12g jbj cube- a new beggining

As some of you may know, i started a 10 gallon planted a while back. Well, I have recently moved froom texas to illinois, and I have had to give away all my fish.

Anyways, to the point. I had a 12g nano cube dx w/two clownfish in it, which i had to clear out. Now, I have it with me, and I scraped all the coraline algea off of it. I have been thinking of turning this into a planted tank.

Anyway, so far this thread is useless. I just wanted to get it started, and ask some questions.

First, will 4 wpg be high light? Would i be able to keep rams in this tank? (im obsessed with them). If not, how many cherries could i fit? Last, what plants COULD i keep in it?

Also, any plant donations are welcome.... I dont really have any pet stores around here with many plants... I will have the tank set up in about two weeks when im in a house, and then I can give my address.

Ok,well im done babbling. I'll get some pictures up as soon as I get the tank itself set up.

Welcome to Illinois!!!

I can't be of much help though, as I'm also working on converting a SW tank to planted.

Best of luck!

Which part of Illinois? Because if it is Champaign/Urbana area, hit me up. I can give you advice, cuttings, or just someone to go to the LFS with.

In college....so no aquariums for a while.....
