The AngelFish 72 Bow tank

Hello all

As Im slowly recovering from knee surgery, i figured i rescape my tank a lil and turn it into an Angelfish Tank...... so here we go!!!!!!

Tank: 72 gallon Bow

Lighting: Catalina 3x54 watt lighting system (2-6500k bulbs, 1 plant grow bulb)

Substrate : 6 Bags of flourite Black Sand

CO2 : 20Lb tank

Filter : 405 fluval filter

300W Heater



So First thing first i Had to get my All black background!!!

Next I put the driftwood on the left side because im gonna have vals growing on the left so they can hide the heater , water pump and air stones ..

im wondering should i put more driftwood on the right?

My vote is for dwarf sag!

The AngelFish 72 Bow tank

I love Dwarf Sag. With C02 it will carpet the entire tank in no time. I'd really like to try staurogyne sometime

That tank really tied the room together
