Yes, the dimensions of the tank were the reason I was willing to wait 6 weeks for the tank to come in (my LFS needed to special order it). However, it was well wortth it. I am quite happy with it.
The plants are all mailorder. The quality was really great.
The driftwood was a great find at a Sacramento area LFS. It's quite big and had the perfect shape (and it was only $30). I soaked it for ~4-5 weeks to get rid of most of the "tea color".
