Started my 30 gallon over again... again.

Hello again!
After long weeks of looking at a mediocre tank I decided to upgrade. New lights, plants, filter, and substrate.

Lighting: Coralife T5HO fixture. 78 watts total.

Plants: Java fern, amazon sword, some sort of small sword, dhg, pennywort, anacharis, and kyote(? I believe it's called. I don't trust the plant pack names in certain stores.)

Substrate: don't recall the name but will look it up. From coporate name brand store.

Filter: Marineland C160

Started up yesterday.

Have some DHG in position to carpet. The rest I put into little bundles. I know this Isn't the way but Isn't hoping it will almost be like a Bush outline. Experimenting is something I like to do.

Co2 is a beautiful thing.

Letting it cycle for about a week and a half then adding two ottos I have.

Probably wait a week or so for plants to really set in, then slowly add about 6-8 neon tetras and my 8 member school of peppered corydoras.

Now just have to wait for it to grow!
