For a good palnted aquarium to need 3 things: good lighting and a CO2 injector that is easy to make and clean water. Good lighting go to ahsupply.com and but a light that wil fit your hood. For a CO2 injector I use a 2 liter bottle with, a hole in the cap for aquarium tubing to be siliconed in, a length of tubing and an air stone to act as a diffuser. Look on the net for DYI CO2 diffuser. I fill about 3/4 the way full with warm water add 2 cups of sugar and a packet of baking yeast--within minutes this setup will produce CO2 for you plants. I use an under gravel filter with small gravel to set up a biological filtration with a Aquacler filter on the outside. If you don't want to do this with a filter be sure to change 1/3 water at least once a week and siphon the gravel. Use Java ferns for plants easy to grow on driftwood for natural effect. azgardens.com for plants.
