So my plants arrived, went into work today (day off) to get the tank flooded and planted.

Here's the "just filled with water" shot:

The drift wood had long enough to dry out after sanitizing that it isn't water logged, had to weigh it down to keep it from floating away. Hopefully it water logs over the weekend and I can take the silly rock off it.

3 varieties of mosses tied to the driftwood. Java fern tied to small rocks, and a couple free floating cause I ran out of string. Vals planted, the Val leaves mostly melted in transit so I'm hoping they come back from the roots well. We'll see!

Anyone want to suggest:
A foreground plant? Stock lighting so I'm told that's low-medium. No Co2, but ferts. I'm open to pretty much anything! And I want to get something tall and feathery for behind the rocks, to mask the filter and heater when I add it.
