reason for wanting plants: I've actually been slowly saving up & gathering the supplies to start a NPT. After visiting the bettafish forums, I saw just how marvelous those jungle-looking type of tank were and I've been deadset on starting my own since then. Being that I'm a college student with barely any income, I'm having to do everything one baby step at a time. I started with the light, then fertilizer and I'm slowly moving on to plants. I plan on purchasing the actual tank (5gal kit from Walmart!) and *appropriate* substrate sometime around/after Christmas. Until then, all the plants I purchase are being put in my current 5gal so that they remain healthy and continue to grow. So far, I've only really purchased stem plants, but I would love to branch out to others, namely anubias, amazon swords and java fern.

If you end up getting a ton of entries, I'd be able to donate some plants too :)

Thanks for the tip aokashi. I'll definitely have to find something to prop the light piece of the hood up. Thank goodness it's a separate piece from the rest of the hood.

Hey aokashi, is it okay if I post a pic of my tank? The pic I have right now doesn't have a proper bulb in the tank hood, but I'm going to look at lights today. Plus my camera is MIA so I won't be able to post an updated pic

reason for wanting plants: I've had a 10g planted tank for a few years now but recently I had to completely redo my tank (new substrate, new bulb, completely cleaned it out) because of a serious tank crash. Many of the plants made it but some died off, including the Frogbit, most of the Hornwort and Crystalwort. Right now all my plants are showing signs of growth after about a week and a half since its been redone. I'd like to get rid of the large fake plant in the left corner and fill its place with a real plant.
