 Got  your  PM
 
 I  got  mine  from  Rajesh  at  Sreepadma,  not  sure  if  he  sells  retail.
 
 Two  years  back  I  had  got  a  couple  of  pots  from  Mayur  at  Bangalore,  been  a  long  time  since  I  saw  him  online  /  in  the  WTS  section\
 
 You  can  try  Suraj  {naturelover}  or  Bharani  {kbharanikumar}
 
 Saw  the  pictiures  of  your  tank
 
 Can  you  provide  more  details?  I  am  not  sure  if  its  equipped  to  grow  hair  grass

 it  was  very  recently  i  got  aqua  scaping  madness  ,  so  my  knowledge  is  very  limited  to  what  i  find  on  google   Smile  .
 
 I  have  not  provided  co2  so  far  .  planning  to  make  a  DIY  yeast  co2  diffuser  soon.
 
 the  tank  capacity  is  approx  370  ltrs  and  has  a  pump  with  300  ltr/hr  .
 
 Lighting.....well  u  can  suggest  me  ,  now  i  am  using  a  18  W  tube  light  Smile  .

 Eureka?  {What  is  your  real  name?  Archimedes!!  Chuckle  }
 
 370Lt  is  a  big  tank,  I  ventured  out  with  a  15Lt  small  tank  and  then  graduated  to  a  50  Gal  tank.
 
 What  is  the  size  of  the  tank?  LxBxH
 Lights,  how  much  do  you  have?  How  much  can  you  add  on  if  needed?  {Think  of  electricity  bills  that  recur  every  month  etc  etc}
 Substrate,  what  do  you  have  for  substrate?  Sand,  Laterite,  Gravel?
 You  have  already  discussed  CO2,  running  a  370Lt  tank  with  a  DIY  CO2  might  be  cumbersome,  Essabee  has  an  old  post  on  running  a  huge  tank  with  an  industrial  sized  DIY  CO2  setup   Chuckle  
 There  are  other  stuff  that  will  need  to  be  discussed  as  you  go  along
 
 
 I  am  sure  that  you  would  have  seen  them,  but  let  me  point  you  to  these  gems  by  Trevor.  Go  through  them  and  come  back  with  specific  queries  for  specific  answers.

 I  am  sorry  if  I  sound  pedantic,  but  I  had  hate  to  see  some  one  turn  away  from  this  wonderful  hobby  because  they  burnt  their  fingers  on  the  first  try                

 
 I  don't  give  up  easily  .  I  must  tell  you  one  thing  important  may  be  that  will  give  u  a  clear  picture  of  my  patience  ...
 
 the  aquarium  u  see  there  was  built  4  times  again  and  again  following  leakages  Smile  ,  at  the  first  time  i  got  my  comp  short  circuited  Sad  ..
 
 along  with  some  house  hold  electronics  .  hope  i  wont  have  to  repeat  the  same  boring  process  of  cleaning  and  breaking  the  glass  to  re  bond  the  tank.
 
 I  didnt  know  my  tank  can  be  included  in  big  tank  list  Smile  .
 
 I  calculated  the  tank  volume  ,  its  not  approx  300  as  i  said  it  to  be  its  
 
 used
 http://www.firsttankguide.net/calculator.php
 
 
                                                 
Quote:                

 You  provided  measurements  in  centimeters:
 Width:  140cm  (55.12")
 Height:  68cm  (26.77")
 Depth:  25cm  (9.84")
 Your  tank's  volume  is  238,000.0  cubic  centimeters  or  238.0  liters,  which  is  approximately  61.2  U.S.  gallons.
                 

 
 I  used  gravel  and  sand  for  substrate..what  can  this  be  replaced  with?
 
 talking  abt  laterite  ,  i  am  from  a  place  well  known  for  laterite  quarries  ...
 
 Btw  sorry  for  not  introducing  my  self  ...I  am  Vijay   Smile

 2-3mm  sized  gravel  over  laterite  will  grow  E  parvula,  ADA  Amazonia  II  will  grow  it  better.
 
 68cm  is  tall  for  a  planted  tank,  you  will  need  High  intensity  lights  {Probably  Metal  halides}  to  light  up  the  bottom  well.
