I have that same tank! both of them actually! Only my 26 didnt come with a hood and its impossible to find a versa top or anything to buy for it, so I have to keep it open-topped with my sorority girls.
I think it looks really nice though! I've heard that you are supposed to have about 75% of the ground covered in an NPT with mostly fast growing stem plants to start with just to make it easier on you, but I'm not sure how accurate that information is.
What lighting is that? I have one of those aqueon flourescent strips with a t-8 15w on mine, and while its bright enough to keep the plants alive, I dont notice any spectacular growth, which is why I'm wondering if you have something better on yours!
Goodluck with it! I'm dying to turn my tanks into NPT's but I dont have the time to spend on setting them up all over again right now. I would love to hear about your progress!
