Where did you order your plants from?
Love the tank, going to look amazing!
Have you used sun sun filters before? I'm setting up a 90 gallon, looking at filters, hard to decide!
I have not personally used SunSun before, but a buddy of mine had one of their lower flow units and loved it, so I figured Id give it a shot.
As Belton mentioned, they are from aquariumplants.com
Your setup and stand look great. Wish I were as handy with woodwork. I had a 75 in the past also, and hope to get one back going again sometime. I still have the stand lights and everything. I just need time and willpower.
1. You mentioned not wanting a reactor, so I was going to ask you if you had ever tried one of the inline diffusers. I had one on my 75. I have to agree; however, that the bubbles rising are magical. I also am getting together a tank, and have been having this exact same debate with myself. I don't want more crap in the tank, but the disk diffusers are easy and fun to look at. F it. I am going to do disk. Can always add an inline later if I want.
2. I had T5 on my 75. You won't regret it. Someone on here (maybe it was burr740) mentioned that LED is just too much a pain with all the variables you have to figure out before you can buy one. T5 is much easier and straight forward. Also some nice bulb color choices. I have LED for the tank I am working on, but that is because I wanted to try it and not completely be the old guy stuck in the past.
They look like aquariumplants.com pictures.
Thanks for the complements, there really wasnt much "woodwork " in the stand. just some 2x3s wrapped with a black sheet
I have used the inline diffuses before, I dont like them. They just spray micro bubbles all over the tank. From what I remember, they were quite loud too, I could here this constant hissing. Im very noise sensitive, I cannot stand little white noise sounds.
I have had great success with LEDs on my other tanks. But with this tank being as deep as it is and with the plants I want to keep, I just couldnt find a cost effective LED solution. Im happy with the T5ho unit I got, I think its going to work great!
