cheers, i normally put about 10-20 small fish in the normal edge and 20-30 in the tall one

What happened to the old hardscape in the tall edge? How did the cyperus helferi and plants do under the LEDs?

The old scape was sold unfortunatly, thats one of the drawbacks when you aquascape in an aquarium store... the helferii grew well under the stock LEDs. it took some time for the plant to adjust so some of the older leaves got some algae, but after trimming away those leaves the new growth was nice and healthy! the crypts, moss and anubias grew fine as well as expected.

Thanks for the reply. Any updates on the new tall scape icepotato89? Also, the image link for the old tall tank seems to be broken/deleted. Do you still have that picture?

Sweet tanks, haven't seen a pet shop like this in the US yet (though I know they exist). Keep up the great scapes!

It's pretty unusual for a LFS to sell off the display tanks or fully scaped tanks.
