 Hi  there,  first  question  :-)
 
 So  I  have  a  40x13x18  inch  tank,  the  idea  is  to  be  planted  and  checking  what  will  grow  and  what  won't.
 
 I  bought  SunSun  ADE  900c  LED  lights  which  says  60W  on  it  (there  is  no  lumen  rating  or  PAR  values  available  on  net).  I  am  not  sure  if  this  is  enough.  Here  is  what  I  found,  the  rotala  rotundifolia  hi  red  seems  to  be  growing  (needle  leaves  with  red  tint  started  developing  in  about  3  weeks).  The  substrate  I  must  say  is  pretty  inert  (like  about  5  years  old).  Have  Co2,  1  bubble  per  sec.
 
 Is  this  fixture  any  good  ?   Also,  is  there  a  cheat  sheet  which  is  straight  forward  for  the  off-the  shelf  light  fixtures  ?

 It  should  be  enough,  they  are  quite  effective  and  good  lights.
 In  the  current  Indian  market  there  is  nothing  as  successful  as  SunSun  ADS/ADE  so  you  might  not  really  have  tough  choice  to  make.

 Appreciate  your  time  Saikumar.  I  guess  this  is  the  best  for  now  unless  we  start  custom  building.  I  am  planning  on  a  4  feet  tank  as  well,  with  ads  1050c  lights.  I  hope  I  get  it  to  carpet  at  least  with  hair  grass.  Will  update.

 You're  welcome.  Bad  thing  about  custom  builds  is  the  high  costs,  warranty  and  looks.
 1050  should  be  good,  people  recommend  ADS  over  ADE  for  better  intensity.  It  surely  must  be  more  than  sufficient  to  grow  majority  of  plants  in  our  hobby.
 
 Do  share  some  pics  when  you  get  a  chance  of  your  40"  tank.

 Here  is  how  it  looks.
 
 The  first  one  is  4  years  back  -  when  the  soil  was  new  and  DIY  co2,  with  T5's
 
 https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-Hll7ZJpmlrePYrmy83dgUB0WKrDVMeftQ
 
 
 The  second  one  is  as  of  now  -  taken  in  mobile..  the  soil  is  pretty  much  useless.

 Hello  friends,  as  a  follow  up  question.  I'm  setting  up  a  new  tank  next  week,  would  you  help  see  if  anything  odd  out  of  place  ?
 
 Tank  -  48x18x18.
 
 Substrate  -  ada  amazonia  soil  (1  bag,  just  at  bottom)  and  tropica  plant  soil  (most  bags)  -  the  thought  process  was  not  to  have  a  full  ammonia  bloom  as  I  read  before.
 
 Scape:-  Dragon  stone  (big  ones,  and  small  ones  -  thinking  canyon  :-)  )
 
 Co2  -  pressurized.
 
 Lights  -  SunSun  ADS-1050c  (80w  in  wattage).
 
 Plants:-  (  have  ordered  all)  -  I'm  not  sure  about  the  light  needs,  but  wanted  denser  planting  in  one  go.
 
  Background:-
  Limnophila  Aromatica  (Purple) (15)  
    Ludwigia  Inclinata  var  Cuba  (10)
    Ludwigia  Arcuata (15)  
  Rotala  Rotundifolia  Red  -  bulk(200  nos)  
    Rotala  Rotundifolia  Green  -  bulk(200  nos)  
    Rotala  Rotundifolia  Hi  Red  (50)  
    Alternanthera  Reineckii   (15)
   
  MidGround:-
    Staurogyne  Repens  (10)  
    Ludwigia  palustris  
       Alternanthera  Reineckii  mini  (10)  -  not  too  sure  with  the  lighting  I  have.  
      
      ForeGround:-
  Hemianthus  Micranthemoides  monte  carlo  (bulk)-4  Nos  
 
  For  rocks:-
  Java  Moss   
    Java  Fern  
 
 Post  initial  weeks  -  ferts  with  DI  and  do  have  some  NPK  from  Seachem  as  well.
 
 Appreciate  your  time  and  valuable  feedback..
 
 Cheers,  Rajesh  T  Sivanandan

 Sounds  like  a  good  plan.  Start  fertilizing  after  two  weeks  of  regular  large  water  changes.  CO2  at3-4  bps  depending  on  your  diffuser.  For  NPK  switch  to  EI  ferts,  it  will  be  more  economical  for  a  large  tank  in  the  long  run.  Micros  you  can  continue  with  Seachem  or  CSMB  if  available

 Thanks  Mortis.  Appreciate  you  looking  at  it.  The  plants  just  arrived  and  I  have  planted  them  all.  Looks  dense  for  now  :-)
 
 Oh  yeah,  I  have  EI  ferts  as  well  (Procured  from  Shreejith)  -  will  be  using  that  on  a  frequent  basis.

 Sure  Nidhi,  I'll  open  up  a  new  thread.
 
 Actually  that  stone  -  I  kept  it  that  way  to  create  a  triangular  pocket  for  S.  Repens  and  be  bushier  there.  Does  it  look  that  odd  ?  If  I  make  it  leaning  towards  right,  it  kind  of  falls  and  I  need  to  find  a  smaller  stone  (ran  out  of  the  whole  20  kilos':-)  )
