My first aquarium

I've had aquariums in my house my whole life while growing up.. now that I've moved out this is my first very own tank and I'm giving a planted tank a go.

I converted a red sea max 130 salt water tank that my mom had into a freshwater. I've got to replace the lights eventually but for the time being I'm gonna give it a go with what I have.

Here is my freshly planted tank, trying to start on the silent cycle.

Its a little cloudy from planting still.

Thanks all! The only fish I know for sure I want is glolight tetra. How many of those would work in my tank? It's a 29g tall tank. Keep in mind i'd like to get other fish as well.

Heres an update after 1 week. I can already see some growth in my java fern and my wisteria! Also my microsword is sending out a few runners! Its so exciting. I'll be getting my some fish this week too! Probably 8 or 9 glowlight tetra! I'm going to try to keep sort of a picture diary here so I can track my growth..maybe a picture every week.

That is a very nice layout, good work there. Yes, glowlights are fine, a group of 7-8 would be good.

Thanks!

So while I was picking up some flourish comprehensive from petsmart today, i walked over to the fish to have a look and they had Cochu tetra! 7.. so i got them all! I wanted some of these so bad but I couldnt find any sellers online! (at least I hope theyre cochu's, you never know with petsmart)

Heres a few pictures, they are so hard to take pics of..really fast!
