very well done what size is that did you get all that stuff local what type filter you running and you pushing co2
KJ/Gema, thanks for the comments.
I've done quite a bit of remodeling since these pics but more or less same concept.
To answer your questions KJ,
Tank is a 75 gallon (US), background is styro-epoxy custom
Substrate is EcoComplete Black (w/ some red mixed in w/ peat balls and black - bad idea - aquarium gravel)
Lighting is 4 X 65WCF 12 hours + 2 X 55W T5HO 10 hours
I do inject CO2 thru a bubble counter recessed into background - along w/ & just underneath filter intake tube. No idea of bps count, but enough to keep plants pearling during afternoon/evening - but not so much fish gasp at surface in morning ;0)
Also fertilize (semi) regularly w/ dry fert mix/recipe + Excel (Glut) + a liquid FE & Trace mix.
Most plants acquired thru trade on-line or w/in the OK Aquarium Club membership - not much of them available locally
I can add a list of species if you'd like (buts its extensive!)
