My first planted tank was filled with tap water that had a ph of 8.4. I had to spot treat algae here and there, but it was never overrun and the plants did fine. I didn't have any finicky species...

Gravel isn't ideal, but my first tank had rather large gravel and the plants thrived. Granted, I never attempted a carpet in that tank.

I like to use black spray paint. Yes, you can get the background paper from the fish store, but it's a pain to get it to seal to the glass with no bubbles.

I use a reef light and like it. So what if it has too much blue and not enough red? My plants still grow and I think it looks awesome.
