Cheers for the info about the plant guys, looks like I may have to find a replacement. Perhaps I should see how it goes first? Or would that risk fouling the water if it doesn't do well?

What tanks did you get, and where from (as I'm in Vic too)?
What filter would you recommend in there?
What lighting would you recommend for just one of those tanks?
I'm trying to get some Susswassertang, Lilaeopsis and Frogbit too...was there a particular store you got them from?
Thanks so much
I got the tanks from Coburg Aquarium, they're very reasonably priced for what they are.
I got the susswassertang and frogbit off eBay (if you do the same, make sure it's from an Australian seller as plants can't be imported) and most of the rest from two places: Subscape in Richmond, and Coburg Aquarium where I got the tanks. Some bits and bobs were purchased from LiveFish.com.au ages ago when I first ventured into planted tanks when I had really low light.
I honestly don't know too much about filters, but I've got a sponge filter in each of my tanks over 8L, and they seem to be doing well. Got those off eBay.
Hope that helped a little! ^.^
