Thanks for the feed back guys! I will be going with just the plants for now, once the plants are in I will add the beta, they are cheap and hardy. Wood came today and I added that. Substrate may need a little adjusting in the back but I will wait once i get the plants in.

Do you think i should get a decent set of Utensils? I saw a few of them and they are really expensive, I was trying to find a cheaper route. Any ideas?

Sure, get the Fluval Planting Tongs that come with the Fluval Flora. They are stainless steel, almost 11" long, and my local shop sells them for $9. They also sell Stainless Aquatic Plant Scissors. They aren't curved, which can make trimming carpets a little difficult, but they also aren't almost $100 like the ADA ones .

Plants are in! I think I have them placed in decent places or at least I hope so. So its still day one with the plants, should i have put a fert in to help get them started? Ive included some pictures. Let me know what you think.

I also added 3 Giant Danios. I grew up with a few of these a long time ago and they survived anything that I put to them. This should get the cycle started. They were cheap and on sale so not a huge loss and they are also pretty nice comm. Fish.

Nice looking setup, have this tank and light on our to get list for upgrading our Suluwesi biotope and this thread has been terrific for getting a feel for the tank scale.
