 Hi  prasantkmrs,
 
 Do  update  your  location.
 
 Now  coming  to  your  first  planted  tank.  There  are  lots  of  improvements  that  could  be  done  to  the  tank.  Before  that  please  do  share  us  the  tank  details  so  that  members  could  suggest  you  in  a  better  way.
 
 Tank  Size:
 Substrate  used:
 Lighting  used  (wattage):
 Fertilization  used  (if  any)  :  Yes/No  (If  yes,  which  ferts)
 CO2  (Pressurized,  DIY):  Yes/No
 
 I  see  that  you  have  used  river  sand.  Is  there  any  fertile  soil  used?

 Hi  Prasant,
 
 Its  a  good  looking  tank,  would  like  to  add  some  of  the  points  that  might  help  you.
 
 You  need  liquid  fertilization,  as  your  soil  is  only  mud  soil  that  will  not  contain  enough  nutrient.  Buy  some  normal  Macro  and  Micro  liquid  fertilizer  for  aquarium,  you  may  search  in  online  if  that  wont  available  with  your  LFS.
 
 You  have  to  increase  plant  load  in  your  tank,   or  else  algae  may  catch  up  and  will  do  lots  of  damage.
 
 You  are  not  using  any  CO2  system,  but  you  may  know  any  kind  of  CO2  injection  helps  plants  growth,  so  I  would  ask  you  to  go  for  a  sugar,yeast  DIY  CO2,  thats  quite  effective  if  you  cant  afford  pressurized  system.
 
 I  am  not  able  to  see  any  filtration  in  your  tank,  hope  you  have  a  good  internal  power  filtration,  because  this  is  also  a  important  factor  in  planted  tank.
 
 Keep   us  update  with  your  progress.

 This  has  been  so  long  and  tested  in  many  years  successfully  by  our  hobbyist.  You  can  see  lots  and  lots  of  post  in  IAH  regarding  DIY  ferts.
 
 There  are  different  ways  of  doing  DIY  ferts:
 
 PMDD  (Poor  man's  dosing  drops)
 EI  (Estimate  Index)
 All-in-One  Solution
 
 etc...and  so  on...
 
 You  can  read  many  posts  in  Macro  and  Micro  Fertilisers
