As I posted in my introduction. I am completely revamping my tank and turning it into a planted community tank. I am currently running a Fluval FX6 canister plus a HOB AC 110 for filtration and using sandstone and mopani wood for hardscape. The substrate is just black pebble type. The wood has been in the tank for about 4 years. The current lighting is a basic stock flourescent with one side burned out completely.

I am working on a plan as far as layout for the new set up and havnt found a good source for ordering plants online that isn't sold out of the things I want.

Thus far, I have purchased the following. Some of which is arriving today:

All new glass tops to replace the old

2x Current USA Satellite plus pro LED with mounting brackets

Full deluxe system from Aquacave including
20lb cylinder
Ph controller
Aquaristik dual stage regulator
Turbo diffuser 600
Bubble counter liquid
Glass co2 Guage

Substrate is eco-complete with 1 inch pool sand top

Additional JBJ 1000 powered

Additional Eheim Jager 300w heater

25lbs mountain stone, aquascaping tools, digital and floating thermometer and Seachem root tabs for initial planting.

What else should I consider? Any glaring mistakes? I did a ton of research.

OK. I didn't know it was not going to display the post as written. It was not created as a run on babbling mess I swear.....lol
