Urkevitz's 75 gallon update 4/30

I am just trying to figure out how to post a pic. What do you think. Any advice on posting pics, photography would be appreciated. Can someone explain to me how I can post a few pics with text between them?

I'd say you pretty much got the hang of it all! Any questions (on photography)??

Plants are gone, but my 33gal and I are back after a long hiatus.

Thanks for the compliment, on the right side I am trying to leave some room for some rotala magenta to get some light. Hopefully it will take off soon and fill in.

Very nice looking tank and healthy looking plants Urkevitz. What are the stems in front of the watersprite in the left side ?

100% sand substrate. It is granitic topdressing sand from my golf course mixed with some tahitian moonsand to darken the color.

A little mulm collects on top of it close to the glass, but other than that I like it. It is easy to plant stems in and the MTS keep it loose. If I had a few bottom feeders the mulm wouldn't collect in one area as much.

Sweet... I just replanted my 40 breeder and am using sand as the substrate. Hopefully I have good results, as you have.

I think it is pygmy chain sword. I bought it at petsmart, the motherplant is located under the driftwood most of the other plants came off of it.
