Thumbs up My 75g sunken forest <-


Been a while since I had an update on my 75 gallon. I just completed a move of the tank into a new house and decided to put some pictures up of the display. Pretty standard, low-tech -- no ferts, co2, etc., Anubias, ferns, various stem plants to add some red. Tank should be a beauty in a couple months or so once the red stem plants in each of the corners get re-established.Still looking for some moss to cover the wood as well. Currently doing treatment on the slight bit of algae, and sadly during the move I lost my 2 altifrons and L14 somehow but the others survived. Added 10 black neon tetras and 12 rainbowfish, along with a roseline for some color and fast movement.


and an angle of the trunk to give a little more depth. plenty of swimming room

Really nice! How many Discus do you have? What is the other cichlids?

That tank really tied the room together

Thanks guys! I have 2 discus in there as of now - cobalt blue and red pigeon blood. The other cichlids are of the eartheater complex - g. redhead tapajos, g. steindachneri, s. leucosticta, a. heckelii, g. balzanii. Also have a black angel as well.

I like the hanging roots too! These cichlids love sand and digging so I had to make a layout that allowed for sandsifting an adequate floor space. All these plants were trimmed too right after the move - the crypterii in the front went nuts and started to get too big haha

Nice tanks. Has anyone told you you need to change your profile pic? Kind of reminds me of Tsarnaev, the boston bomber.
