My 75 Gallon Wide Project

I used this tank to house lizards and once they were gone I decided to switch to a fish tank. Here are my photos from start to finish. I am currently waiting on more ferns to come in so that I can fill in the open spaces. Im using Live Plants, Java Moss and Fern. I will leave the tank fish less until I get the eco system stable.....

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra

Very very nice!
What are you hoping to stock this beautiful tank with???

540L/140G - 'Tidal Jungle' (Crabs) | 254L/67g - 'Backwater Pool' (Fish/Snails) | 96L/25G - ''Twisted Minds" (Fish/Snails)

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.

These are my two options:
Option 1
Zebra Plec L106 or Siamese Flying Fox
Red Fin Shark and White form Red Fin

Option 2
Zebra Plec L106 or Siamese Flying Fox
Rosy Barb, Black Ruby Barb, Golden Barb, and/or African Barbs.

Haven't decided yet, Going to get more plants tomorrow and give my tank about a month before I get fish. Want to make sure my plants are thriving first.
