Well, after a while of gutting my tank, carrying around 50 pound sand bags, and re-adding everything...... I set up my new NPT! Unfortunately, i had to add the pleco and cory cats within 10 minutes of setting up the tank. The cories are already happily searching the sand for food. The plants are: A lot of anacharis, an amazon sword, and three unidentified plants. I will post pics once everything clears up (the tank is still really cloudy).
