My order came today in great shape from azgardens.com. Some newbie things I learned and pictures of the setup. I ordered:
3 Java Moss $2.98 $8.94
3 Hornwort $0.98 $2.94
3 Egaria najas $1.98 $5.94
1 Monster Anubias nana $19.98 $19.98
1 Giant Java Fern $12.00 $12.00
3 Cladophora aegagropila -Marimo Balls $4.98 $14.94
I had no idea that 3 java moss would be like the size of the quarter. For $2.98 a piece I figured they would be longer strains, but I suppose I was wrong. I decided not to put it in the tank because of the size I just coulnd't decide what to do with it.
The egaria najas weren't as appealing as I thought they would be and it turns out they have much higher requirements than I had originally thought for some reason. I'm not sure where I went wrong there, nor do I actually remember ordering that, but I must of for some reason. That reason just escapes me for the time being.
The rest were perfect and are pictured below.
The 110g tank with a coralife 2x65 6500K compact florescent. Should the light be upgraded or is it good enough for the "low light" plants I have in there now?

A beautiful java fern and marimo balls! Man those marimos are really neat, hopefully they do well because I'd like to order more.
You can't see them in any of these pictures, but the current fish stock is:
6 red eye tetras (going in for trade soon possibly)
3 tetras with long angelfish like fins (no idea on the name of this fish)
4 pineapple swordtails
3 clown loaches
Planned future fish include angels, gouramis, cories, and a pleco.
