My overgrown & neglected 75

Yeah, been busy and uninspired. Maybe next summer I will order some new plants and 'scape this puppy again.

This tank could look really nice with some time and effort.
You dont neccessarily have to buy new plants, just take the time to reaarange and prune and youll be surprised

I really like the overgrown/wild look- you could just rearrange some to make it more balanced.

i too think that it looks great the way it is



There are 2 types of people on this forum. Those that have algae, and those that lie and say they don't.

Thanks. It really bugs me but I am deep in a rut. Hoping this forum will give me a kick in the pants!

as a general rule taller plant in the back and shorter plants in the front gives a decent sense of depth and is more appeasing to the eye, without pruning just arrange plants this way and see if it isn't more appealing to you

my 75 gallon journal is planted this way. i just threw everything in waiting for my driftwood to arrive. looks decent but scaping comes soon after !
