer(  which  caused  filamentous  algae  bloom,  next  time  i'll  use  this  with  caution  or  probably
                           will  switch  to  Sera  florena  liquid  fertilizer  )  
 Water  Parameters-  Unknown  (  Intend  to  test  it  soon,  Now  using  dechlorinated  tap  water  with  15%  -  20%  weekly  water  changes)
 
 Plants
 Bacopa  Caroliniana
 Amazon  Swords  two  types
 Ludwigia  Glandulosa
 Valisneria  Tortifolia
 Anubias  nana  gold
 Anacharis
 Ambulia
 Water  Wisteria
 Unknown  (Similar  to  Amazon  sword  but  with  dark  green  brittle  leaves,  need  advise)
 Ludwigia  Reineckii  (i  guess,  need  advise)
 
 Fishes
 Dwarf  Gourami-1No.
 Neon  tetras-12Nos.
 Male  Guppy-1No.  (1  female  in  QT  &  will  join  him  soon)

 Very  neat  ...  but  i  do  wish  you  had  used  a  more  natural  gravel  color.  Otherwise  ...  super  impressive!!

 Increase  more  plants,  so  far  looks  good.
 Go  easy  with  fertilization,  your  plant  mass  is  low.

 thanks  to  all  for  the  encouragement...
 
 @Sergio-  i  just  cut  that  piece  of  wood  from  a  small  dried  out  tree  and  boiled  it  for  almost  six  hours.  And  then  i  attached  anubias  to  it.  (when  i  became  obsessed  with  the  need  of  a  driftwood  in  my  tank.  Need  to  go  for  a  collection  trip)
   
 @Sandeep-  yes  i'll  try  to  increase  plant  mass.  But  i'm  adding  the  fertilizers  as  prescribed  on  their  instruction  leaflets...
 Might  be  usually  on  higher  side,  right?
