At 1 foot wide I would honestly stick to smaller fish. Nothing longer than 5 or 6 inches, so that they can turn comfortably and be able to do more than essentially pace from side to side.

Definitely agree! But I might have to part with the tank, because it doesn't look/fit right in the spot I had wanted to put it, and I don't really have room to put it anywhere else. I can't decide whether I want to resell it or if I just want to put it in my basement and hang on to it for when we get a bigger house. I'm pretty disappointed about it!
But on a side note, just got done setting up this 50 gallon cube thing that I also picked up over the weekend. Not sure yet what I want to put in it, but it's up and running!

Caught blue handed!

Bought The Top Fin Pogostemon Helferi and Staurogyne Repens packaged plants from Petsmart. Oh and I got a survey to complete online, save $3 for tomorrow to get them at a different store. Also the price was $1.00 more for the package at that first store 8.99. The first store I went to didn't have any new ones said their stuff comes in on Tuesday.

The second store half the plants looked awful, half looked great. I am guessing the awful ones maybe had been behind the others and didn't get much light, or older stock. 7.99 per box, as was the price quoted from two other stores in a different area.

Set a trade with a member here for some other new plants. it's kinda like plant swap for me lately. Getting lots of new ones I have been wanting.

Got a bunch of Anubias Nana petite, and Rotala a couple weeks ago, and some starts of a few other new types to me, plants from local area hobbyists! Maybe picking up a cool flame moss driftwood this week!
