 This  is  Veerendra's  planted  tank.  Veera  is  from  Kasturinagar,  Bangalore  and  is  just  two  and  a  half  months  in  the  hobby.
 
 The  substrate  -  Just  plain  red  soil  nothing  above  or  below.
 
 No  fertilizers.   No  Co2.  Never  heard  of  it.  He  will  be  joining  IAH  ASAP.  He  is  already  very  excited  about  the  additions  he  can  do  including  pressurized  Co2.

 My  God  if  he  can  get  it  look  like  this  with  Just  red  soil  why  does  he  want  any  additions.
 
 On  the  the  other  hand  think  of  what  he  will  produce  if  he  goes  all  the  way  high  tech.

 His  Glosso  and  hair  grass  are  dead  or  dying.  He  had  heavily  planted  them  in  the  fore  ground.  I  will  post  a  close  up  soon.  And  also  photograph  improvements  when  they  happen  down  the  months.  Smile  
 A  lot  of  suggestions  have  been  given  which  he  is  slowly  digesting.

 Hi  Trevor,  
 I  guess  you  mean  to  say  just  plain  red  soil  and  gravel  on  top.

 Hi  Trevor,

 No  gravel  on  the  top.  Just  plain  red  soil.
 
 This  advice  to  this  newbie  came  from  the  LFS  who  encouraged  him  to  put  in  Discus  in  addition  to  the  160  ┬ácardinal  tetras,  the  denisoni,  the  hybrid  zebra  danios,  the  chinese  algae  eater,  the  mollies  and  their  fry,  the  numerious  mountain  minnows,  the  rams,  and  other  fish  I  fail  to  recall  off  hand.
 
 I  had  seen  the  tank  for  the  first  time  yesterday.  The  hobbyist  is  also  to  blame  for  his  impulsive  buying  spree  and  no  research  on  the  subject.

 Venkat.  The  tank  is  a  four  footer.  (48"  x  18"  x  18")
 
 
 
 On  close  examination  of  the  bottom  you  can  see  the  scanty  hair  grass  and  the  results  of  not  using  gravel  to  hold  the  red  soil  down.
 
 
 The  top  is  simply  super.  Thumb Up
