 Folks,
 Enjoyed  meeting  the  denizens  of  the  group  today  at  Cubbon  park.  Hope  to  be  able  to  drop  by  regularly.  
 As  mentioned  today  am  uploading  a  couple  of  images  of  the  goat  manure  fertilized  planted  tank  that  we  maintain.  I  have  used  this  technique  for  some  years  now  and  have  found  it  to  be  quite  effective.  Will  post  a  complete  HOWTO  if  anyone  is  interested.

 Folks,
 Was  a  pleasure  meeting  up  with  the  bangalore  auqrists  @  Cubbon  park  today.  As  promised  a  couple  of  photos  of  the  goat  fertilized  tank  that  we  maintain.  Will  post  a  HOWTO  if  anyone  wants  to  try  the  same.  Have  been  using  manure  for  a  long  while  now  and  have  found  river  sand  to  be  a  good  binder  to  hold  down  and  prevent  algal  blooms...

 Shiv  it  was  nice  meeting  you  at  the  ASK  meet  today...  Thumb Up  
 The  goat  manure  fertilized  planted  tank  seems  promising  to  me.
 I'm  not  really  sure  if  I  will  be  setting  up  one  using  this  method,  but  if  you  
 do  post  the  procedure  I  will  be  glad  to  gain  some  knowledge.

 Shiv,
 
 Nice  meeting  you  too.
 
 I  do  not  see  any  out  of  ordinary  growth.  The  same  can  be  achieved  using  plain  red  soil  with  out  any  risk  of  Ammonia  or  Nitrite  spikes  that  might  be  caused  by  the  decaying  manure  coming  in  contact  with  the  water  column.
 
 My  examples...With  plain  slurry  of  Laterite  and  river  sand,  covered  with  another  layer  of  river  sand.
 
 
 
 And  I  have  merged  the  two  threads.
 
 Regards,

 Hi  valluvar,
 I  prefer  inserting  the  goat  manure  around  large  root  feeders  like  amazon  and  crypts  when  their  growth  starts  receding.  Application  is  something  similar  to  using  root  tabs.  Or  else,  its  always  the  soil  based  substrate,  which  gives  similar  growth  as  yours..  
 But  please  do  give  the  details  of  how  you  have  done  it,  so  that  people  interested  can  try  it..  Very Happy

 Hi  Nayak,
 The  tanks  are  lovely.  My  thinking  on  the  Nh,  Nitrate  balance  is  that  over  a  period  of  time  it  evens  out.  These  manure  fertilized  tanks  are  left  to  idle  for  more  than   couple  of  weeks  before  i  add  anything.  The  first  species  are  usually  Pocelids  as  they  are  very  NH  sensitive.  Once  they  are  settled  its  usually  ok  to  move  forward  on  the  stocking.  Will  try  this  laterite  based  setup  too.

 I  have  seen  better  tanks  with  the  use  of  laterite.
 
 My  only  concern  for  anyone  who  want  to  try  any  animal  manure  is  leaching  of  other  bacteria  into  the  water  column  which  is  not  ideal  for  a  stagnet  water  body  like  our  home  aquariums.
 
 Regards,
 Surya

 I  would  not  use  any  kind  of  manure  in  an  aquarium  period.  There  are  too  mnay  risks  and  variables  involved  and  there  is  a  high  chance  of  disaster

 @Valluvar:  That's  simply  great,  dude.  Did  u  use  the  Goat  manure  as  it  is  or  what?  I've  used  Cow  Dung  in  my  5  gallon  Betta  tank.
 *First,  I  collected  a  handful  of  fresh  Cow  dung.
 *Then  I  dugged  out  some  equal  amount  of  Garden  soil  from  my  backyard.
 *Mixed  them  both  and  added  some  water  to  loosen  it.
 *After  mixing  well,  I  placed  that  mix  in  a  bucket  and  left  that  in  my  backyard,  for  decomposing.
 *I  used  to  check  it  daily  morning  and  after  1  week  I  stirred  it  lightly  and  I  was  happy  to  see  some  changes  going  on.
 *I  left  it  for  3  more  weeks,  that's  nearly  a  month  and  now,  the  Nutrient  rich  mixture  was  ready  to  use.
 *I  placed  the  mix  in  my  5gallon  tank  to  about  1inch  and  topped  it  with  0.5inch  River  sand.
 *But,  b4  topping  with  River  sand,  I  planted  the  plants  in  all  the  places  where  I  wanted  them  to  so  that  I  can  avoid  disturbing  the  substrate.
 Now,  all  the  plants  are  showing  a  decent  growth  and  my  Fighter  fish  is  having  a  'Sweet  Home'.
