That's cool I'm doing the same thing. I've got a bag of cherries in the mail right now.

What size tank are you setting up for them?

Ah ok, are you doing a home made filter? I am thinking about getting a spare ten and putting all of my aquatic plants that I use in my vivs. Kind of like a holding/growing tank. But I wouldnt mind making it look nice, maybe even a 20 gallon. All of my lighting is dual t5 fixtures, so I think that will be sufficient.

I am trying to get my r/o unit hooked up also, so I can stop buying it for $0.50 a gallon at manhattan aquarium. Are you in college?

Oh ok. I only have vivarium pictures, not too much interest in those around here. I also completed a paludarium today.
