Thanks everyone for their suggestion. I may give a drawing a try but I am very certain that I will end up getting them planted then changing my mind. This will be my first time to plant any type of aquarium plant. So, I am concerned about the plants that root in to the substrate. Is it ok to replant a few times? No harm will be done to the plants?

Oh, do you all prefer to start with the foreground or background first?

I look forward to posting up a post later on about my progress of my tank with some pictures.

I always do the background first as those are usually your bigger plants. As far as planting and removing and planting again. If you are talking about doing it in the same day I don't think there will be a problem. If you wait to long and the plants settled in some might not like it to much. Some plants like crypts don't like to be moved or messed with and will often "melt" ( the leaves will fall of but as long as you don't move the roots they will start growing back). I don't have any of those plants in my tank. I had one in a tank once and couldn't get it to grow but I can't get anything to grow in that tank. LoL My other tank has a few different kinds and I move then alot LoL. I have rearranged the tank like 4x in 4 months. All my plants are fine and growing like crazy.
