Talking 30g long project

So here is the scenario:

30g Long, currently has a Marineland Bio-wheel Emperor 400 (thinking of switching to an Aquaclear 70 - The Marineland is loud and obnoxious, and I have tond of spare media for AC70s) also has a Coralife twin 120v florescent light fixture.

Stock right now is a 7" Pleco (still need an accurate id on him, I think its a Royal, he was a rescue)

I want to add some easy plants as I've never done real plants before (is this a problem for a Pleco?) and some fun small fish stock to the tank. I want a busy community tank.

My purpose for this thread is to get feedback on plant options, filter options, and stock options and share the progress of this little project with pictures for you guys..

I was thinking I could make this a TFK community tank and leave it up to you guys what to do with it and post pics daily to share with you all.. maybe we could present options and vote on them and when we get three votes I will post a pic of the update etc.. thoughts?? That may not work, as this isn't exactly a "hot" topic for most of you, but it could be fun to share this project with you guys since I am so indecisive and new to anything involving plants.

Nice man I love 30 gallon tanks floor plan. If you want some easy plants to try I can send you some for free,you can pay the shipping, but I might look into the pleco as many can be really hard on plants.7 I like alor of filters but I must say the Aqua Clear is up there at the top of my list. But I also use the emperor and the aqion brand.

That would be super sweet!!

I did switch out the filter with an AC70 and put that Emperor 400 in a ten gallon lol.. its so ridiculous looking now.. There is also a AC30 on the 10g too.. more water in the filters than in the tank itself. its only temporary to keep the media alive while I make some power moves with my bigger projects.

I've done so much reading on planted tanks that I feel more dumb and hopeless now.. lol
