Well, the tank is setup. I have 4 swords in it at the moment along with 2 pieces of driftwood, 2 Sunset Fire Gouramis and 3 Bronze Cory's.

Now, I know I need to wait for the tank to cycle before doing anything else, but I'm sitting here at a loss.

I'm looking for recommendations on Plants, aquascapes, and fish to get my mind moving.

Rex,

I read through it but don't quite understand why not swords?

Also, I'm looking for ideas for aquascaping and fish after the cycle too, for anyone else.

I do plan to keep the gouramis and corys though. ;)

Ah, k. I wasn't to worried about the cycle itself, but that gives me something to thing about.

I'm all ears for recommendations, especially if someone has some links to pictures of the various species.

Well, I'm beginning to think that I definitely need more lighting, it's the how to do it that has me stumped at the moment as I would prefer to keep the hood on.

Why not get another 96w strip to put behind that hood you have? I went with a tek light so that I would have plenty of light, that and I cant stand CFs..

I have a 46g bowfront that Im working on getting setup as well. I just got the Aquasoil in it last weekend.. Im waiting for a little more flow of cash to arrive so I can get either some more rocks or driftwood...and then some cash for some plants and co2...and then Im set...
