 Hi  All
 
 I  have  a  rough  plan  for  my  first  aquarium.  Welcome  suggestions,  criticism,  advises.
 
 1.  Tank:  2.5  Feet  x  1  Feet  x  1.5  Feet  (High)  i.e.  30  Gallons.  
 2.  Hood:  Not  sure  if  local  shops  have  them  for  this  size,  Did  not  find  online  for  this  size
 3.  Filter:  Fluval®  U2  
 4.  Heater:  Fluval  E  Heater  or  EHEIM  Jager
 5.  Light:  T5  LED  Tubes  2  x  5  W  (  Have  to  fix  DIY  way  inside  the  hood  )
 6.  Substrate
       :  Fluval  Gravel  Grey  Natural  10kg  5MM
       :  Akuastabil  Aquarium  Gravel  3-6  Mm  Uranus
 7.  Décor
       :Ferplast  Aquarium  background  Blu9054
       :Artificial  Silk  Plants:  Marina  Vibrascaper  8”,  3x  Ferplast  9089  plant  4”  
 8.  Pet  Options  (Max  Length  30”)
       :  Rummy  Nose
       :  Zebra  Danios  
       :  Coridora  
       :  Tetras  -  Black  widow,  Serape  
 
 I  found  all  components  online  expect  fish  /  tank  and  hood.  Hope  I'd  get  them  in  LFS.  Advice  if  shall  take  substrate  also  locally.  I  think  they  should  be  available  in  Jamshedpur  or  Ranchi  in  Jahrakhand.

 Since  its  a  fish  only  tank,  use  locally  available  substrate.  
 
 The  tank  and  Hood  can  be  made  to  order  at  any  LFS.  Use  8mm  glass  since  you  want  a  45  cm  tall  tank.
 
 Update  you  location  in  your  profile.

 I  wish  I  was  this  organized  when  I  was  setting  up  my  first  tank  :)
 
 The  fishes  you're  housing  are  all  hardy,  if  you  aren't  going  to  have  live  plants,  why  spend  so  much  on  the  substrate?  Why  not  regular  shell  free  sand?

 Thanks  @Preeths  and  @vm120286.   BTW  I  too  am  not  very  organised  -  just  gathered  ideas  form  some  forums  here  Smile  
 I'll  add  or  update  my  plan  with  hood  "made  to  order"  and  tank  "made  out  of  8mm  glass",  regular  shell  free  sand  from  LFS.   
 
 I  hope  to  order  the  items  from  https://www.petoxy.com/  or  Ebay  -  hope  they  are  OK.

 Buying  stuff  on  online  pet  stores  in  India  is  a  matter  of  luck.  There  are  lots  of  rants  about  products  not  being  shipped,  money  not  returned  for  defective  items  etc...  you  are  better   of  buying  on  Flipkart  or  amazon  as  there  will  be  some  level  of  guarantee  that  if  the  product  is  not  shipped  you  get  your  money  back.  Exercise  caution  when  buying  from  online  store.  Search  for  reviews  before  ordering.

   1.  Tank:  2.5  Feet  x  1  Feet  x  1.5  Feet  (High)  i.e.  25  Gallons  effective  leaving  place  for  substrate  and  some  gap  at  top.  
   2.  Hood:  Local  shop  shall  provide,  have  to  cut  one  end  for  filter
   3.  Filter:  AquaClear  70
   4.  Heater:  Not  buying  now  !!!!
   5.  Light:  T5  LED  Tubes  2  x  5  W  (  Received  )  -  but  for  plant  I'd  need  some  more  -  shall  buy  a  few  9W  LEDs  also.  
   6.  Substrate:   Potting  Mix  (  Coco  Peat,  Vermiculite  etc  based  organic  mix)  Topped  by  Sand  or  Gravel
   7.  Décor:   Single  color  background  -  Blue  or  Black,  Some  Drift  Wood
   8.  Plant:  Back  [  Vallisneria,  Cryptocoryne  ],  Mid   [Java  Fern,  Anubias  Nana,  Amazon  Sword],  Fore  [Java  Moss,  Rotala,  Glosso]
   9.  Pets:   Later  once  plants  are  stable..  Mostly  as  listed  earlier  but  now  adding  some  cleaning  crews
 
 Please  suggest  where  to  buy  plants  from.  I  am  in  Jamshedpur.  Would  you  be  ok  to  buy  from  online  shop  like  https://finsnflora.com
 
 Thanks  in  advance.

 You  are  spot  on  with  this  comment.  Learned  my  lessons  the  hard  way.  Be  very  careful,  there  are  tons  of  fakes  out  there  and  your  local  store  is  much  cheaper.
