Title is "Big Leaf" because it's a big "leap" from my old 10G to a 38G.

Tank Specs & Stats:
Tank: 38G [36"x12"x19"]
Filter: AquaClear 20 + Rena Filstar XP2 [Arriving Jan. 5th '10]
Heater: Aqueon 100W, AquaClear 50W
Lighting: Coralife Double Light SW (swapping lights) Arriving Jan. 5th '10]
Substrate: 1/3 Eco Complete, 2/3 Fluorite Black
Decor: Manzanita Driftwood and Lava Rocks
CO2: DIY for now, but will do pressurized later on.

3 Peacock Gudgeons
4 Pencilfish
3 Guppies

5 Nerites (Zebra and Clithon spp.)
2 Cherry Shrimp

Flame Moss
Taiwain Moss
Tiger Lotus
Java Fern

As for stocking, I'm not sure exactly what I'm gonna have aside from the Peacock Gudgeons, Habrosus Corydoras and Angelfish and a school of 10 or Furcata or Threadfin Rainbowfish.

If you have any suggestions on fish, I'd like to hear them!

Peacock Gudgeons, actually, Tateurndina ocellicauda. They are peaceful and grow to about 2.5 inches maximum. Females have a black stripe on the edge of their fins. Males have a pronounced bump on their head.
