Hello,
Here"s a picture of my 75 gallon tank. I am still in the process of building it. I think I can use a few more plants. My stands contents is getting full and I am shopping for a small cabinet that will be installed next to the stand. The cabinet will be used to store my test kits, additives, food and etc.

Very nice setup!

I do recommend a few more plants, Java Fern would look nice in there. So would moss, such as Java Moss or Riccia (My favorite). But it looks really good.

Thanks,
I take a look at the java fern and the ricca. I am not to sure about the moss. The one thing I do not want to do is make my tank look too much like a garden that hides the solid aquascaping.

You're welcome.
In that case, you should look at Penny Wort. I like it atleast.

I thought the same thing before I actually put the moss in there but it is very low light and I just hide it in between pieces of driftwood. Fry like to hide in it and it is really good for helping process ammonia and all of that.

It is dark green and if you spread it out can give a more volume to areas. I wasn't too fond of it at first either but I really enjoy my moss now.

Wow, you built those. Beautiful. Nice wine rack at the bottom of the 10 gallon too!!! Great idea! hahaha. Does the table top swing open?

You have some very beautiful tanks! I am jealous!

Like Jamie was saying some more plants in the 75 would look amazing, maybe more lights too? It might just be the angle of the picture though but it looks dark.
