Thanks, CmLaracy you are absolutely right it is darker. I will be using 150MH x2 so it should grow dark. I just saw macclellan's E. tenellus "micro" and I have decided on glosso for the foreground and E. tenellus "micro" for the the background. 20-30pots of glosso should be here by Sunday and Ill plant that Sunday night/Monday morning. Ill have to wait for the micro cuz he sold out. No no plants in it yet! but Ill add some smaller stones to the front to see if it improves the scape. I was thinking if I should moisten the substrate now to hopefully release some ammonia. Sort of like an emerced growth method without any plants.

For the glosso I was going to go with an online store, but a LFS is giving me about the same price for a large order. Either way its not cheap ordering lots of plants. But I want a large plant mass to avoid an algae breakout.

I just read through your entire thread. I admire your patience. This is a project that can be done only one way, the right way. My tank build is a few weeks behind but with lots less experience. I will keep an eye on your planting because so far with the attention to stand, rocks, floor and layout I'm very impressed!

For lighting I decided to go with the aqualight pro, for better light control and I really wanted moonlights. I hope it comes in this week. If anyone has this light can you tell me if the 96watt power compacts are square or straight pin. Because I want to replace the actinics with one 6500K and one 10K and also order the hanging kit. I already have the 8k MH bulbs. 30 pots of glosso should be here tomorrow.

Wow I just realized I started this thread in may and still no plants. But this tank started two years ago with the purchase of the stones. Plus this hasn't been easy on the wallet, but Im proud to say I have not used plastic to pay for this. Just happen to jump on good deals when I see them.
