As far as plants go I am planting with trimmings from my Nano tank I have on my desk at work. I will be adding more plants as tank settles.

I had the filter running on another tank for a month and 30 gallons of used aquarium water from water change. Right now only fish is a pleco that grew to big from previous tank.

New Light, No water

Water added, first clippings

Second clippings added and added some driftwood

Keep an eye on those discus they arent looking to healthy, the two brown ones have stunted (the eye is to large for the size the fish is) and the blue one well yeah he doesn't look like he'll last to long...

Make sure you shop around when buying discus, look for top quality.

Looking good otherwise!
