 hi,
         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.
 
   Bye.....

 You  can  look  at  Moss  (Java,  Flame  etc  )  for  attaching  onto  the  stones,  Anubias  is  another  beautiful  plant  which  you  could  use  by  attaching  onto  some  driftwood.
 
 Moss  is  something  which  you  can  get  from  hobbyists  who  have  in  excess.....Anubias  are  a  bit  expensive.

 Hi  anonymos,  welcome  to  IAH.  First  I  request  you  to  add  your  real  name  in  Signature.  Cause  in  IAH  we  hate  to  call  someone  with  a  non  human  pet  names.  Smile
 
 Now  coming  to  your  point.  First  let  me  ask  you,  why  don't  you  add  substrate  to  the  tank?  Any  specific  reason?
 
 Now  the  plants  which  can  be  grown  on  Rocks  or  Woods  are,
 
 1.  Different  Types  Of  Aquatic  Ferns  (Java  Fern,  Windelov  etc)
 
 2.  Anubias  Species  (Nana,  Barteri  etc)
 
 3.  Aquatic  Moss  (Java  Moss,  Taiwan,  Singapur,  Flame,  spike  moss  etc)
 
 For  the  plants  you  can  get  in  touch  with  Suraj  (nature_lover),  Adip  or  Mayur.
 
 And  keeping  Piranhas  in  a  2.5  feet  tank  is  not  a  good  idea.  You  need  minimum  4  feeter  to  house  them.

 hi  thirtha,
                         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.

 Oops  sorry.  Thanks  for  the  correction  Vyas.  Smile
 
 @Sujai:  It's  better  you  do  the  research  by  yourself.  Cause  the  term  'Good  Looking'  varies  man  to  man.   Chuckle
