Last night I bought a 29gallon kit, but when I got it home it was one that someone had used and then returned. The hood wasn't there, the bulb was burnt out, the bottom of the tank was scratched to hell, it was the wrong color (the fake oak stuff), and it was covered in calcium deposits. Needless to say I am not pleased, and it's in the back of my car for an exchange after class.
If the lillies sprout I will put them in the 29g, since it's a good bit taller than the 10g. I've heard that dwarf lillies look best in low light, but you more than likely have a better light spectrum than the 8 or 9 month old 15watt tube that came with my tank. Once I get the tank set up and on it's way to cycling I plan on getting some java fern from the LFS. Should I get the plants before/during cycling or when I start stocking my tank? (this isn't going to be a fishless cycle)
