72 gallon planted

After what seemed to be forever, I finally have gotten my 72 gallon bowfront planted. Lighting is a finnex fugeray, leds. From the research that I did this light should put me into the high end of low lighting entering into medium lighting. The light seems to give good coverage in the tank. Plants in the tank are mainly a mixture of different stems and different swords. I also have brazilian pennywort floating in the tank. Here are a few pictures taken just after finishing planting everything. The water needs some time to settle after playing in the sand. Pictures were taken with my phone so sorry ahead of time for the quality. Will have to get the good camera out when I have some extra time and get some better photos.

Here is a FTS






Left side of the tank




Middle of the tank




Finally right side of the tank

That's going to fill in very nicely.

When you are looking at cameras watch out for the autofocus, as much as it is sort of cool for outdoor or regular photos it is a PITA when taking shots in the tank. You want a decent manual focus option and not a silly little thumb rotary button as you just can't focus on a moving object (fish) with it. If I were buying a camera again I would skip all the fancy aito focus for an old school lens focus.

Thanks Jeff.

I have a good dslr just need to get it out. Right now with no internet at home the phone is the most convenient thing to use for getting on the forum.
