Thanks everybody!!
I will definitely shake the filter once I get home. The noise it makes is more like a vibration (and I checked that all rubber tabs are in place yesterday), and it didn't sound like air bubbles coming out. But I'll give it a try. It doesn't bug me, just I don't know what to expect from canister filter..

Should be virtually silent, unless it's touching something then it can make a vibrating noise.

Try to do 50 water change. When planting try having only 50% water in it. Easily for planting. Even off your soil in the front portion. Recommend repositioning your woods. Trying putting together in one corner. Add in some rocks for your scape.

Plants coming in today, I just HOPE I will make it in time to pick up from post office.

I tried to pick medium light plants, since I'm using only one Current Sat+ which I LOVE!!!!!
Here is the list:
  • Sword Vesuvius - will go in the far left corner to hide the intake
  • Hydrocotyle sibthorpioides
  • Crytocoryne Wendtii Red and Green
  • Anubias barteri - will be attached to bigger wood
  • Anubias barteri var nana - will be attached to smaller wood
  • Marsilea quadrifolia - as a carpet, I read it can be grown in medium light but slow, well I have time=))

My ultimate goal was to have Blyxa Japonica on the right side by the small wood, and Fissidens , I'm still looking for those

Great planting! Did you tie your anubias or did you use coral glue? In a few weeks I should have some plant trimmings I can share. (Just planted my tank the other day, added new pictures in the journal).

Yeah I went to Pisces - seems they have the best plants in the area. I like that they keep assassin snails in their tanks - doesn't guarantee 'no snails' ... but sure helps keep the numbers low.

About 2 weeks after initial planting everything seems to be growing good. Crypts melted and came back nice and healthy, pennywort looks decent and I really grown to like it. Anubias nana has 2 leaves coming.. The "carpet" seems to be growing very slow haha I've seen only 1 runner... Oh well I didn't expect it to grow fast.

On Saturday we put black background and a couple of new plants.. Cabomba, " blyxa japonica" and another stem I don't know the name. And I'm not sure I ended up with blyxa... I still want to add some dwarf sag to the left front.

Anyways here is picture
