Your setup looks great! I think the best place to buy plants is from members here.

Agreed best place to get plants is from hobbyists. Check out the Swap and Shop forum here as well as the Sponsor's forum.

I received my remote control RGB LED light bulb yesterday from Elemental LED and I think it works great. Here is a pic and a YouTube video I took of how it works on the Smooth setting. They have a few different settings as you can see on the remote. Not bad for $50 bucks. It as 16 different colors.

Thanks I will check them out. I just would like something different I guess.

I don't know if its a good idea to plant my tank after I have already filled it with water. I wanted to to it before but I do not think that is going to happen since I have no new plants now unless I take some from my 10 gallon tank, which is something I might do.

You can find those plants at the SnS here from time to time, try to check daily and it won't take you long to find them.

You have a sweet set up and I can't wait to see what you do with it, good luck.

That's a pretty cool bulb, they remote controls the bulb???

Does anyone if it is bad to add plants to a newly set up tank. Will the algae bloom kill the plant or do something bad to it. I do not want to spend money on plants and then they die 2 weeks later due to algae blooms. I know I see a lot of people add small foreground plants only. Thanks.

it's best to plant as much as you can in the beginning that way the plants can outcompete the algae.
