Much to my surprise my plants were here this afternoon when I got home. Guess thats the good thing about living close to the supplier huh. I got them all in and I think I ended up with a little more than I thought I would have. By the time this stuff gets established, I think Im going to be very heavily planted. Not what I was looking for, but I think it should look nice onces its all grown. And I can always cut back or remove things as it becomes too crowded. I dont have nayh pics just yet as the tank is cloudy from moving all the gravel around. As soon as it clears up some I will get some pics up. Some of the things I had expceted to come in smaller were quite large and a couple things I expected to be larger were a little smaller than I thought they would be.

Did you end up going with the hairgrass, or something else around the driftwood?
I ended up going with Dwarf Sagittaria Subulata. It turned out to be something different than I had expected. I thought it was going to be a short plant, three inches according to the site, but was closer to probably 6. I put it in anyway, but just not quite so centered to the wood. The original thought was to plant it directly in front of the wood and let it form its "carpet" across the front of the tank. It may end up coming out and putting the Hairgrass in. It was suggested by a few folks here but I didnt go with it because it looked like it likes lots of light and fine substrate. Neither of which is in abundance in my tank.
