HF's 75 // Half wood & Half plants

My favorite fish of all time is the Bolivian Ram. So just a heads up.

So I had gone from this in my 40gal breeder:

This was my pride and joy, but personal matters got in my way.

To this when a got a free 75hard scape)

I loved this tank as well, but I didn't like having fake plants, as well as a hardscape when Bolivian Rams really don't live in the African Rift Lakes.. lol

And now to this:

Short(low quality) video of the awesome piece of driftwood.

I had put the fake plants in there to help my impatient self cope with having just wood in there.. lol

But so far I have ordered Vals, and a ton of crypts.

Not looking to do alot of demanding plants this time around, so it will be a simple tank.
