okay i have been gathering the things i need (or think i need) for a 75 gallon planted tank setup. i am not able to spend very much at a time (disabled from military AF) so i can only buy a little at a time. i was wondering if it was possible to gather an assortment of plants not having the 75 tank setup prior to the setup that way i have enough planted material when i do set it up and start its cycle process. could i use a couple of 10 gallon tanks to gather the material and make a setup lighting etc to keep them alive until they are needed?
