Hi! I have been reading and reading and reading and I seem to be even more lost than I was before! I have recently purchased some succulents. Here is the link to be exact:

Here is the list of what I got:
Seriecio Rowleyanus / String of Pearls
Kalanchoe / Mother of Thousands
Echeveria Perle Von Nurnberg / Rose Colored
Echeveria Harmsii / Red Velvet
Echeveria / Green Velvet
Crassula / Jade
Crassula Ovata Arborescens / Baby Jade
Sedum Rubrotinctum / Pork n Beans
Tradescantia Pallida / Purple Heart Wondering Jew
Aeonium / Zwartkop
Aeonium / Sunset Crest
Aeonium / Kiwi
Aeonium / Green Rosette
Aeonium / Variegated Green n White Rosette
Aeonium Hawthorii / Pinwheel Rosette
Stapelia / Starfish Flower
Crassula Marnieriana / Jade Necklace Vine Miniature
Graptopetalum Paraguayense / Ghost Plant
Portulacaria Afra / Miniature Jade
Crassula Rupestris / Good for Hanging Baskets
Echeveria Dehrenbergii / Ghostly Blue Rosette
Aloe Vera / Medicine Aloe
Euphorbia Tirucalli / Pencil Cactus
Delosperma / Ice Plant Purple or Pink
Delosperma / Ice Plant White or Orange

Now what I'll be receiving are cuttings/small plants. I was thinking of putting these in my empty 29 gallon fish tank. I used to use it, but I haven't for about 3 years since I've moved around. I have all the accessories with it, including a hood with flourescent lights. So I was wondering if anyone has any advice. I will only be putting plants in it, no water falls, no animals. Thanks for your help!

WoW Will you have room for all those?? Many of those resent too high humidity,very high light requirements and several get quite large. I have seen beautiful succulent terrariums but for me they rot . So I mainly grow them in the yard. How do you plan on potting and arranging??
