So I finally moved in to my new apt, tore down my 10g and my 5.5g and combined everything into a 29g....all in two days. My parents came into town and helped my roommate and I move. We rented a truck, but only had it for like 6 hours, so we were a little rushed. Here are a few pics:

As you can see, the plants are kinda all balled up. I was too busy unpacking that I wasn't able to do this neatly...oh well. All the fish made it ok, I was especially worried about my GBR, which was in a tank without heat or filtration for a day before it made the move into the new tank, which at first, didn't have heat. Right now, they've been in the tank for like 5 hours and everything seems well (knock on wood). The fish are eating, my galaxy rasboras and endlers are well colored, but my B. brigittae and GBR are a bit pale, hopefully they're just adjusting...and I've started planting and scaping.
30" 130W Satellite fixture (currently one dual 6700k/10000k and one dual actinic bulb - soon to be replaced by two 9325K bulbs) I'll be running one bulb for 10 hours with a 2-3 hour noon burst. Moonlight will be on at night.
Pressurized CO2 (SuMo regulator without solenoid and redsea diffuser) If I wanted to add a solenoid, which I probably do, how could I do it?
Rena Xp2 filter with 150W smart heater on the intake. I have a pair of the acrylic flowpipes from fishman9809 that I'll be putting on later.
3 bags regular Flourite (really happy that after 2 hours of rinsing i'm having very little cloudiness)
Hygrophila polysperma "sunset"
Lysimachia numularia (creeping jenny)
Cryptocoryne wendtii bronze
1 Microgeophagus ramirezi (Blue ram)
8 Celestichthys margaritatus (Galaxy rasbora/Celestial pearl danio)
7-8 B. brigittae (Chili rasbora, don't remember the count)
Poecilia wingei (Endlers livebearers)
