Thank you aokashi and ravenwinds with your kind encouraging words. Just what I needed! This is really testing my patience lol. I hate the sand, i can't move anything without it getting everywhere! So, I'm stuck with that. Ok.
So i will tie the anubias and java fern to my driftwood with a rubber band I guess? I realized I actually don't have wisteria, This is what I currently have:
small brazil swords
If you have specific planting instructions for those please advice me!
I can go buy the stem plants today. Which stem plants should I look out for? I will also buy some trumpet snails (how many? i went crazy with the anubias I don't want to come home with like 10 snails lol)! Should I get shrimp too or hold off? (so sorry for all the questions, please bear with me).
I will place Lucy back in her 1 gallon. Can I place a plant or two in there floating so she can enjoy? If so, which ones? I think she likes the whole jungle fever thing lol.
I keep telling myself Rome was not built in a day. it takes time and patience. I have 3 other tanks to turn into NPTs (way later) so this is my practice until I get it right!
THANK YOU GUYS FOR ALL YOUR HELP. YOU ARE REALLY HELPING OUT A BEGINNER HERE!
