Bek: I used seachem biogravel for the substrate. It was my first planted tank as well and i went through alot untill i got something that finally stuck. Spent alot of time at my LFS talking to people. Just go for it, there are lots of people willing to answer your questions. I also use DIY Co2, 1/4th tsp to 1.5 cups sugar with a diffuser i made out of a powerhead and a waterbottle which helped the plants alot.

J: for sure, i love my tiger barbs they are so silly. My biggest one eats so much that it looks like a blimp floating around for the rest of the day. They get a bad rep for having a bad temper but in the right enviorment they get along with everybody. Thats intresting about the green barbs at my LFS they are the same price as the regular tigers, but the albinos are considerably more expensive. The first one i bought is kind of a half and half tiger barb/green barb has a big green patch with alot of green sheen on it. Great fish :)

Looks great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow someone actually "finished" a tank. That never happened to me. Always something I have to change every couple of years or so.

Well, you are never truly done :) got everything where i want it though. Dmaxx: those went from halfway to the top to that length in about a week, rest assured they have been trimmed several times since then.
