75G planted by Overfloater....



I finally got my 75G setup. All the plants and fish are transferred from my 40G breeder. Still waiting for it to fill in quite a bit.

Great way to start out, what are you using for lighting? Is the 40 gallon still up and running?

great start. Your Ammania is going to have more leg room here why is the substrate looking blue? Kind of cool though.

I will do aquascapes after I collect all the plant species and grow them to perfection.

The lighting is only about 100W of NO fluoroescents right now. I have more lighting on the way, but so far the plants are taking the light reduction quite well. The 40G has been taken down and I'll most likely auction the tank off locally. I wish I could set it up but I just don't have room.

The ammannia will have lots more room and I'm sure it will appreciate it. I finally have the room to increase it's mass. The substrate is actually black. I haven't set the manual white balance on my camera so some colors can appear a bit off.

It's been a month and things have not gone too well. The only positive aspect was an upgrade in lighting, bumping me to just shy of 4 WPG. My nice large stand of Rotala 'green' almost died off due to a lack of light. What you see is all that is left. My ammannia has stunted pretty badly and algae has cropped up. I am running too lean on my ferts I think. I'm going to increase my dosing but it will be at least a month before I see any noticeable improvement.

Is that java moss around either side of the anubias? Look great from that distance by the way. I don't see any algae.

The left side of the anubias has some pelia and a branch with java moss. On the right are several java moss "cakes" I made that are coming along nicely. Algae is light, only a bit of green hair algae. The marimos are new. I picked them up at the local auction for $6. I'm not sure what I am going to do with them but they will probably be removed when I have enough plant to take their place.

A few new pictures. Some species have been removed and a few of the current species have def iciencies I'm working on. I will be replacing the brilliant rasboras and neons with a large number of harlequin rasboras. As always comments are welcome.
