Talking my 75 g.

Hello. This is my first truly planed planted tank that I had to set up as fast as I culd do to a spilt seam in my 45 tall (its my profile photo) I found the tank along with the stand on my other favorite web site, Craigslist. The tank was an old reef tank and I cleaned and re- sealed it

Tank with a double strip and single strip light (2 lights) -- $90

Stand -- $25


I will be using my 3' quad T5 Ho light I scored for $100 on cl

Photos will tell the you the other parts

UMMMM how do I upload photos with my phone? I have a lot

That's the start. What do ya'll think? I'm not happy with it at all. But I need to get to my moms house to get what plants I do have in my other tanks. Till then I only have this.

I like the rocks. They look very random and natural. What type of plants do you intend to keep?

Thank you! The rocks are petrified wood for plants I have on hand are some anubias and java fern. I had a few others but they didn't make it do to my lights blowing out (old [censored][censored][censored][censored]y stock bulbs) and a few bare (almost dead) crypt w.green and bronze. I'm still playing with the scap as the tank cycles. I'm going to add the substrate from a planted 15g I have had set up for about a year to help seed this tank with along with the filters from my other tanks that I'm taking down. As for other plants, I'm not sher if I'm going to do a jungle look or a more dutch style look.
