My tank suddenly looks terrible in comparison!
Haha thank, can't be that bad!
Jose! I'm one of the lucky ones that get's to see his setup in person!
Now I wanna be a Discus in HIS tank!
Thanks Herb, can't wait to have you over!
uh, you know this is a planted tank forum, right?
j/k. beautiful tank. great write up. great photos.
glad to see some freshwater enthusiasts give those darn reefers a run for their money.
keep us updated.
LOL thanks! Still got a ways to go with those darn reefers though
Thanks Anthony! You need to come see it in person too.
Nice looking wc's. Who did you get them from?
Thanks, bought them from Snookn/John. He's a vendor on monsterfishkeepers, simplydiscus, and Aquabid
omg that is ridiculously amazing,
Thanks, appreciate it!
Good work! I plan at some point to do a similar tank in terms of scale and with a similar collection of manzanita set in a root-like fashion, except that I wouldn't be doing it as purely bio-type as I'd be flooding it with plants as well.
Can you tell us how you secured the manzanita at top and bottom though? That was one of the questions I was most concerned about myself in terms of trying to achieve the same thing.
Thanks! Most of the pieces of wood are just laying vertically, either against the center brace, or corner braces. There were a few larger stumps that were still floating, so I secured them to a 12x12" tile. Just drilled a hole, then screwed it to the tile. Worked like a charm!
Awesome, awesome tank. Sumps are totally the way to go for large tanks.
Cant wait to see how it does. Do you plan to grow java moss in the sump?
Yes, I'm a huge sump junkie. I even had a 10g sump on my 57g planted tank (I have an older journal on here too). No plans to grow anything in the sump yet, but I just might, to help consume some nitrates.
