Thought I would give a quick update. I picked up my tank the other day and a friend gave me his light strip, while we were out shopping we came across a petsmart that was redoing their fish department and selling all their plants for under 2 dollars each, so needless to say I came home with a bunch. It took forever to get the tank set up, and some of the plants from petsmart were extras thrown in and I just planted them not knowing if they needed to be.. (so if I need to move some plants around let me know lol). I did get some Wisteria
because it was cheap and I figured if it died I would try the other one (which none of the stores I was in had... we went to 5 different stores haha) I have a better light bulb on the way (life glo) and some cichlid stones and I have a piece of driftwood soaking all of which will be added to the tank eventually, for now there are some stones and MTS to help aerate the substrate. Oh and a little bag of gravel from an established aquarium to help out (my filter is also in the mail). Tomorrow I will be putting the trim around the top so I can start using a glass lid :)
thanks again for all your help, I hope I did you guys proud!
