Time to let the 75 grow back in

Total redo of an overgrown mess. Still some culling to do once I see what thrives and what stalls.

Nice tanks. Post them in the Journal section and keep us all up on the progress! Are those Cochu's blue tetras in the 75? I've always wanted some...

Thank you. I've been doing these for a long time but still struggle with materials and scaping. Just not gifted but I'm still trying.

Well, you could do what I do: Jungle Method. Throw 'scaping to the winds and have a few big cobbles here and there and a chunk of wood somewhere and let the rest be dominated by big plants. Nature style.

I think these are nice looking tanks that will grow into a lush and densely planted scape.

Your choice of mostly stem plants means that you will always be re-scaping and pruning aggressively. This can work and work well, but be aware that the plants you choose determine the amount of work you will have to do to keep the jungle in check.

I am not sure how much "gifted" has to do with the ability to form a pleasely aquascape. If this kind of creativity is outside your normal accomplishments, take some time to study what how and why nicer scapes work. Apply yourself and concentrate. A cdrtain amount of creativity can be learned and there are few things that are more rewarding. It looks to me like you understand some basics: tall in back, big in the corners, etc. Try to hide the equipment a bit more, let the foreground fill in, you are on your way!
