Yeh, got 4 plants in total, 3 large that i've grouped together, and 1 small, just to help proportion the tank. I've included 2 picstures, 1 with the white light on, and 1 with the blue light, i also got an easter island head staue and black and white gravel.

yeh, you like it? I added in Filter Start, to help the start up process, and I added Tap Safe to the water I put in. I rinsed the gravel before that went in, and have fitted the plants, filter, and delta thermo, so I just kinda have to wait now, and monday or tuesday I'll take a sample to Pets at Home to have them test the water, and if they give the go, I'll buy fish then.
