 I'm using the custom made CO2 generator and small inner water filter.
Its actually helping the nutrients and CO2 to distribute.

Nil, I just started this hobby and learning. I don't even know the
names of the plants that I'm using.
Unfortunately the seller doesn't know either. I could figure out one
species i.e Hemianthus micranthemoides

Water source is ground water. Actually hard. Don't know Gh kh value.

I'm using Do!Aqua liquid conditioner be green solution

The tank size is small. As I said, I wanted to try learn and grow
slowly. Less than
2 feet wide. Water capacity is just 10 gallons.

Yes I'm using a small inner water filter with ADA's BIO RIO bacteria
in it. It is helping
in circulation of co2. WIll try to send in link of the aquarium for better idea.

Thanks for all the suggestions.
