 Welcome  to  the  wonderful  world  of  aquariums.
 Patience  is  the  key  to  success  in  this  hobby,  read  as  much  as  you  can.
 I  would  not  advice  to  go  for  a  planted  tank  at  this  stage.
 Plants  and  fish  have  somewhat  contradictory  requirements.

Jabba,
 
 Right  you  are.  This  is  the  problem  today  in  IAH.
 
 Without  knowing  the  subject  people  start  comment.
 
 
 Also  you  can  see  another  thread  today  is  "My  RCS  Tank!!".  And  author  Lugia_111
 also  demanding  that  it  is  his  1st  planted  tank.
 
 I  have  to  know  now  which  or  what  is  planted  tank!!                

 
 
 @Abhi  sir:  Lugia  is  actually  a  high  school  student  who  comes  every  week  to  the  IAH  meetings.
 He  is  studying  the  things  at  a  slow  pace.....  It  was  us  who  pushed  him  to  post  his  tank  pictures.
 We  will  try  our  best  to  help  him  with  plants  that  can  be  kept  in  his  tank.
 
 All  the  appreciation  there  was  to  encourage  him....
 We  will  definitely  see  unbeatable  scapes  from  him  on  the  coming  days

 @alsan:  I  would  say  that  you  first  go  for  a  good  filter  than  a  Co2  setup.....
 I  have  seen  some  people  growing  hairgrass  without  Co2.  The  problem  will  be  that  it  will  grow  slowly  and  you  cannot  add  high  light  to  your  tank.
 
 I  am  using  Sun  sun  canister  for  the  last  4  monce....No  issues  so  far.
 Eheim  is  of  course  the  best  but  there  is  a  price  attached  to  its  quality.
 Still  it  is  not  as  bad  as  ADA  products  on  pricing......

 The  plastic  hose  gets  bent  often  and  filter  stops.  
 The  suction  cups  lost  their  purpose  in  two  months.  They  stopped  sticking  to  the  glass.

 It's  ok.  But  at  the  same  time  think  about  other  way  arround.

 Mortis   Thumbs Up  
 
 Alsan  -  Iwagumi  or  no  Iwagumi  -  Nice  setup!!
 
 But  +1  Sandeep  -  Its  too  early  for  a  planted  setup  but  as  you  have  plunged  into  it,  you  should  keep  enormous  patience  from  now  on  and  ready  to  face  up  issues  that  may  arise.  Also  do  not  make  the  MISTAKE  of  adding  the  fish  before  your  tank  parameters  are  stable.
 
 Also  considering  your  choice  of  plants  do  add  some  fast  growing  stem  plants  like  cobomba  to  absorb  extra  nutrients  else  you  will  have  a  algae  boom.
