 @Rocky:  please  check  out  my  first  post.  I  have  given  all  the  details  of  the  current  setup  and  the  setup  plan  their.
 
 @Dev:  Thanks  for  the  kind  words.  Personally  I  don't  like  solitary  fish.  So  frist  will  empty  the  current  stock  and  will  go  for  a  small  batch.  But  as  of  now  decided  nothing  about  fishes.  Smile

 Thanks  Bro  for  the  kind  words  Smile  ....  but  still  a  long  way  to  go...  waiting  for  Adip  to  get  new  plants  stock  
 
 Gurgaon  is  a  Dry  area  and  now  a  days  we  are  getting  small  rain  falls  here.  This  place  is  flactuating  with  High  and  low  temparature  frequently.  So  just  to  avoid  thermal  shock  I  put  the  heater  on.Otherwise  avarage  tank  temp  is  27  degree.

PostPosted: Tue Sep 25, 2007 9:47 pm Post subject: Algae Issues :: Need Help Reply with quote

 As  you  all  told,  that  my  tank  is  having  too  many  fishes,  last  weekend  I  transfered  most  of  my  fishes  to  my  friend's  tank.  As  of  now  my  tank  is  holding,
 6  Rams
 5  Ottos  
 1  Small  Clown  Loach
 
   Help  
 
 Suddenly  the  tank  infested  with  Algae  as  by  mistek  I  dosed  1  ml  PMDD(Actually  not  by  mistek,  It  was  just  a  result  of  my  mad  R'nD  Wall Bang  ).  Swords  are  now  covered  by  Green  Hair  Algae,  Moss  is  covered  by  Dust  Brown  Algae  and  the  tank  glass  also  is  getting  Algae  layer.
 
 As  of  now,  I  suck  out  most  of  the  suspended  dirts  and  changed  80%  of  the  water.  Changed  yeast  Mixture.
 
 By  Coming  week,   I  will  complete  my  plantation.  But  before  that  really  want  to  get  rid  of  the  algae.  
 
 If  I  am  missing  something,  please  let  me  know.

 I  changed  my  mind  not  to  go  with  the  Aquascape  I  have  done  before.  There  are  some  reasons  what  I  could  not  deny.  And  they  are,
 
 1.  Focal  Point:  In  my  old  scape,  there  is  no  focal  point  what  will  remain  even  after  complete  plantation  and  plant  growth.  So  the  eye  will  keep  searching  a  place  to  rest.  As  of  the  last  photo,  Sword  Bush  is  doing  that  job,  but  after  putting  all  other  plants  it  will  loose  the  effect.
 
 2.  Depth:  In  the  old  scape,  I  wont  be  able  to  give  the  required  depth  of  a  grass  field  what  I  tried  to  create.
 
 3.  Placement  Of  Rocks:  They  were  too  symetrical  and  not  looking  natural.  it  was  more  like  a  backyard  bush  than  a  grass  field.  Â Chuckle  
 
 So  before  getting  the  plants  stock  nex  week,  I  finalise  the  scape  in  a  drawing  board.  Collected  the  stones  required  for  hard  sacping  and  resetup  the  tank  with  hard  scape  only  as  of  now.  
 
 And  here  we  go  Smile

   Any  Idea,  Sugession  and  Criticism  most  welcome.

 Hi  Tirthankar
 
   Â I  like  this  scaping  much  better  than  your  previous  one.Great  work  in  planning!
   Â 
   I  think  you  have  addressed  all  the  issues  of  the  previous  scape  very  well.  Just  one  thing  the  swords  will  grow  tall  and  over  time  might  become  very  dominant  in  your  sacping.  You  will  end  up  loosing  the  "Bush  look"  that  Â I  think  you  are  tring  to  achive.  You  could  try  either  E.Tenellesus  or  Sagitaria  subulata  instead  of  the  sword.  Both  the  plants  will  grow  to  arround  6  inches  in  height  and  give  a  good  contrast  with  the  parvula.
 
 Regards
   Harshal

 @Harshal:  Thanks  a  lot  for  the  input.  I  placed  the  swords  as  of  now  and  will  remove  them  after  some  time.  The  main  problem  is  they  are  flaring  in  width  too  much  and  killing  the  space.  And  I  have  exactly  same  idea  of  using  E.Tenellesus  just  to  break  the  symmetry  of  Pervula.  But  will  add  them  when  the  Pervula  will  start  to  grow.  That  time  I  will  ask  a  pinch  of  E.Tenellesus  from  you  if  required.   Very Happy  
 
 @Sujoy  Da:  After  looking  into  all  these  Nature  Aquariums  I  cought  into  this  idea.  But  I  am  100%  sure,  I  wont  be  able  to  creat  something  like  those.  Those  are  the  masterpiece  from  a  master.  And  I  am  a  beginner  with  deshi  stuffs!   ROFL   Thanks  a  lot  for  the  links.
 
 @Dev:  Take  a  look  at  the  drawing  to  see  which  all  plants  I  have  planned  to  use.  I  can  keep  all  of  them  in  a  low  height  to  meet  the  desired  looks.  But  all  depends  only  if  I  can  grow  them  properly.

 Sorry  for  the  huge  late  update.  But  I  think  late  is  better  than  never.  Yesterday  received  the  plants  from  Adip  and  completed  the  plantation.  based  on  the  plants  availability  there  are  some  changes  in  Plants.  So  as  of  now  the  plants  list  is,
 
 Rotala  macrandra  'Green'  
 Hemianthus  micranthamoides
 Eleocharis  parvula  Â 
 Sword  Amazon
 Anubias  Nana
 H  vertcillata
 
 In  right  hand  side  I  filled  up  Parvula,  HM  are  arround  the  stones  and  Rotala  went  to  left  back.  
 
 DIY  CO2  is  running  for  24x7  and  will  satrt  dosing  after  2  days  after  a  large  water  change.  Due  to  lack  of  plants  and  high  lights  the  tank  was  facing  Green  Hair  Algae  problem.  Hope  that  will  be  over  now.  
 
 Here  are  couple  of  snaps  I  clicked  few  minutes  back.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Sugession  and  comments  most  welcome.  Â Thumb Up
