Found driftwood yesterday, ordered a filter and bought my substrate. Collecting rocks and stones this week and soaking driftwood. Also decided on a stain for the stand. Found an awesome LFS,

Eheim Classic 250 (ordered)
Mopani Driftwood (soaking)
Eco-Complete (in waiting)

Fauna (planned)
emerald cories
praecox rainbows
albino bristlenose
powder blue dwarf gourami

Still trying to figure out the lighting. I plan to DIY a covered hood to match the stand eventually so I would really like to go cheap on what I have right now. Thoughts on that anyone?

Hoping to get some plants in by next weekend.
