Hey teddo...Lookin at the last pic of the tank, it is amazing how you planted that 400 gallon tank to look like it is a 125G!! I am in awe of the semi final look. It is definately an inspiration. The angels are an awesome focal point in that tank!!
You got this stuff down bud!!

Lookin at the angle fish, I think the change was a very good thing!! How much better can ya get it?

And then the tank "crashed'.
Suddenly heavy algeablooms broke out, plants started going bad, fish started dying. Never found out why realy, but it broke my heart.
Stopped fertilizing, lowered the lighting, and let it run it's course.
I neglected the tank for a few years, just let the horemanni's take over and a few fish.
Been getting interested more and more again, last year. Originally there was a plan to make a new tank in another location, but these plans are on the backburner at the moment.
Been thinking about making it a new biotope again.
South american ofcourse, and i'd like to get it close to reality, so it's more about finding a spot which could be recreated closely, but also nice plants have to be there.
Luckily more and more biotope videos are available.

For now i try to find out which plants work in the deep tank (and not just only the echinodorus) and stil can be found in natural biotopes.

Holy crap, now THAT... is a thread resurrection! Tragic, but interesting! Good luck this time around, if your tank can crash like that, I'm worried about mine...

That's looking very nice Teddo. I like the lush greenery with the few accents of red.

I've never regretted over engineering a system, but often regretted under engineering one.

Growth after a week, stil trying to find out which plants do good. Eichornia's (diversifolia and azuarea) are doing great.

Well, with CO2, decent lights, and a fert regime, what plants would NOT do well? Okay, big deep tank: answer is very high light plants. But it seems to me if you are willing to keep up with them, you could grow nearly anything you want in there.

Love love LOVE big tanks!
