clwatkins, thanks for the advice on the light. I bought mine today. I hope my HC starts to grow like yours. Do you think it will be effected because my tank is immersed.

i think that your hc should still grow even though your tank is full of water, give it some diy co2 or some excel and it should grow, give small doses of ferts and you could have a carpet goin after a while, in this tank, i dont have any water in it yet, so co2 in the air is readily available and i dont need to dose ferts (i have a layer of mud under the sand) in your case, you could use a type of kitty litter from wallmart that is called special kitty under your sand (make sure to get a kind of kitty litter that is just clay and is not scented, usually the cheaper the better, "special kitty" is cheap and doesnt have any extra chemicals in it) you could also use cheap potting soil (look around on google for the type of potting soil you should use) to fertilize your tank (be sure to put the stuff under the sand) if you have any other ?'s feel free to ask
good luck

no, at least I dont think so, I have some rotala in there atm to soak up excess nutrients. The water remained cloudy for a while, despite me doing large wc's Two nights ago I did a 75% wc and the water cleared up immediately and is now crystal clear!
