 Hi  Friends,
 
 Posting  something  here  after  a  very  very  long  gap..  Lots  of  things  kept  me  busy...
 
 So  here  is  the  story...
 
 When  I  purchased  my  new  flat,  I  had  decided  that  I  need  to  find  a  right  place  to  keep  my  planted  tank.  And  here  is  where  I  decided  that  I  would  keep  my  tank.  
 
 
 
 And  I  got  the  plumbing  for  the  inlet  and  outlet  hard  plumbed  near  the  side  wall.  Since  the  duct  was  running  to  the  side  of  the  wall,  it  was  easy  for  me  to  ask  the  builder  to  do  a  hard  plumbing.  Water  change  would  be  easier  for  me  now.  The  water  drain  is  connected  to  the  water  drain  outlet  of  the  building.  So  I  just  need  to  open  the  valve  for  the  water  to  drain  out.  Inlet  is  taken  from  my  bathroom  where  I  plan  to  keep  a  dedicated  RO  storage  tank  permanently.  (Yet  to  commission  it)  
 
 Fortunately  the  builder  made  a  change  in  the  layout  of  the  door,  by  which  I  got  more  space  near  the  tank.  As  soon  as  I  open  my  front  door  the  person  would  see  my  tank..   Cheering  
 
 And  it  took  3  years  for  my  house  to  be  completed..  Finally  started  making  the  preparation  for  the  new  start.  Got  some  good  number  of  Ryuoh  stones  from  my  very  good  friend.  Decided  to  do  an  acid  wash  of  the  stone  to  remove  the  calcium  deposits  from  the  surface  of  the  rocks.
 
 The  process  started.
 
 
 
 Used  4lts  of  acid  to  have  the  rocks  completely  immersed  in  the  bucket.
 
 
 
 To  my  good,  my  neighboring  flats  were  not  occupied.  So  was  able  to  do  this  task  completely  out-of-reach  of  kids.
 
 Rocks  taken  out  of  acid..  Kept  in  a  big  tub..
 
 
 
 Total  mess...
 
 
 
 Luckily  no  one  comes  to  our  floor  since  most  of  the  apartments  are  still  not  occupied...  I  am  saved...
 
 Rocks  washed  thoroughly
 
 
 
 
 
 And  the  final  rock  arrangement  started..  I  need  to  agree  and  I  am  not  a  good  scaper...   Sad   Sad   Sad  
 
 Found  it  very  very  difficult  to  scape  with  rocks..  Finally  had  to  do  away  with  this  scape..
 
 
 
 Scaped  finally.
 
 
 
 Just  before  filling  the  water.
 
 
 
 After  filling  the  tank.  Took  4hrs  +  to  fill  the  tank.  And  I  could  see  the  result..  Very  less  cloudiness  in  the  tank.  Feeling   Very Happy  
 
 
 
 More  to  come...
