Looking good! Your lighting conditions will depend on what type of plants will thrive in your aquarium. Vallisneria americana or V. spiralis would reach the surface in your tank with no problem as long as they have enough light. Most stem plants will easily reach the surface as well and they can grow quite quickly. I have to trim my moneywort weekly to stop it from covering the whole surface! Crypt's do well in low light, and a red one adds some nice color contrast. Pennywort makes for a good floating plant as well, and my juvenile mollies love to hide in it. Browse through people's tanks on here for the ones you like, I'm sure they'll be happy to help :)

Here's a video of my tank when it was freshly planted, I'll have to get another one up now since everything has grown a lot!

Great work britny, glad to see you decided to lose the castle and get real plants! You will love your tank more each day and a feeling of satisfaction will overtake you when you will see those plants growing.
Glad you took this step!

I expect nothing. I fear no one. I am free.
Excuse my bad and rusty english but i did not have your luck to be born or to live in a country where the main language is english.
P.S I am not rude, i just hate stupidity and act accordingly.

Wait, are those real plants or not? Some looks real and some looks fake...

He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."
