 Hi  Keerthi  welcome  to  IAH
 
 your  substrate,  co2  looks  good.
 
 But  filter  better  to  go  with  canister  you  can  buy  sunsun  304  in  cbe  for  the  price  of  eheim  liberty  200L  because  the  basic  thump  rule  is  10x  flow  of  your  tank  volume  according  to  your  tank  dimension  the  volume  is  125to130litre  so  you  need  filter  with  1300L/H  flow,  by  using  canister  filter  you  can  reduce  dead  spots  and  can  have  better  water  circulation  around  your  tank.  you  can  use  HOB  but  canister  filter  are  good  for  planted  tank.
 
 SEACHEM  FLOURISH  EXCEL  is  not  Fertilizer  it  is  liquid  carbon,  when  you  have  pressurized  co2  you  don't  require  seachem  excel  learn  about  ferts  from  below  links  you  have  two  parts  in  dosing  Micro  and  Macro  and  some  method  of  dosing  EI(Estimative  Index)  or  PPS  methods  you  can  buy  the  salts  from  stadium  in  cbe(Shop  name  Modern  Science).  below  are  some  links  go  through
 
 http://indianaquariumhobbyist.com/community/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=1392
 
 http://www.theplantedtank.co.uk/dosing-methods.htm
 
 Lights  you  can  buy  from  beena  aquarium  very  cheap  or  if  DIY  go  to  thandumariyamman  kovil  near  old  fly  over  from  there  shops  starts  and  end  under  the  fly  over  where  you  can  buy  all  parts.  
 
 AND  WHY  HEATER   Surprised   Surprised   Surprised   today  only  i  bought  chiller  to  cool  down  the  water  even  keeping  two  fans  the  temperature  of  water  is  29-30  degree  in  my  tank.  best  temperature  is  23-26  degree  only.  better  get  a  aquarium  thermometer  and  check  the  temp.
 
 And  with  above  you  can  setup  HIGH  tech  Planted  Tank  :)
 
 I'm  from  CBE  only,  if  you  need  any  guidance  contact  me  in  below  number  this  week  i  will  be  in  cbe  only.
 
 WIth  regards,

 Andrew,
 
 Do  you  think  glass  thickness  of  6mm  will  hold  good  for  the  tank  dimensions  specified?
 I  have  had  leakages  previously  for  the  same  dimensions
 
 Regards,
 Karthik

 Can  you  post  a  pic  of  your  tank,  if  you  got  beedings  or  support  from  front  to  back  glass  it  will  hold,  it  should  hold  for  you  because  your  width  and  height  is  less  only.

 Andrew,
 
 I  do  not  have  the  tank  with  me  anymore.
 My  mom  that  the  often  leaking  glass  would  bring  some  kind  of  bad  luck   ROFL  
 I  had  to  get  rid  of  it  eventually  and  replaced  with  a  4  feeter  Very Happy  .
 
 But,  the  tank  never  had  any  additional  support  as  I  did  not  understand  the  concept  back  then.  
 
 Probably,  "Keerthi"  will  take  this  into  account  while  getting  one
 
 Thanks,
 Karthik

 Wink   Chuckle  
 
 Actually  yes,  I  never  understood  the  concept  of  support  earlier.
 It's  good  that  Keerthi  can  consider  it  if  he  wants  to  have  a  similar  one
 
 Thanks,
