Here's my 29g. It hasn't grown out yet. I'm always adding and rearranging.

All my tanks are planted, never had problems with algae though. Probably because all my tanks have snails and shrimp.

What type of bulbs? I only had an outbreak because I put 2 T5HO's over my tank. Way too much light without CO2 and ferts. Finally found a balance though, I only run 1 6700k bulb now, it's raised off the tank, and I use dry ferts. Starting to get some really nice growth...and no trace of algae. I'm ordering a plant package as soon as I get a list together. What type of plants do you have?

Well. We have almost everything. Getting a few live plants to start by a local guy. Going to rinse out the sand we bought tomorrow. Having trouble finding driftwood.

Yeah, that's where the $ comes in. I found a great piece at Fintastics in Charlotte, but it was so expensive. They have a great selection. I'm still searching for that "perfect" piece though.
So you know of a local place to find plants?

We are talking to a kid in Black Mountain ATM. We can get the plants from him cheaper than the at petsmart or the pet supermarket in Asheville (drove there today to check prices) got a test kit today also. And bubble wand for my new 10gal for my betta.
