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....

Really digging the look bro, plants look healthy like no other. Keep it up, you are a great plant grower!

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!!!

Jason, it really does look great. Your dedication to the hobby and the learning process is enviable. I'm looking forward to seeing your skills evolve in your new place.

Agreed!

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

Wow, I think your tank look sweet. I hope I can get my 75 where I want it soon.

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!
