Default 45g high low-light tank (updated 1/14/2013) (was: re-intro with a new-to-me tank)

Hi everyone! I'm back after a five year hiatus. I have tanks since college but after my last move, I did not set my tanks back up. For Christmas my hubby bought a new-to-me tank off Craigslist and built me a stand (still need to add the trim.)


25x25x18
45g (estimated with PT calculator)

I'm planning a low tech community tank with java ferns, vals, anubs, swords, crypts. My fam is more into the fish than the plants but we love the look of the planted tank. Searching for the perfect piece of driftwood and gathering my substrate supplies. Still trying to decide how to finish the stand.

Any thoughts on this tank? I know it will be a challenge since it is so tall. I read somewhere about planters on the sides of a taller tank. Does anyone know anything about those? Not sure how to go about finding them or if they are DIY.
