 I  wanted  to  use  it  as  a  layer  and  top  it  with  the  aquarium  sand.
 Its  for  the  planted  tank.  I  was  told  its  necessary  for  a  planted  tank.

 Never  make  that  mistake  of  blindly  adding  peat.  Do  a  reaserch  of  is  that  required  first.
 
 More  details  of  water  tank  and  plants  needed  to  give  you  a  better  suggestion.

 Some  people  are  so  fascinated  by  peat  that  they  want  to  add  it  to  the  substrate.  You  have  to  be  careful  doing  this  as  peat  will  have  to  be  used  in  absolute  moderation.  Do  not  exceed  one  handful  of  peat  per  4  sq.ft  of  aquarium  area.  Sprinkle  the  peat  over  the  laterite  slurry  before  you  add  the  coarse  gravel  as  detailed  below.

 Hi  Ravi
 
       It's  simple  1  inch  of  gardern  soil  at  the  bottom,  add  one  handful  of  peat  not  more,  then  3  inches  of  3-4mm  gravel  on  top  of  this.
 
       As  for  the  gardern  soil  and  peat  you  can  find  it  in  any  plant  nursery  in  your  city.  Withthe  gravel  someone  from  chennai  will  need  to  help  you  out.
 
    Have  a  busy  aqua  weekend   Thumb Up  
 
    Regards
       Harshal.

 Hi  Ravi,
 I  have  a  planted  tank  too...  and  no  peat  ...  only  laterite  and  seived  gravel  and  my  plants  are  doing  extremely  well...
 
 add  the  bottom  layer  as  laterite(semmannu  in  tamil)  and  over  that  add  abt  3-4  inches  of  well  seived  gravel  (size  of  abt  2-3mm)....
 
 It  also  depends  on  the  plants  that  you  are  plannin  to  set  it  up  with...  
 
 and  then  comes  the  major  factor!!!  Co2  and  Lightin  requirements...  have  you  thought  these  over?  
 
 I  guess,  huntin  for  peat  in  chennai  shall  only  be  a  waste  of  time  as  it  shall  create  more  issues  (if  not  added  correctly)  than  more  benefits.
 
 wher  in  chennai  r  u?
 
 Regards
 Pk
