 Folks,
 
 Here  is  the  update  of  my  tank  which  is  85  days  old.
 
 Tank  started  :  13  Nov  07
 
 The  tank  has  no  CO2  for  the  past  two  months  as  my  CO2  regulator  conked.
 
 Experts  can  you  suggest  if  I  should  use  the  CO2  again  or  should  leave  it  as  is.
 
 Any  other  suggestions  to  improve  it  would  be  much  appreciated.
 
 Regards,
 Prem

 Gr8  start.  In  a  few  weeks  time  it  will  be  even  greater,  once  the  plants  start  growing.  Check  out  the  link  below  for  some  DIY  pointers.  I  used  the  tips  and  look  what  happened  to  my  plants......I  have  to  trim  them  now.

 Thank  you  every  one  for  your  comments.
 
 I  am  thrilled.  
 
 Tim  -  I  don't  dose  nor  use  CO2  for  my  tank.  I  just  stick  with  regular  water  changes.  I  do  have  a  pressurised  CO2  unit  which  I  am  not  using  as  I  am  fed  up  of  trimming  the  plants.
 
 I  plan  to  use  the  pressurised  unit  for  my  next  mini  tank  project.
 
 Regards,
 Prem

 Hi  Prem
 
   Fantastic  Job!!  The  tank  looks  wonderful!   Thumb Up  
   Well  Sacped  and  very  healthy  tank.  The  plant  in  the  front,  Nuphur  or  lily,  can't  make  out,  move  it  in  the  mid  ground  of  the  tank  cause  once  it  starts  to  take  off  it  will  grow  taller  blocking  the  plants  at  the  back.
    Also  please  donot  stop  using  CO2  in  the  tank,  in  low  Co2  conditions  the  tank  is  always  prone  to  a  algea  outbreak.  So  be  careful  on  that  front.
 Once  again  a  great  tank!  Well  done!!!!  Cheer  
 
 Regards
   Harshal

 Thanks  Harshal.
 
 All  credit  goes  to  your  lighting  fixture.  Apart  from  the  lights  there  is  nothing  special  in  that  tank.  I  do  weekly  50  %  water  changes.  I  am  planning  on  using  my  CO2  unit  for  my  next  tank.  I  will  observe  the  tank  for  another  month  and  make  changes  if  required.
 
 Thanks  for  all  the  inputs.
 
 Regards,
 Prem

 Hi  Prem:
 
 Tank  looks  great.  Please  start  the  Co2  and  the  Micros  Immediately  to  prevent  plants  getting  starved.  Co2  come  in  immediately  unless  you  want  some  rare  moss  like  what  I  have  in  my  tank  taking  over  your  setup.
