I recently changed my substrate and didn't add root tablets to the vals. they started turning yellowish and brownish. I added a few and now they are starting to grow and looking better even found a new runner today. I will say this I can't grow them in my 29 gallon tank. I have tried twice now this been my second time. For that matter I don't have much success growing plants in that tank.

Well yesterday I finally got my plants from Sweet aquatics. I have a couple of pics of the plants and their condition on this thread http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/a...-plants-81584/ I will not get into that anymore as the situation has been taken care of.
I plan on going to the Local petstore and see what I can come up with for plants as I get paid tomorrow and will have a few extra $ (through not much and I am still waiting on my refund). What I can't find I will order online (not sure where as of right now am thinking from plantedaquariumscentral.com)

I just had time today to go to one store today but I got some Pygmy chain sword and some Wisteria. I got the Wisteria floating and some of it planted. I plan on going to some more store this weekend. Heres some pictures.

Looking through sweetaquatic's website, I see a ton of stuff seems to be 'sold out'. It's almost underwhelming seeing as I've heard so much about this place. Glad you finally got your stuff though, tank looks pretty sweet so far.

29g Saltwater Reef
10g Freshwater 'vase'

Some moss on the rocks would look good.

I have been thinking of that. Thought about trying some willow moss or flame moss. Just not sure how well it would grow in my tank.

I am hoping my pygmy chain sword will take off on that one side. The jungle val is starting to take off like I want it to. I am thinking of getting some slate rock and covering it in moss.
