 Deba,
 
 Yes,I  have  kept  a  pair  of  black  mollies  in  a  circular  glass  tank  in  my  table  for  a  month.that's  where  I  first  thought  of  an  aquarium,I  have  read  two  books  about  aquarium.  The  internet  is  very  helpful.  I  found  this  forum  as  I  needed  the  opinions  from  those  who  have  handful  experience.
 
 regards,
 
 Nithin.

 Royalbijoy,
 
 I  am  adding  fishes  only  after  the  cycle  process.
 
 I  have  collected  an  old  tank  from  a  friend  It  will  be  my  quarantine  tank.  I  have  a  small  glass  bowl  it  would  be  the  hospital  tank.
 
 No  one  in  the  locality  keeps  an  aquarium  in  a  proper  way,So  I  am  not  able  to  collect  gravel.
 
 regards,
 
 Nithin.

 Dear  Kiran,
 
 Thank  you,
 
 I  am  not  adding  salt  to  the  tank,but  I  need  your  opinion  about  keeping  salt  at  a  very  low  amount  in  the  tank,to  prevent  diseases.
 
 I  am  planting  banana  plant  and  the  swords,the  LFS  sells  this  species  only.There  is  no  popularity  for  planted  tanks  in  the  district.
 
 I  am  setting  up  a  CO2  setup,I  am  looking  for  good  ideas  to  mix  the  gas  with  water,I  am  considering  an  Idea  of  sprinkling  water  in  a  media  of  CO2  and  collecting  the  water  back  to  the  tank.
    
 I  have  a  low  budget,  so  I  am  looking  for  low  cost  lighting  options.  I  am  thinking  about  a  mesh  of  150  ordinary  white  LEDs,But  I  am  not  sure  they  will  provide  enough  lighting(  and  not  a  big  blunder),the  internet  is  also  empty  with  this  subject.Please  make  your  comments.
 
 Yes,I  will  do  a  cycle.Please  give  me  tips  on  that.
 
 regards,
 
 Nithin

 sandeepraghuvanshi,
 
 Thanks  for  the  links,its  good  to  see  another  blogger.(  My  blog  address  is  www.colourfade.wordpress.com  )
 
 The  pages  helped  me  a  lot.Now  I  know  cycling  is  about  two  bateria,I  never  thought  about  the  Nitrite  bacterium.
 
 Please  provide  information  about  compatible  fishes,Lighting  and  Methods  to  boost  plant  growth.
 
 I  am  planting  banana  and  amazon  sword,  It  will  be  good  for  me  if  I  can  use  low  cost  LED  solutions  for  lighting.  
 
 Regards,
 
 Nithin

 There  is  no  need  to  go  in  for  costly  branded  substrate.
 You  can  use  normal  construction  sand,  sieve  it  first  with  3  mm  sieve,  throw  out  larger  particles,  sieve  the  balance  with  1  mm  sieve(  I  used  kitchen  flour  sieve)  throw  out  finer  particles.  Now  you  have  substrate  which  has  particle  size  between  2-3  mm,  which  is  perfect  for  planed  tank.
 Livebearers  like  molly,  guppy,  swordtails  etc.  are  perfect  for  new  tank.
 Fill  the  tanks  with  whatever  plants  you  can  get,  cover  about  80%  of  surface  area.
 You  can  use  normal  CFL  bulbs  for  lighting,  aim  at  about  1-1.5  per  gallon.

 new  to  IAH,but  very  old  in  this  hobby
 whts  your  tank  size...its  all  need  fine  balance  between  light  co2  and  fish  that  your  keeping
 normally  river  greval  is  great  as  they  r  rich  in  iron,u  dnt  hve  to  use  fertilizer  tab  afterwards
 if  your  setting  up  diy  co2  reactor  then  u  can  use  glass  bubbler  in  syastem
 dnt  use  air  pump,as  it  will  disturb  water  colum  and  all  co2  will  be  lost  
 light  should  nt  be  exess  or  it  will  lead  to  green  soups
 start  wth  6-7  hour  of  light,then  slowoly  increase  period  to  suit  your  tank
 swords  are  great  and  hardy  keep  trimming  the  surface  leaves  if  any
 remember  nt  to  add  any  fertilizer  chemical  as  it  will  stress  your  fish
 happy  fishkeeping

 Hi  Rony,
   You  need  to  do  the  following  for  better  response  in  this  forum
 1.  first  start  a  new  thread  as  this  one  is  old  and  belongs  to  someone  else.
 2.  Update  your  location  in  your  profile
 3.  To  know  how  to  start  up  your  tank  go  through  the  links  that  Sandeep  has  shared
 4.  In  your  question  in  the  new  thread  also  do  include  if  you  are  planning  for  a  planted  tank  or  not
 
 
 Welcome  and  Enjoy  your  stay  at  IAH  Smile  
 
 One  quick  answer  to  your  question  is  that  dont  go  for  the  chinese  made  set  up  as  there  are  lot  of  issues  like  below
 1.  the  stand  get  worn  out  when  water  touches  it  during  water  changes
 2.  electrical  short  circuit  from  filter  on  long  run  
 3.  You  will  not  get  the  spare  parts  and  even  if  you  get  it  it  will  be  expensive  and  low  quality
 4.  They  cannot  be  used  as  such  for  planted  tanks
 5.  They  are  expensive  and  I  feel  not  really  worth  for  that  difference
 I  have  one  from  RS  electrical  and  I  faced  all  these

 Hi  all,

 
   Smile  It's  been  long  time.
 
 I  couldn't  go  for  big  tanks,I  am  staying  and  working  far  away  from  home.
 
 Still  I  care  for  a  betta,  Pls  see.
 http://colourfade.wordpress.com/2014/05/09/betta-philosophy/
 
 I  have  interest  in  money  plants,grow  them  in  glass  pots,in  water.I  got  two  of  them,I  put  mollies  and  guppies  in  water.
 Its  a  great  experience.The  water  never  gets  contaminated,plants  grow  fast  too.
 
 
 regards.
