I just ordered a book, the natural aquarium (book 1), the 2004 aquascaping DVD from AGA etc. once these get in I hope to learn more. I have been reviewing as much as i can here, and have also looked at some of the contect winners in my aquarium size to get some ideas.
Most of the items I need are on order, on there way, substrate, and lights. I have the tank, stand and XP3 filter. So i can get started very soon. I will likely put in a build thread.
