I've got a few pieces of driftwood if u wanna see
WOW i hope you ordered from a reputable dealer!
Great plant list, nonetheless. I think you might find that you're going to have trouble fitting all those plants into a 29 gallon, but it's hard to say until you actually have all of them. Best of luck!
I ordered from so hopefully it'll be ok. I'm not sure if they are reputable or not, but they were just about the only place I could find everything I wanted in one shot. I wanted to plant this tank heavy and have it look nice from the start. Especially since a lot of them are slow growing! Hopefully they all fit lol
That certainly is a nice list of plants indeed. Coming from experience and personal preference, I would have narrowed the list to a handful of plants, say 5-8 types as I find having a bunch do really well offers better aesthetics. Having dozens and dozens of types sorta says I have collectoritis.

Do you have a medium full spectrum light fixture tp sustain these lovely specimens?
I have a 2 bulb t5ho fixture with a 10000k and a 5500k bulb in it. Some cheap fixture I got from somebody who thought they could use it for a reef lol. I think it's made by zoomed.. I would have to look tho.
