What  gravel  do  you  have,  is  it  between  2-3  mm  it  is  okay  for  plants.  
                 
 
 
 Yes...
 
 Returning  to  the  basic  thing  how  many  plants  you  think  i  should  have  there?                

 
 plant  as  much  as  fast  growing  common  varieties.  let  them  grow  and  be  out  of  algae  problems.  Then  think  about  rescaping  with  good  plants  and  plants  of  your  choice  or  slow  growing  ones.  But  do  not  plan  for  discus  before  100  days.  I  did  not  heed  this  particular  advise  from  fellow  members  and  i  am  keeping  my  hands  crossed  and  monitoring  closely  for  eventualities.

 Aks,
 
 When  the  tank  is  new,  it  is  advisable  to  plant  stem  plants  -  Hygrophila  species.  I  have  had  good  success  with  crytocorynes.  Generally  stem  plants  are  fast  growing  plants  and  so  will  help  in  controlling  the  algae.
 
 Please  make  sure  to  have  at  least  80%  of  the  tank  area  covered  with  plants.  Once  your  tank  is  running  for  about  2  months  without  any  algae,  you  can  start  your  aquascaping  and  use  the  plants  that  you  want.
 
 Singapore  is  the  best  place  to  source  good  quality  plants,  so  If  you  have  any  friends  visiting  S'pore,  ask  them  to  get  the  plants  you  like.
 
 You  will  have  plenty  of  links  and  useful  information  in  this  site  which  will  help  you  gain  knowledge  on  the  different  plant  species
 
 Regards
 Bala

 Hi  aka
   
       Well  the  dosage  is  dependent  on  a  lot  of  other  parameters.  I'll  let  you  know  what  i  follow  For  the  1st  month  of  setttin  up  the  tank  i  donot  dose  anything.  Then  I  dose  in  a  ratio  of  KNo3:K2So4  at  1:4(in  ppm).  Simply  because  your  target  value  is  5ppm  for  KNo3  and  20ppm  for  K2So4.  This  is  just  to  give  you  an  idea  as  sometimes  you  might  have  to  dose  more  of  one  compound.  MgSo4  depends  on  how  hard  is  the  water  from  your  source.  If  it  is  very  hard  than  donot  dose  MgSo4.  Also  in  crease  your  dosage  in  steps  donot  try  to  achive  the  target  values  in  a  single  dosing.  You  will  have  more  algea  then  plants  growing   Smile  
 
      To  understand  things  more  clearly  go  thru  the  two  sites  i  have  told  you  abt.
 
    Regards
       Harshal.

 Wanted  to  add  one  more  thing  what  i  have  told  you  are  general  guidelines.Since  no  2  tanks  will  have  the  same  parameter  it  is  not  possible  to  have  1  set  idea  that  will  work  for  all.You  will  finally  have  to  see  what  works  best  for  your  tank,  mostly  thru  trial  and  error.
 
      Regards  
          Harshal.
