First Planted Aquarium

Ok, so time for me to start a thread with my tank progress. I come from the Reefing world, so hopefully I can pull off a planted aquarium.




Tank: Oceanic 30g cube, couldn't find a stand at first then found a Biocube stand and it works perfect even has a little lip in front so I can set tools on while I'm working on it.
Light: AquaMedic 150W Pendant with ADA NA-G lamp
Filtration: Fluval 205(Don't know if I should ditch this for an Ehiem as i got it for free), trying to find Lily pipes (ADA? GLA? Ebay?)
CO2: 5lb Co2 tank, Milwaukee regulator/pH controller, AquaMedic 1000 Reactor, Ebay drop checker

Substrate: ADA Amazonia II, Power Sand Special M
Rock: Seiryu Stone
Plants: So far I have HC and Glosso doing DSM

Future Fauna: Celestial Pearl Danio(LOVE these guys) & CRS



Finished my light stand using 1/2" EMT and all set up



Hardscape done

Found a little plant sprouting from the Seiryu Stone. Anyone have any idea what it is?

Could be anything. Most likely a seed hitchhiked in with your driftwood.

Ok an update:

This is from two weeks ago:





And this is last week:





My HC doesn't seem to want to grow at all. Its growing in thicker and thicker but its not spreading any. Also around the edges its getting a little yellow. On the other hand my glosso is doing great!
