Well, I'll give a little background info about this project.
My fish keeping started about 2 years ago. I had a betta in a 2.5 gallon petco tank, then I upgraded to a 5 gallon. Over the course of 3 months, it went high tech. Like many others, I had envisioned a carpet of HC, and was completely unsure of how to do it. 3 months, 200 some dollars later, I have that HC carpet. My dad finally gave in and allowed me to get a larger tank. I knew I wanted the 60P but didn't want to throw out the money for it, so I ended up with the Mr. Aqua counterpart. I am planning on a Dutch layout with many different textures, colors, and leaf shapes.
I have come up with this list through the help of many on the Aquarium Advice forum. Weather they know it or not
