Nice job on the planting. I'm setting up the same size this week (rehousing my 45 gallon monsters) and want to go with live plants.

I'm looking at your substrate and notice the size of the gravel. Is there something underneath or did you just go with the gravel?

I had lionhead goldfish befor this tank, had 100 lbs of gravel, could not throw it away. looked around and found a producd by API (Aquarium Pharmaceuticals) it's call First Layer Pure Laterite 20$ a box, you mix it with your gravel. One box per 55 gallons, I used 2 boxes in my 75 gallon...SO much cheaper than any other product on the market I could find....and you can see..it works great...this tank is 4 years old....
