Caton's planning journal.

Alright, so I plan on moving in a few months, perfect time for me to sell everything, and start new... and the right way....with a 110g tank. I hope to have one tank, where I can focus all my money and attention to it. I hopefully will be able to rid up a automated water changer, and all that jazz. I plan on having the tank high-lit, amazonian I, r/o water (unless the tap water is soft enough) and a sump or FX5. The tank will be high light, with maybe even metal halides, fast growing stems, and such. Now...If any of you know me, this thread will go on for a long while and it will change themes because I am indecisive.

But, let's start now so I can get all my questions out of the way. Keep in mind, this tank will most likely have a sump, and auto-water changer, with lots of plants.

Here we gooooooooooo!
60 cardinal tetra
6 Denisoni barb's
15 Congo tetra
10 Bosemans rainbowfish
5 b/n plecos
10 marble hatchets

What do you think? Sump will hopefully be 55g or 75g.

Hopefully the plant list will be:
Ammania sp. 'Bonsai'
Blyxa alternifolia
Blyxa japonica
Cuphea annagalloidia
Eichhornia diversifolia
Hydrothrix gardeni
Hygrophila pinnatifida
Hygrophila sp. 'bold'
Limnophila aromatica
Limnophila sp. 'Sulawesi'
Lindernia sp. 'India'
Ludwigia brevipes
Ludwigia inclinata
Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata 'Cuba'
Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata 'Pantanal'
Ludwigia senegalensis
Poaceae sp. 'Purple Bamboo'
Pogostemon erectus
Pogostemon helferi
Pogostemon stellatus 'Broad Leaf'
Pogostemon stellatus 'Narrow Leaf'
Polygonum hydropiperoides
Polygonum kwagoneum
Polygonum ‘Sao Paulo’
Ranunculus inundatus
Rotala sp. 'butterfy'
Rotala macrandra 'japan red'
Rotala macrandra 'green'
Rotala macrandra 'Variegated'
Rotala mexicana 'Araguaia'
Rotala mexicana 'Belem'
Rotala mini 'type 1'
Rotala mini 'type 2'
Rotala sunset
Sphaerocaryum malaccense
(Did I mention that this is completely plagiarized from azfishkid?)

He makes good choices when it comes to plants

And yes, I know that there is a lot of time before I move. But man...I want to move and start over.
