I use tap water that's added with conditioner for 25mins and then introduced to the tank. I don't have any water testing kit.

I just returned from the aquarium shop after placing an order for a tank lid. I will be purchasing a Phillips daylight 12W lamp (those spiral shaped ones). The guy suggested I purchase 1KG of river sand (brown) which should be enough for my tank size. I am planning on keeping my current marble powder sand as well but in the front of the tank without letting it go to waste. I will use a cardboard as a divider between the river sand (in the rear) and marble powder.

I might have to spend on buying tongs for planting or could I use my hands?

If I should just float whatever plants I buy how long should I float them? How long until I know a plant is going downhill?
