 Hello  Everyone,
 
 Though  we  have  been  keeping  fishes  for  about  an  year  now.  Really  started  off  2  months  back  towards  a  planted  setup  after  all  the  encouragement  from  IAH/ASK.
 
 We  have  2  tanks.  Same  size  each.  
 L  18  x  W  12  x  H  16
 
 Volume  -  10  gallon,  38  litres  each
 
 Lighting  -  3.6  watts  per  gallon
   
 Pressurized  CO2  with  Ferts
 
 Tank  1  started  2  months  back.
 
 Tank  2  started  3  weeks  back,  HC  planted  today!
 
 I  am  attaching  the  pictures  below......
 
 Thanks,
 
 Sanjoy

 Very  interesting  and  nice.
 Using  the  internal  power  filter  for  a  planted  tank  is  fine  ?

 Thanks  Navneeth,  Sanjay,  Selwin,  Jaiby  and  Shyam.  Glad  that  you  liked  them.
 
 Selwin:  Did  update  Location  with  an  avataar  too.  Good  that  you  pointed  out.   Smile  
 
 Shyam:  I  did  not  have  any  issues  with  the  internal  filters  other  than  that  area  cannot  be  used  for  planting.  You  know  what?  In  my  2nd  tank,  2  out  of  5  shrimps  have  survived  from  Serpae  tetras  for  2  weeks  now  due  to  the  hiding  place  beneath  the  filter   Cheering

 Thanks  Sanjoy.  I  am  still  learning  the  basics  Smile
 After  how  many  days  you  introduced  the  fishes  in  tanks  ?  What  precautions  were  taken  before  that,  if  any.

 Never  mind  Shyam,   even  I  am  a  beginner  in  planted  Aquariua.  But  I  had  to  deal  with  ADA  Amazonia  sometime  back.  
 
 I  laid  the  substrate  in  both  of  my  tanks  and  had  no  filter  running  and  then:
 
 1.  1st  week  -  30%  water  change  every  alternate  days.
 2.  2nd  week  -  30%  water  change  every  2  days.  i.e  Mon,  thu,  sun
 3.  3rd  week  -  30%  water  change  twice  a  week.  i.e.  wed,  sun
 
 This  all  is  done  since  ADA  Amazonia  leeches  ammonia  for  the  first  few  weeks.
 
 From  then  I  change  30%  water  every  saturday  even  now.
 
 Introduction  of  fishes  at  the  start  of  4th  week.  Since  your  tank  has  twice  the  amount  of  amazonia  than  I  have,  adjust  accordingly.  I  suggest  you  wait  for  start  of  6th  week.
 
 Startling  fact:  these  3  weeks  all  my  19  fishes  (from  both  tanks)  survived  happily  in  2  separate  buckets  (tank  wise)  with  the  internal  filters  running.  My  native  shrimps  bred  in  the  bucket  Surprised  
 
 And  after  I  introduced  them  to  their  respective  tanks  at  the  start  of  the  4th  week.  No  mortality  Thumbs Up  
 
 That's  my  reality.  All  the  best!
 
 Thanks,
 
 Sanjoy

 Nice  tanks...   Thumb Up  
 
 Which  are  the  plants  that  you  have  planted  to  the  right  front  side  of  the  tank  (1st  tank).  Is  that  any  stem  plant?  If  yes,  please  move  them  towards  the  back  of  the  tank.  In  time,  they  grow  big  and  obstruct  the  light  to  the  carpet  plant.
