This weekend I decided to put together my first planted aquarium and wanted to get a few suggestions. I am waiting for a new stand to arrive for the tank before I begin to cycle. I have a 29 gallon tank (30x13x18) that will have a black sand substrate, some driftwood and possibly a few terra cotta pots. I think I would like to stock with a south american theme with tetras, corys and either a bolivian ram or GBR on availability. I would like one tall centerpiece plant for the big pot (amazon sword or similar?), maybe some java fern since i've read its hardy an attaches nicely to driftwood and one smaller plant of some kind for the foreground. Please let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions.
