    Hi Allwissend,
    My next step is reading as much as I can, coz I'm newbie to the hobby of aquascaping. But still don't understand from when to start, so I'm reading random topics.
    I prefer Low tech planted tank with small usage of Co2.
    I have nono tank with some mosses, and Cabomba. Also have DIY CO2 cetric acid. So I'm in the learning phase.

    I would recommend reading Takashi Amano's Nature Aquarium World. A good read to introduce yourself into aquascaping!

    Hi Sayed,
    in that case I would recommend you start by reading the stickies on the forum, also read the articles published here https://barrreport.com/forums/articles.4/
    Reading some journals of aquariums like the one you have in mind will help you get some ideas of what works and what not, see how others have dealt with problems etc. You can spend hours reading some journals here : https://barrreport.com/forums/articles.4/
    And in general about EI http://www.barrreport.com/forum/barr-report/estimative-index/117-the-estimative-index-of-dosing-or-no-need-for-test-kits

    Welcome to the community and glad to have you with us. @Allwissend & @Otocinclus gave some material to read. I'll post a few articles I have bookmarked that helped me a lot. In the 2nd link check out some of the other articles on Advanced Planted Tank/The 2hr Aquarist. Let me know if these links are allowed

    Thats a series of three books which are out of print and can be quite expensive. But there are usually some available on Amazon...
    You could also consider Amano's - Nature Aquarium Complete Works 1985-2009 - which basically are the highlights of the previous books.
    And it's still in print, as far as I know, so it should be easier to get hold of at a reasonable price.
    For example...UK Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/0793806496/ref=tmm_hrd_new_olp_sr?ie=UTF8&condition=new&qid=1532626737&sr=8-1-fkmr0

    No problem at all. Glad I was able to help a bit. Hopefully that 10g will be up and running with a moderate plant load sooner than later. I learned the hard way at first but with failure come knowledge. At least that's how I look at it
