VERY nice, your tank has a very tranquil look to it. What are you going to be stocking it with?
What is the plant on the left, closest to the driftwood? Is it a type of anubias? If so, it needs to be grown attached to a hard surface (such as the driftwood), not the rhizome buried in sand. If it's another plant entirely ignore what I just said!! I really like your tank, looking forward to seeing it once it has a chance to fill out. It's going to look terrific!!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Very nice setup. Are you planning on letting your plants grow wild or are you going to keep them well trimmed?

I've been considering exchanging my current fish with a few Discus but then I noticed my current layout is too cluttered with driftwood and plants. Your layout, on the other hand, seems as though it may suit larger fish species. I'm curious to know what fish you'd be keeping in this tank.

You probably already know this, but once your tank does cycle (and yours is probably already cycled) you should be careful not to add too many fish at one go as doing so would result in an ammonia spike. Just thought I'd leave this little tip here.

Do keep us updated.

Could say Im jealous.. but im not.. but I am.. lol
I like your tank!! I have a 75 just waiting to be filled.. Which I cant do atm, because Ill be moving soon. Dont wanna establish such a huge tank then move :( that would suck. Are you going to get some floating plants for that? For my 75 I was planning on having an open space where fish can swim, then have a place heavily planted, then another space with floating plants that block light and with a few shade-loving plants. Ill have to show you it in a month from now.. lol. Literally a month from now...

Love the tank tho! Would like to know what kind of lighting you are using!

Ahh.. yes.. that plant is an anubias.. and it does have a rhyzome... remove it from the substrate or it will rot.

HI All,
Thanks for all of the replies and comments so far. The plant in the far left corner is not an anubias it is a Rangeri Sword. I recently setup this tank to home my group of rainbowfish which is currently in my 55G Planted Aquarium. I'm then thinking of turning my 55G into an Amazon Biotape. The Light fixture is a Aquaticlife double T5. The substrate used is a layer of organic soil, and topped with a layer of sand. I'm not sure at this moment if I will add any floating plants because there are 2 Red Tiger Lotus bulbs planted which just started to bloom so depending on how they look I will make a decision on that later. I will continue to update this post, but you can also view all of my aquariums in HD video on youtube under user name: Zakartaz.

My Error... there is an anubias planted as well it slipped my mind.... I know anubias should be mounted to rock or driftwood, but I've always had a lot of success with it growing in fine substrate as sand... now I'm thinking of options to replace it with.
