My 220 is 30" tall (low tech) and it has taken ~8 months for the plants to fill in that top half. If that is a taiwan lily on the right, it should help in that regard. I also found that looooong stem plants can be awesome in a tall tank. Something like bacopa or lysimachia can really look nice reaching up two feet.
Post 66 of my journal shows both of these points a little bit. Both my taiwan and my stem plant (forgot the species just now) are touching the water line now and it looks nice.
It takes longer to complete the picture in a tall tank, but it can be done and I suspect you will like it. Give it a chance before you sell.
Yea, the plants are finally starting to grow. But in general, I hate the height. I cannot do anything without getting soaked, draining the whole thing or risking breaking the tank by darn near jumping into the tank.... =/
Here's a terrible cellphone picture from a few days ago. But you can still see the growth....I think.
