I just ordered by JBJ 6g Nanocube today from Aquariumplants.com. It should be here sometime late next week.
Also, I just completed an order from BigAlsOnline.com for the following items for my 6g:
1 bag of Onyx Sand (should be plenty for a 6g!)
Hydor Ekip 200 Thermopump (replaces the crappy stock pump and is a 50w heater as well) - rated at 90gph which is less than stock. I've read the stock one is too powerful (106gph) in general - not sure if it would be for a planted tank or not but I didn't want to risk it. Plus I get a 50w heater
Corallife Digital Thermometer - Never had one, thought I'd try it
Seachem Flourish - 500mL
Seachem Flourish Iron - 500mL
Seachem Excel - 500mL
Seachem Prime - 500mL
Seachem Phosphate Test Kit (not sure if this was needed. It's mainly a "just--in-case" item)
Hagen Battery-Operated Pump (for emergencies)
Macros will be purchased either tomorrow or over the weekend from Greg Watson.
Plant decisions will come over the next week or two as I research what I want to grow. I also need to buy some aquascaping scissors (not from BigAls - I don't like their selection).
Fish plans are 2 dwarf puffers (1 male, 1 female), 1 otto, and 1 cherry shrimp.
Water parameters will be tested out of the tap this weekend and I'll post those in this thread. My water is fairly alkaline which the puffers will appreciate.
Pictures of everything ordered (1 big pic) will be posted next week. I am not in a hurry at all to begin this tank. I really want to take my time - it's already 3-5 months in the making with all the research I've done, plus I've had a 29g & 45g planted tank in the past. My past results are not very good because I had intense PC lighting and little-to-no CO2 injection. Bad idea!
Thanks for reading this and for help/suggestions/advice in advance!
