 Athreyan,
 
 Keluthi  has  just  extrapolated  his  experience  on   a  advice.  That's  what  most  people  do.
 
 As  someone  great  I  knew  said  "  We  all  like  to  hear  what  we  want  to  hear".
 
 But  Keluthi  is  also  not  sure,  and  that's  where  we  have  to  put  that  bit  of  extra  effort  to  convince  him  that  direct  Sunlight  is  bad  for  any  Aquarium.
 And  that's  what  we  IAH'ians  do  to  the  best  of  our  capability  Very Happy  
 
 P.S:  let's  not  extrapolate  our  experience  with  a  member  in  a  different  thread,  to  all  the  threads  on  IAH  Thumb Up  
 
 Regards,

 my  apologies.  I  didn't  mean  to  be  rude.  all  I  meant  to  ask  was  if  you've  finalised  the  plan,  then  why  get  suggestions.  you  can  just  publish  it  as  a  journal.
 
 rasik  ji,   I  didn't  refer  to  any  other  thread   Sad  ...  sorry  if  I  did  by  mistake

Not  just  algae.  With  the  oncoming  infamous  summer  of  namma  Tamizhnaadu...  There's  bound  to  be  major  heat  build  up.                

 Keluthi,  a  very  valid  point.  Have  you  thought  about  this?

 Hi
 You  can  add  some  computer  fan  to  reduce  the  temperature  of  the  water  for  coming  summer.
 All  the  Best.

 Keluthi  as  long  a  you  have  means  to  control  light  and  heat  from  the  sun  for  your  advantage  that  is  good.
 Also  please  keep  this  thread  updated  about  the  progress....if  it  work  out  you  will  be  proving  a  great  deed(We  can  control  sunlight  but  the  process  will  be  very  complicated  and  you  cannot  be  sure  that  you  have  a  clear  sky  all  the  day.  So  you  need  a  system  that  keeps  a  translucent  screen  on  a  sunny  day  and  increases  its  transparency  when  there  are  clouds.Also  the  system  should  have  back  up  lights  which  kicks  in  on  a  rainy  day  or  very  cloudy  day.  I  think  you  get  the  point).
 
 As  per  my  knowledge  the  reason  why  people  don't  depend  on  sunlight  is  due  to  the  difficulty  in  controlling  it.
 Don't  underestimate  the  power  of  sun.....Go  for  a  collection  trip  and  you  will  find  in  nature  the  most  successful  thing  is  algae
 
 In  my  experience  if  your  tank  gets  room  light(I  meant  indirect  sunlight)....you  can  grow  anubias  in  it.
 I  have  a  nano  tank  with  only  pettites,nanagold,round  leaf  which  lives  only  with  the  normal  light  in  a  closed  room(I  mean  it  has  only  the  indirect  light  from  sun)....but  a  tank  with  direct  sunlight  means  algae
 
 @Garothman:  Unbelievably  awesome....You  rock  Rock On   Rock On

 @Athreyan,  nayak,  nair,  jabba:  Thank  you  very  much.
 
 @Athreyan:  Do  you  really  think  that  I'm  'sure...'?!  I'm  really  confused,  man..  I  was  planning  to  keep  a  Brichardi  tank,  but  my  wife  wants  a  planted  tank!  Oh  my  Goooosssshhhh....
 
 @Athreyan  &  nayak:  Yes,  I  know  about  the  summer  in  Thamizh  Naadu.  But,  in  Thanjaavur  it  is  always  fair!!  Even  in  Thiruchirappalli  which  is  58kms  from  here,  temperature  would  be  very  bad,  but  here  it  would  be  below  that  level.  Also,  we  have  a  portico  which  extends  around  9ft  from  the  tank  and  this  helps  to  prevent  the  sunlight  from  directly  hitting  the  tank.  The  tanks  gets  direct  sunlight  only  from  around  4:30pm  to  5:45/6pm.
 
 @nair:  Thank  you,  Sir.  Would  try  it  in  future,  if  needed.

 I  forgot  to  add  this...
 Even  if  I  get  algae,  I  think  I  would  get  some  benefits  from  it.  If  I'm  going  to  keep  a  Brichardis  tank,  they  would  graze  on  them,  isn't  it?!  And,  I'll  be  having  some  rocks  in  there  which  would  also  have  some  algae  growing  on  them...  The  cichlids  will  find  some  natural  food  to  eat..!  Aren't  Brichardis  herbivorous...?!(or  omnivore)  I  may  also  add  a  Pleco.  But,  I  know  it  would  not  help  in  completely  controling  the  algae,  I  still  have  to  work  on  it.
 On  the  otherhand,  if  I  keep  a  planted  tank,  I  would  get  some  algae  specialists  like  otos,  BNs  and  Shrimps,  which  may  help  to  control  algae  pretty  effectively.!!
 IMHO,  in  both  type  of  tanks,  having  algae  to  some  extent,  just  a  decent  amount,  would  give  a  more  natural  feeling,  but  I'll  definitely  keep  a  watch.
 Plz  tell  me,  am  I  completely  wrong  here..?!

 you  simply  can't  beat  algae  with  ottos  n  all.  better  to  go  with  cichlids  rather  than  plants  else  you  will  loose  interest  in  planted  hobby  forever  cause  of  algae  menace.

 Confusion  regarding  livestock  is  the  last  thing  you  have  to  worry  about.  I  was  referring  to  your  setup  vis-a-vis  your  placement,  sunlight,  heat  etc.
 
 well,  If  you're  convinced,  then  good  luck.
 
 Algae  is  not  always  a  bad  thing.  yes,  fish  will  eat  algae.  But  we  try  to  keep  our  tanks  algae  free  so  that  the  tanks  look  pretty.  I've  not  seen  a  good  looking  algae  farm.  And  in  a  planted  tank,  algae  will  compete  with  plants  for  nutrition.
