I ordered some wendtii bronze from knuggs for my goldfish tank so I plan on planting some of the smaller ones in the back. I'm going to try to have a moss carpet area too, I ordered peacock moss from him. And maybe a small lotus in the corner. I have some in my ten gallon floating on their bulbs.
Yea, my petsmart has mopani wood in the reptile section, it leeches tannins like crazy in the begining but purigen will take care of that!
Is that osmocote plus caps?
What size is that tank?
I might be wrong but that seems like way too much for that tank.
I use 8 or 10 in my 29g and my plants are super healthy.
Nice start tho.
My dos pennies,

Reason: Is not I, sorry
Woo boy, is that mopani wood? I got a piece at petsmart forever ago. It lived in a 3 gallon forever, and it leached tannins foreeeveeer, as in it never stopped :P. I had that up and running for months and months.
Hope you fair better than I!
Looks good by the way I am pumped to see people trying this tank out.
I have a huge piece in my fifty five gallon, I love the stuff, it sinks and never floats, I don't think it leaches that many tannins anymore. Pluss the texture is killer.
I plan on using purigen in this tank to try and control the tannin level though. Im really loving the dimensions, I planned on this being a shrimp tank, but I would love to have this Pygmy cories in there too!
The mopani I have in my ten gallon betta tank and my 55 goldfish tank have both been dremmel sanded so all the sharper parts are dull. Plus I attached lots of plants to the one in my 10 g betta tank to help too.
Yea, I filled it last night, I have yet to check on it cuz I didn't spend the night at home last night. I'll take pic to show the tannins.
I'm really hoping it turns out good!
