It's official!! I started the tank up on Saturday!!
I ended up getting flourite for the substrate though... It really does'nt look bad. I went to a LFS and just grabbed any plants they had just to start the tank off. I will be surfing the SNS a whole lot in the next few weeks!!
I would take a pic for you guys and gals but it's pretty embarrasing to look at right now.
I am still pretty happy right now though!! Back home and the tank is running!!
