Advice: first off, Welcome to the Hobby! it is a really rewarding hobby, your aquarium will reflect the effort you put into it, if you run into problems dont give up! the planted aquarium is extremely rewarding!
About Yourself: i first got into the hobby with a standard 30 Gal Aquarium setup (Non-Planted), and shortly after developed an interest for planted aquariums, so i up graded to a 38 Gal setup. which of course i turned into a planted tank. i have some clippings from other plants from when i go diving around the area too.
