Alright, so got the tank and light (found one in the back :P)
Here's the initial layout:
Filled and with a few plants, got to wait til after the holidays to order some of my other plants... still have more rotala and the trident in another tank but I'm too lazy to do it right now
Not really happy with how it looks right now but I'll be playing with some rocks in there and more plants, hopefully it looks good all filled in.
First impressions on the Fluval Stratum though is I think it's 10x better than AS2, didn't cloud hardly at all (what little bit there was cleared up in about 10 minutes) and planting isn't as difficult as everyone said it would be.
