Need Ideas for a 180
Ok, reef is out, substrate is on the way. I ordered an aqua scaping from aquarium plants to help but I'd like to see a general consensus. I don't have any programs to draw my tank but it's a standard 180g acrylic tank. It is built in the wall and is thus see thru. I have the overflow on 1 side only literally on the side of the 24" deep. It is 6' long 24" tall and 24" deep. 55g sump with 750 w 10k Halide with 396w of a deep violet actinic( Spectrum pretty dang close to "grow bulbs"). An automated Co2 system with ph controller will be added as well as an automated top-off. 750gph return thru sump. Aquarium plants substrate. and I have 2 pieces of driftwood coming.won't get. And some of our favriot looking plants which the pics are copy wrighted. Not sure if anyone has fun with this type if thing but if you don't ask you won't get. We'd like some open aeras for fish to swim and we're not a real big fan of covering the entire bottom. I'd like some bare areas with just the substrate so it's not looking so crowded.
Thanks for any ideas....
fyi this is our first planted tank
