I love Planted Tank.
Also, you may get a lot out reading OldFishLady's posts here regarding NPT - all her tanks are dirt tanks and she's pretty knowledgeable on the topic.
I made my 10 gallon an npt pretty easily. They come with their own challenges and pitfalls of course, but I am really enjoying watching the plants explode with growth now it's settling down and my plakat is just in glowing health.
You will need some algae control animals, however. I use shrimp - they make great betta snacks, also.
