Sorry boss, I did not buy the ballast or the tubes. I bought the CO2 set, tank and the light hood wit 8 tubes in a very cheap rate. But t5 ballast cost around 250 bucks and the t5 tubes 250 bucks each.

Thanks rajan, was waiting for your comments. Tomorrow I'll buy one more DHG TC and plant in the foreground.

The woods and rocks were displayed for ease of suggestion from the members. And were immediately removed when negative comments started coming.


Well, I feel woods and rocks are required in a scape as well. Not just for the good looks but as far as I know rocks leach and make water hard but are homes to BBs. On the other hand wood softens the water and helps mosses grow bringing the parameters to an equlibrium. But my friend, I always felt its not easy to deal with them... atleast not at the expense of the aesthetics of the tank!
Cheers,
Rajan Bhaumik

There is a tiny rock and a tiny wood where anubias and pinatifida are respectively attached.
