Thanks everyone! Yeah, I'm hoping that it's going to look really great when I finish. I've learned a quite a bit about plants from my 15 gal. and I plan to apply it all in this tank. Don't worry, I will post plenty of pics when I set it up more

Here's a pic of the tank with the sand in it, and some pics of the AWESOME piece of driftwood that will be in it. I can't believe I found that thing, it's pretty rare to find a whole stump like that, especially one that is the right size and not rotting! Unfortunately it was too big to boil, so I had to bake it instead.

There probably won't be any more pics until after Christmas because I have to wait to get most of the supplies (I convinced my mom to get them for me as Christmas presents because I didn't have enough $$). But, by that time it will have plants, rocks, and driftwood so it will be much more interesting. I can't wait!!

Luckily Christmas is just around the corner!! Looking forward to seeing the pics. If it's as nice as your 15gal (which btw is gorgeous) I'm preparing to be knocked out by it!

Very nice piece of wood. I lucked you myself. My wife rolled her eyes when she asked what I wanted for birthday/Christmas and only asked for fish hardware but she's gone ahead and indulged me.

Ok, I know everyone loves pictures, but I don't have any until Christmas. I do however have a list of plants. I'm going easy plants because I just want it to look nice and grow in fast without having trouble with more difficult species. I want to know if you all think this will be enough. Keep in mind that the left corner will be most densely planted, then sloping down into a nice "lawn" with a small sandy area for feeding the loaches. Also, the left corner is going to have a pile of rocks and that piece of driftwood. What I want to know is if this amount of plants sounds about right.

-Dwarf Harigrass (for the lawn): 3 pots - I'm supposed to separate it and plant small sections separately right?
-Cabomba Green: 1 bunch which is 10 stems where I buy from
-Anacharis- 1 bunch
-Cryptocoryne Wendtii Bronze: 2 pots

And lastly I CAN'T WAIT FOR CHRISTMAS!!!!!!! Although, my plants won't ship until Jan. 5th...booo...why don't you open sooner bayleesfishees :(

But, in the meantime I'll be getting more fish for my 15 gallon so I guess it won't be TOO bad. Maybe I'll post some pictures of them here as well.

Alright, so I changed my mind about the anacharis. I just am not loving the look of it even though it is super easy to grow.

So, I picked out hygrophila augustifolia instead.

Does anyone have any advice concerning whether these are good plant choices for my tank? The tank will have 60 watts of light supplied by 2 30 watt 6700K T12 bulbs. Wow, that's a lot of numbers 0_0 It will also have DIY CO2 supplied by a 2 or 4 liter soda bottle. I need advice on this as well please. For that amount of lighting do you think I should go with the 2 liter or the 4 liter? I am also planning to do root tabs. I have some flourish, but the last time I used it I just got algae so I think I'll stay away unless it's absolutely necessary.

So, I don't know if anyone is watching this thread anymore, but all imput is welcome. Then we can get to the good stuff - PICTURES!
