Welcome to TFK - and BF. Fantastic to have you here, I'm really looking forward to seeing your tank(s) grow and thrive - which I'm sure they will!!!
Planting a tank, for a beginner like me, has proven to be very easy - not nearly as difficult as many make it out to be. The Planted Tank guide written by Byron is (in my opinion) an excellent way to get started in the simplest way possible. Plenty of room for growth and change from there as you gain experience!

Don't forget tank #3. . . you'll need a quarantine tank. . . *giggle*

and so it begins. . . ^___^

get rid of the furniture, sit on a bean bag,and then you have plenty room
for more fish tanks.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

@Willow: thank you very much. yes, that's me, wedding cake on my nose and all :)
@Chesh: thanks! I just found that post a little bit ago, very inspiring. I'm surfing the classifieds for a 75gallon tank in another tab.
@SeaHorse: I think I'll boil up a few diff. veggies tonight and give Sucky a tiny buffet... see if he's drawn to any one thing. I'll go snag an assortment of pleco noms @ PetCo, too, to see what interests him.
