I come up a few times a year for supplies, Logan just got me some fish. I am in need for some plants for this 75 riverscape...........let me know if you folks wanna swap some gear. I have hardware and plenty of trade gear!

keep me posted....love your tanks!

Though there are multiple this i would do quite differently, this is an awesome tank.

If it were mine, I'd start by changing the substrate and adding lots of different plants, both terrestrial and aquatic. Don't get me wrong though, this is a great start!

Very cool - I'd be interested to hear how you did that sometime if you feel like sending a lengthy PM my way. I incorperate a little, but not a lot. Unfortunately in bio I don't have a lot of curriculum freedom. With my aquatic class now, that is a whole different story.
