 Hello  everyone..
 
 Im  Hiran  from  Thrissur,  Kerala..  Currently  im  staying  at  Trivandrum..  After  much  dreaming  and  reading  online  i  have  bought  my  first  tank  last  saturday..  Its  a  24x12x16..  It  has  hood  with  a  single  8w  T4  tubelight..  I  have  bought  white  gravels  for  the  base  layer..  and  a  Boyu  sp1000  filter  with  300l\h  capacity..
 
 I  want  a  planted  tank..  Is  it  possible  to  add  plants  to  the  gravel  or  do  i  need  to  plant  them  in  cups  of  sand??
 
 Also  which  fishes  i  should  look  to  buy  for  this  set  up??  I  like  to  add  Angels..  So  what  other  fishes  can  i  add  as  starter  fish??

 If  all  you  need  is  some  plants  in  the  tank.
 You  can  go  for  Anubias  and  Ferns....  This  way  you  dont  need  any  substrate.  You  have  to  tie  them  to  a  drift  wood  or  a  rock  and  put  it  in  the  tank.  Any  other  plant  would  need  many  things  changed  in  your  setup.  Like  Lights,substrate  etc.
 
 In  the  current  set  up  you  have,  even  Anubias  and  Ferns  will  just  survive  and  will  grow  reeeeeeeeeeeally  slow.
 If  you  want  them  to  grow  you  need  to  add  a  total  of  atleast  20  watts  lighting  and  if  possible  keep  the  river  sand  instead  of  these  pebbles.  The  reason  I  am  suggesting  for  a  change  of  these  pebbles  is  that  the  roots  of  ferns  and  anubias  tend  to  grow  from  the  wood  or  rock  to  the  soil.  The  pebbles  will  not  be  good  for  the  roots  to  grow  into.  In  case  of  sand  the  roots  will  grow  better.  I  have  the  same  pebbles  in  one  of  my  tank  where  I  have  kept  some  anubias.  I  can  see  the  anubias  grow  really  slow  and  the  roots  are  still  not  fixed  on  the  substrate  even  after  an  year.

 Hello  Hiran,
 
 Good  to  know  that  you  are  interested  to  step  into  this  "A  Lot  Of  Commitment  "  seeking  Planted  Aquarium.  Very  rarely  do  someone  come  into  terms  with  the  mind  and  heart  to  take  this  project  up.  
 
 
 In  Trivandrum,  if  you  seek  any  guidance  i  will  suggest  Mr  Kasirajan  of  Royal  Aqua  Farm  ,  Pottakkuzhy.  I  know  there  are  other  people  in  the  trade  in  Trivandrum,  but  believe  me  he  has  been  in  this  for  pretty  long.  He  also  stocks  great  fertilizers  for  plant  growth.  He  sell  some  of  his  homegrown  stuff  too.  Check  with  him,  He  might  be  able  to  guide  you  through.

 You  have  already  made  mistakes  by  being  in  a  hurry  and  doing  things  first  and  asking  questions  later.  Your  fish  are  totally  incompatible  and  even  then  your  stocking  is  wrong
