    Hi All,

    I started growing plants in natural sunlight and here's how it looks 1.5 months after I started it:

    34117746902_71217b2969_h.

    Plants added: Anubias Barteri, Anubias Nana, Hygrophilia Pinnatifida, Tenellus, Cryptocoryne Sp., Reinckii Mini, Ludwigia Palustris, Staurogyne Brown, Ludwigia Arcuata, Ludwigia Glandulosa. Whew! That's it.
    Substrate: garden soil topped with JBL Manado.
    Lights: about 12 Hrs of Sunlight ;)

    Hope you all like it!

    Cheers,

    Karthik

    Hi Guys,

    This is how the tub looks after a month of neglect- I had some hectic work related travel!

    35150395175_6c5a325399_b.

    Thankfully, there is no algae bloom. Due to the filter failing and absolutely no fertiliser dosing, the stem plants seem to have melted off. Although I feel lack of water change is the main culprit.
    I am happy to see the other plants do well. I plan to rescape this; will keep updating.

    Cheers,

    Karthik

    Do you have any plans or is it still in the "Think Tank" mode.
