i have a tank measuring-2.5x1x1 feet, holding around 60 litres of water. I dont have any substrate/gravel in my tank, but i have covered the bottom of my tank with red stones(the stones are semi hard and covered with red powdery substance, i got this from a mining area). I am from a town,so cant get all the equipment or fish or plants in my area.
i previously had a pair of RB-Piranhas for a year but they died suddenly 2 months back.Now my problems are---------
1) i want to grow plants in my tank but cant change to gravel or laterite or any other substrate.So are there any plants that can grow on stones.If yes please inform me the name, cost and the shops that sell them (for cheap) in Bangalore or Chennai and their maintainance.
2) I am fond of Piranhas. How many varieties of Piranhas are available in Bangalore(I cant get them in my town now) and what is their cost and where can they be bought(for cheap)?and which one is appropriate for my tank(dimensions)? Also inform me the special needs of Piranhas.Can we keep any other species(example- Oscars) of fish in a tank along with Piranhas(especially RBP) or can we keep two different varieties of Piranhas together.
I know very least about keeping fish. So please bear with my ignorance. Please reply.

i am sujai. i dont like keeping substrate because- i have tried growing plants with substrate that i made my self with little success and every time i am able to grow only algae or fungus. Also i stay away from home (i will be busy) , so cant maintain a substrate filled aquarium.
since I cant afford to get a new aquarium of 4feet, cant i really keep Piranhas. and how to contact --Surya (Nature Lover), Adip or Mayur.
