 Navneeth  do  a  massive  water  change,  dose  as  normal  before  using  the  new  lights.
 
 It's  better  to  reset  everything  along  with  the  lights.
 
 Keep  photo  period  8  hrs  then  increase  over  3  weeks  to  10-11  hrs.
 Enjoy!

 Madhu  don't  go  overboard  with  HOB  Filters  and  Tilapia  +  circulation  myth,  such  drastic  measures  are  not  required  and  HOB  will  cause  more  bad  than  good  in  a  high  light,  CO2  injected  environment.
 
 More  than  blind  water  circulation  if  you  can  ensure  that  CO2  enriched  water  is  circulated  better,  that  will  help,  but  this  is  not  a  big  problem  for  a  4  x  2  x2.
 
 Algae  will  get  a  hold  when  your  plants  are  not  doing  well  and  the  balance  is  disturbed.  With  high  light  keeping  CO2  up  there  is  the  biggest  challenge,  HOB  will  remove  CO2  from  the  water.
 
 Algae  dislodged  due  to  water  current  will  accumulate  around  plants,  driftwood,  rocks,  and  grow,  they  will  grow.  Very Happy  
 
 BBA  will  cling  on  to  the  outlet  tube  of  your  filter  where  the  water  movement  is  highest  in  the  tank  and  flourish.  Haven't  you  seen  that?  Very Happy

 Yes  sir,  That  is  there.   But  i  got  better  pearling  and  growth  with  the  CO2  diffuser  just  under  the  hang  on  not  to  mention  most  of  the  plants  were  rosettes  and  pretty  hardy  enough  and  water  changes  were  30%  every  2-3  days,  until  it  got  balanced.

 Madhu  this  guy  is  using  a  far  more  high  light  setup  than  you  have,  IMO.
 
 I  don't  know  what  setup  you  got  but  a  diffuser  makes  it  a  small  tank.
 
 With  2Watts  per  gallon  of  light  and  HO  +  good  reflectors  it  does  the  job  of  4  watts  per  gallon  of  light  otherwise.
 
 He's  got  it  up  there  with  light.  CO2  is  the  trouble  he'll  have  if  anything.

 Yes  sir  absolutely,
 My  tank  is  3  years  old.   4x15"x18"  with  4  trulites  dual  reflector  on  each  unit  6"  above  surface.   Just  laterite  and  2-3  mm  gravel  on  top  and  slightly  bigger  gravel  below  mixed  with  laterite  and  most  of  them  are  nutrient  hungry  aponos  and  echinos  not  to  mention,  tennelus  and  quadricostatus  are  growing  like  weeds  on  the  foreground/mid.   The  good  thing  is  i  moved  it  to  my  office  2  years  back  so  no  much  trouble  with  salem  summer  as  though.

 Madhu,
 
 I  have  almost  the  same  setup  as  Navneeth   only  2  more  Tubes...  so  another  around  110  Watts  more,  believe  me  ,  it's  a  Whole  New  Ball  Game  ,  when  it  comes  to  ADA  II  and   Highlights  and  CO2......  Chuckle  ,  it  took  3  months  for  me  to  make  the  Tank  stabilise  with  drastic  re-thinking   and  re-work  on   the  EI  method  ,  otherwise  ,  the  Tank  was  turning  into  a  Algea  Farm  !!   Chuckle   ,  
 
 Regds
 VRaghu.

 Thanks  Madan  Sir,  VRaghu  and  Madhu...
 
 the  algae  has  reduced  after  50%  water  changes  twice  in  a  week  and  continued  dosing  of  brighty  K.   Smile  ..i  will  picking  up  more  plants  from  Adip  or  Mayur  this  week  as  its  pay  day  this  friday...  Chuckle  ...and  some  more  mollies  would  do  the  Job......will  POST  the  Recent  Pics  of  the  whole  tank  and  the  fixture  also  tomorrow..
 
 Rearranged  some  of  the  plants..i.e  trimmed  the  cabomba  and  one  more  plant....
 algae  is  forming  only  on  the  amazonia  plant,  on  the  moss..and  one  more  plant..as  Madan  Sir  and  mayur  told  me  ,  mercilessly  chop  off  the  few  leaves  which  have  algae...got  the  reactor  from  Deepak  also.forgot  to  pay  him  at  aquatika...will  be  getting  my  refilled  CO2  cylinder(  new  Regulator  ,  courtesy-  the  worst  enemies  on  earth  )  ...from  adip  tomorrow!.
 
 ..by  the  way,  thinking  of  using  ADA  Bright  sand  like  our  bangalore  Amano  has  done  to  one  of  his  tanks  Chuckle  ..that  river  bank  kind  of  setup..was  really  beautifull..(  HOPE  THERE  ARE  NO  COPYRIGHT  ISSUES)  Smile   ..saves  the  foreground  plants  headache...
