Default 75 Gallon Gallery 56k Warning

I am moving after this weekend so I had no choice but to take pictures of my 75. Its still a little immature and I am not completely happy with it, but its all a learning experience.

Hope you enjoy....

DUDE That is incredible!!!!! I donít think I've been this impressed with a scape in a long time!!! Itís such a clean layout but you still managed to pack tons of variety without looking crowded or overwhelming... I love how it makes you take a look at it even longer to take in all the subtleties!!! Amazing!!

could you give a few particulars about your setup, lighting, ferts, water chem... nothing to crazy just general details. Looks great!!!

Agreed!

Will you have to do a total teardown for the move?

Tank looks outstanding. I particularily like the Ludwigia glandulosa (?) highlights.

I think it would look really cool with Congo tetras haha, but maybe thats just me...it could cause the tank to look slightly smaller, however.

Yes, but i dont mind at all. I wish I had just a few more months to move this tank to maturity, but I really do enjoy creating new ideas every 6 months or so.

That is very nice. It is basically to the point where a few days (to let the stems in the back left grow up ~2") would make it "perfect" I really like the crypt/wood/sand transition in the center-back. Really nice layout. This use of Anubias coffefolia is one of the few times I have seen it used to good advantage in a layout.

Nice photo aswell!
