    lights - glo duel bulb t5HO 6700k (just under 200$ with bulbs)
    Co2 - 5 pound tank no solinoid (used - 45$ with 600psi still remaining)
    filter - fluval 304 (free. it was broken, i fixed it)

    substrate - play sand! 3" depth (6$ needed a bag and a half)
    diffuser - fluval ceramic diffuser (picking it up tomorrow)

    flora -
    - Eleocharis parvula (hopefull soon to be carpet)
    - 2 moss balls

    -giant salvania
    and of corse, algae:Blah:

    fauna -
    - 3 year old bala shark
    - neon tetras (shark bait)
    - ramshorn snails

    questions - for ferts, how much of what i have should be dosed weekly?
    - substrate, since its playsand should i throw in root tabs ?
    - will the salvania suck up all the ferts, should i get rid of it?
    - is it worth it to use RO water? dont have a RO system, have to buy it weekly for my salt water tank (pain in the a$$)

    hopefully now i'll be able to grow somthing other then algae !!!
