    75 planted

    Took a long break from the hobby. Recently got back into it when the wifey bought me a 75 gallon for Christmas. She noticed how often I would check out the aquarium section every time we went to the pet store haha.

    Originally wanted a fish only tank but the plants took over. Only a few cardinal tetras and a rainbow shark in there right now.

    Impressive! Do you use CO2? And do you use RO water, or tap?

    That's a great low tech tank. Props to you for keeping it simple, and finding ways to use our tap water to grow beautiful plants rather than take the easy (if expensive) route of RO water

    I was thinking about it but Iíd have to drain half the water to do it. Was thinking of supergluing it or maybe thread.

    wow very very nice scape! to fix some of those soil leaking onto the sand, you could use some cottons to plug the holes between the stones. then use some smaller stones to hide/cover the area

    Grogeous man!... I would add smaller rocks of different sizes to scatter over the sand so the bigger rocks dont look too much of a wall.

    I thought about that and filling in with Anubias nana but had a bad case of anubias rot.
