Since you adding ferts to your tank with these plates ...I would recommend you to buy as much plants as you can right away .. so that they will absorb all those nutrients thus leaving nothing for algae. Also make sure that depending on what plants you getting to get proper lighting.
Thank you =D. I have enough to fill the tank but I think I will use less and I won't cover the entire tank, I have a Co2 type diffuser for my 8 gallon that I may be able to use for my 29 gallon as well (I've heard that it can help reduce algae levels)
I will be buying the plants two days after ( or should I buy them sooner?)
